Show This Little Town


The thing that makes me tick,

Is determination to succeed.

This isn't just a want in life,

For me it is a need.


Though some people may discourage,

Or even put me down,

They're never gonna stop me.

I'm gonna show this little town.


I'm gonna go to college,

And I will get my degree.

Those who tell me I will fail,

They underestimate me.


I'm smarter than they think I am.

I'm braver and stronger too.

Just wait until I graduate,

I'll come back and show these few.


They thought they'd bring me down,

But they only planted a seed.

Little did those haters know,

They fueled my determination to succed.
