  I STAND 5'3 MY feet FIRMLY TO THE GROUND
  THE FOUR SEASONS MAY COME SPRING
  SUMMER FALL AND WINTER MY FEET
  STILL REMANS FIRMLY TO THE GROUND
  DAY MAY COME AND NIGHT MAY FALL
  MY FEET STILL REMANS FIRMLY TO THE GROUND
  THROUGH RAIN SLEET SNOW AND STORMS
  I STAY RESILLANCE THROUGH IT ALL
  I'VE LOST LOVE ONES AND FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY
  BUT MY FEET STILL REMANS FIRMLY TO THE GROUND 
   ENEMIES MAY TRY TO BREAK ME DOWN 
   I REFUSE TO LET MY FEET OFF THE GROUND
   I'M NOT WERE I WANT TO BE AS OFF YET
    BUT IF I KEEP MY FEET FIRMLY ON THE GROUND
    AS THE SUN CONTINUE TO SHINE MY ROOT WILL
     ALWAYS KEEP ME ROOTED AND FERMLY TO THE GROUND
