Cherry, Neneh - Eyes On The Prize Lyrics

Run run, run run, run run yeah here come
Run run, run run, run run yeah here come here come.

In the agony of the feet and the thrills of victory
(come on, come on)
You know I won't stop trying
Got my eyes on the prize
And I'm coming ready to compete
(come on, come on)
You know you need to bring it on

In the agony of the feet and the thrills of victory
(come on, come on)
You know I won't stop trying
Got my eyes on the prize
And I'm coming ready to compete

I know you can do it
With your heart into it
If you wanna break great hearts
You've got to move it
No time to fall back (fall back)
When you're on the right track (on the track)
Want you to keep on pushing
Got no time to relax

Put the word out tell the streets
I'm determined with self-belief
Delving deep inside my core
Steel my toes no time to pause
I am the prize getting my rewards
I'm representing a higher cause
Move on up we ain't going back
Keep on pushing don't relax
Achieving goals ain't easy though
I share the load with a team of pros
You can do it putting crazy work
It's like the race that we came in first

You can do it keep on moving
You can do it keep improving
You can do it you won't stop
You can do it reach the top

I know you can do it
With your heart into it
If you wanna break great hearts
You've got to move it
No time to fall back (fall back)
When you're on the right track (on the track)
Want you to keep on pushing
Got no time to relax

So I ain't gonna waste no time (waste no time)
Opportunity comes once in a while (once in a while)

No rest for the wicked if you wanna be a winner
And if you're gonna run around
Don't lose cause that's dry
A habit you can't kick it
And everyone's a sinner
And if you're gonna run around
We'll lose and I'll cry

    This feels American but is actually British in origin, which surprised me. I suppose the "what is he like" in a cockney accent gives it away.

    I miss the time where the female singers looked like normal beautiful people, not like plastic barbie dolls wearing vulgar clothes.
