Mary Mary - Dirt Lyrics




"God made dirt and dirt don't hurt!"

Funny thing about a garden
Beauty lives within its gates
Bugs and thorns and weeds, they grow there
But they all help to create
Vivid color variations
Sweet aromas and sensations
Realize under it all, something not so beautiful
But we all ...

[Chorus:]
Need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little bit of dirt to grow
We need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little rain to wash our souls
We need a little bit
(I) need a little dirt to grow.

Life at times can make you weak.
And I have cried myself to sleep
Cause reality makes you cry
But the truth will dry your eyes
Things they just can't stay the same
When you work hard and you pray
Yeah it may be kind of rough now
But the point I'm trying to make is that we

[Chorus:]
We all need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little bit of dirt to grow
We need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little rain to wash our souls
We need a little bit
(I) need a little dirt to grow.

Oh sometimes you may sing for yourself
You struggle hard just to prevail
its the lesson you need to learn
its the way you've got to earn
Champions never accept defeat
They fall and get back on their feet
Cause they know (they know)
Like I know (I know)
That if you want to grow we...

[Chorus:]
We all need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little bit of dirt to grow
We need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little rain to wash our souls
We need a little bit
(I) need a little dirt to grow.

We all need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little bit of dirt to grow
We need a little bit
(I) Need a little bit
Need a little rain to wash our souls
We need a little bit
(I) need a little dirt to grow.

Need a little dirt to grow
(It will make you better)
Need a little dirt to grow
(It will make you stronger)
Need a little dirt to grow
(Oh we need it, ah)
Need a little dirt to grow
Yeah

  8. okonkwoobiageli

    Mama, should I love all the colors, or just the colors that look like me. Love them all, my child, that's what the good book says. Just try, and see past the outward man, and attempt to love even the most broken parts of individuals. But mama, it hurts. I know it will get better, just keep at it, till sunshine envelops every part of your being.

I LOVE ERICKA AND TINA ...(MARY MARY) THEYRE AWESOME LADIES..AND THEYRE MUSIC MOVES UR SOUL. THANK U MARY MARY.

  27. Pamela Y.Howard

    My Spirit Lifter!!!! Thank you Jesus!!

  28. Allen Turner

    I love all of their music, but this song speaks to all of me

  29. Courtney Smith

    There was nothing in here about the glory of God, his will, the salvation of Christ or anything like that. This isn't gospel music it's inspirational but it doesn't glorify God and is completely non biblical. Nice song, does nothing to praise God though

    pdddddp1

    Liar. The first line in the song is " God made..." Any born again person can Hear The Lord God all through this song. IF, you're saved, you can hear Him loud and clear here....IF.....you're saved :D

    A Brooks

    You can glorify God without quoting the bible.

    pdddddp1

    @A Brooks oh yeah?...well you'll either quote it verbally, or by the way you live, but you WILL quote it.......IF,....you're saved.

    A Brooks

    Exactly. When God and His word is in you, every word out of your mouth does not have to be scripture to move and touch people. The same way Dirt moves and touches people. Even though the song does not quote the bible, it is a song about redemption and God's Grace despite mistakes you make and the trials of life. That gives glory to God without ever quoting any scripture. I'm not saying forget scripture. I am saying quoting scripture is not the ONLY way to glorify him.

    Justin McGill Xbox!!! Reigns!!!

    Well this some is mainly about uplifting our spirits when a person is feeling low spirited positive songs of positive influence on us as humans of course it's not a praise and worship song you do know they have more songs like this right you seemed surprised at this track but yes they do have praise and worship songs as well they mix it up their a contemporary gospel group but I'm sure you know this! They really have great songs!

  30. Iris Morton

    The Sound is one of my favorite Mary Mary albums. The entire album moves me and puts me in straight Praise and Worship Mood

  31. Diane Atkins/Stone

    This is hands down 1of the best cds Mary Mary has made, and when I put it on I play it at least 3 times, I live every song

  32. Marlyn Hunter

    Such a powerful, positive, and purposeful statement of the human experience. Thank You Lord!

  33. Wontavius Gotchaword

    It's true we need dirt to grow!

  34. lorna omeally

    The gospel music and teacher and the gospel of JESUS Christ Brings joy into our hearts and minds. To God be the glory for the things that are available for a change in the y
