Natural Gift

See that girl walkin' down the street

She looks like a prima donna

She's a star in her head and the world's at her feet

She looks at you twice and your heart skips a beat

She didn't learn it at high school or from a glossy magazine

You see she's a natural, she gotta natural gift

You gotta rise above your stupidity

You're dumb but don't give in

You gotta rise above your station

Discover what's within

And with some luck and dedication and some careful manipulation

.

Everybody needs some inspiration

Everybody needs some motivation

Mix it up with some imagination

And use your natural gifts, you gotta natural gift

You got natural gifts

Ah, hey, hey, hey, ah, hey, hey

And use your natural gifts, you got natural gifts

.

You don't have to be a genius to find

All the hidden potential deep in your mind

You don't have to know about nuclear physics

Know all the formulas and vital statistics

You don't have to be an intellectual, you don't have to be a scientist

To use your natural gifts, you got natural gifts, yeh

Use your natural gifts, you got natural gifts

You gotta stop this depression you're in now

Stop this emotional rift, you need a psychological lift now

Everybody needs some inspiration, everybody needs some motivation

Mix it up with some imagination and use your natural gifts

There are bad people, mad people, bitter people, scared people

Wanna put you down and keep you in your place

But you gotta chance to break out, you gotta chance to get out

And use your natural gifts
