Chorus:
Nah, nah, nah, nah
No guarantee
Nah, nah, nah, nah
No guarantee

Got a one room apartment
To a little tiny space
Isn't much, but keeps the rain drops
Off my pretty baby's face
I'm just gettin by, and the money's spent
Don't even know how I'm gonna pay the monthly rent
But I know exactly what I want to do
I want to make this work with you

I know you're wondering what I mean
Nothing in life is guaranteed
I never know just where I'm going lady
I need direction in my life

{Chorus}

While I was out window gazin
I put your coat on layaway
You know I want to buy you diamonds
Soon as they increase my pay
Starting from down
It's hard to keep your head
Makin love every night on a squeaky bed
That's life, that's the way it is
There's no guarantee, baby

I know you're wondering what I mean
Nothing in life is guaranteed
I never know just where I'm going lady
I need direction in my life
Then anything you want to do baby
You know I'll be down for you lady
So let's just keep it strong
Let's keep it strong
Let's keep it strong
Ohhh

{Chorus} (2x)

Keep it strong
We gotta keep pushin on
Keep it strong
We gotta keep pushin on
And on
Ohhh

I know you're wondering what I mean, baby
Nothing in life is guaranteed
I never know just where I'm goin lady
I need direction in my life
Then anything you want to do baby
You know I'll be down for you lady
So let's just keep it strong
Let's keep it strong
Let's keep it strong
Ohhh

{Chorus} (2x)

I know you're wondering what I mean baby
Just get enough of that green babe
I never know just where I'm going
I need direction baby
Then anything you want to do baby
You know I'll be down for you baby baby
I'll be down baby baby baby

{Chorus} (2x)
