Move On Up

The Very Best of Curtis Mayfield
soul funk 70s motown groove

Move on Up is a song by Curtis Mayfield from his 1970 debut album Curtis. In 1971, the song spent ten weeks in the top 50 of the UK Singles Chart.

Curtis Mayfield (June 3, 1942 – December 26, 1999) was an American soul, funk and rhythm and blues, singer-songwriter and guitarist from Chicago, Illinois. Mayfield is probably best known for his anthemic music with The Impressions and for the soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Superfly. Perhaps because he didn't cross over to the pop audience as heavily as Motown's stars, it may be that the scope of Curtis Mayfield's talents and contributions have yet to be fully recognized.

Move On Up - Curtis Mayfield

Hush now child,
And don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
By and by
Move on up
Towards your destination
You may find
From time to time

Bight your lip
And take a trip
Though there may be
Wet road ahead
You cannot slip
So move on up
And peace you will find
Into the steeple
Of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind

So hush now child
And don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
By and by
Just move on up
And keep on wishing
Remember your dreams
Are your only schemes
So keep on pushing
Take nothing less -
Not even second best
And do not obey -
You must have your say
You can past the test

Move on up!
