Amerie - Gotta Work Lyrics

Sometimes it's gonna be days like this
Sometimes it's gonna be rain like this
Sometimes you're gonna feel pain like this
Sometimes you gotta work hard for it

Because when u feeling low
And u cant get no lower
That's when u know your close
Sometimes u gotta work hard for it

Woke up in the morning
It's another cloudy day
But that never mattered too much to me
'Cause it's still a new beginning
And I know I got it in me
Had my share of ups and downs
But now I know I can do anything

Some people think I'm aggressive
'Cause I know what I want
But that never mattered too much to me

Show me some body with no goal
Show me some body with no control
'Cause life is for living
So go and get it
When times get rough remember

Sometimes it's gonna be days like this
Sometimes it's gonna be rain like this
Sometimes you're gonna feel pain like this
Sometimes you gotta work hard for it

Because when u feeling low
And u can't get no lower
That's when u know your close
Sometimes u gotta work hard for it

Ohh gotta get it
Hey hey hey
Sometimes the road may seem too far
You never really know for sure
If you're ever gonna make it
Sometimes the end may seem so far
You never really know for sure
If u got the strength to make it

But u gotta remember

Sometimes it's gonna be days like this
Sometimes it's gonna be rain like this
Sometimes you're gonna feel pain like this
Sometimes you gotta work hard for it

Because when u feeling low
And u can't get no lower
That's when u know your close
Sometimes u gotta work hard for it

Days like this
Rain like this

Do it cause I love it
Feel like this
Gotta work hard for it

    I loved the makeup!! She's so gorgeous! That silver glittery eyeliner paired with black and a nice pop of pink on her lips she wore that look for sure. I love her hairstyle too. She really should come back all that talent gone to waste....

    Her sense of fashion hair make up everything is timeless a true icon

  11. Loris Baruffi

  16. reasy1978

    Sounds a lot like her other song 1 Thing.

  17. Brave Soul

    Amerie is the original. Beyonce copied her! Damn! I'll choose Amerie any day.

  18. Victor Jimenez

  30. Jehoshan Peiris

    My big fat greek wedding 2

    Her story is heart breaking. These record labels and these big artists have always been taking food out of deserving, hard working people's months.

  32. Selemawit

    A natural beauty and naturally happy woman 👌🏽☺️

  33. Queen SM

    Damn this my first time hearing and seeing this video.

  34. jerel

    This came from "Hold On I'm Coming" by Sam and Dave.

  35. Times Up 2U

    Damn! She came in the game with her own style (brains, beauty & beat) and got it stolen right under-neath her feet. That's so f'kd up! Years later and I'm still bumping this hit!

  36. President Stewart

    This song still sounds good in 2019. Great lyrics and production.

  37. Pavel Kto

    People wonder why Amerie is not on top of music charts? Well, maybe because she is not mason and didn't make a deal.

    listening and loving it 2019....Amerie come back please!

  49. Big Boy

    Natural beauty. So sad nowadays we have plastic girls

  50. haleigh

    way better than Beyonce👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  51. Teo Tioliendo

    Amerie is my favorite* Artist in the Seventh Style, true originality, natural beauty, art in motion, tropical smooth style, unforgettable eyes, luscious glow to her essence of beauty in her hair and eyes, and great legs, lines and curves down to her feet. Grooving with serve, shaking those curves, sexy stepping and rocking beat catching hips. The most sensual dancer in R&B. Excellent, with a touch of the wild and intra-feminent*. Tioliendo

  52. ChiLL

    she literally had IT ! Natural beauty , vocals, the dancing, swagg, like bruh we didn’t deserve her yo

  79. Edward Turner

    Fighting (2009) brought me here :)

  80. Joe Knowle

    Looks like she had a nose job, I knew she looked different.

  81. Gina G

    Thank you Amerie for not selling out. We see you girl!

  82. Caroline Barrett Miller

    Amerie looks and sounds fantastic..I just hate this particular song...

  83. stela stelovs

    Amerie plssssss comeback music needs you

  84. ChastityChained

    I listened to this song a lot in 2017 after I lost my FT job and couldn't find any type of work for almost 8 months, despite having multiple interviews. I never turned employment down; I just kept getting rejected. I never give up, though. I'm in a PT job that barely pay bills. I just keep looking for a 2nd job and I know the right position will present itself.

  85. Gary White


  86. Andrew Lynch

    So much better than anything they're rollin' out today.

  87. Soukaina Dou

    2018 and still listen to her 😍😍😍

  88. 695 Recordings

    The horn sounds take me back to the '60s song "Hold on I'm Coming" by Sam & Dave

    Carlo Disarò

    exactly! thank you 695 Recordings! I became crazy to look for the musical theme of the song "Hold on" by Mako and the Hawk. In truth I was looking for what is here (min. 13:30):
