   Well, Sis, I tell you:

Life for kids nowadays ain't very bright.

It's got gangs with guns

And drugs

And teen pregnancies

And places where you'll always find trouble.

Violence

But all the time

I see you reaching for goals

And overcoming these obstacles

And avoiding bad things coming your way

And standing up for what is right.

Where there ain't been no justice

So Sis, you keep reaching

Don't give up now -

For I know you can do it, Sis,

Reach for your goals

'Cause life for kids nowadays isn't very bright.
