Do It Right (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Get knocked out once
Learn, shake it off
Enemies will scoff
Let their past be the dunce

Feet placed deep into the sand
Seeds raised with a steady hand
Do it right
Future takes flight

Watch the leaves change
Take your time
No need to spend a dime
Dreams are within range

Learn from the chameleon’s sense
Do it right
Change the colors of your might
Let love be your defense
