Lyrics Edit

Stand up for your rights
Keep shining your light
And show the world your smile
Stand up for your rights
Keep shining your light
And show the world your smile

Back when I had a little
I thought that I needed a lot
A little was over rated
But a lot was a little too complicated
You see zero didn't satisfy me
A million didn't make me happy
That's when I learned a lesson
That it's all about your perception
Hey are you a papa or a superstar
So you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain't about the size of your car
It's about the size of the faith in your heart

There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope

Off in the back country of Brazil
A met a young brotha that made me feel
That I could accomplish anything
You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors
He lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight
But that didn't keep him from seein' the light
He said, what's it like in the USA
And all I did was complain
He said livin' here is paridise
He taught me paridise is in your mind
You know that

There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope

Every time I turn on the TV (there's hope)
Somebody's acting crazy (there's hope)
If you let it, it will drive you crazy (there's hope)
But I'm takin' back my power today (there's hope)
Gas prices they just keep on rising (there's hope)
The government they keep on lying
But we gotta keep on surviving
Keep on doing the best we can do and we'll do it

There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
There's hope
