Gotta Try
Teaching the Character Trait of Persistence
Caroline and Danny


This song is available on Caroline and Danny's Street Smarts.



I tried to tie shoes when I was small
“I can’t,” I wailed, “Do that shoe thing at all!”
Then one day I did it! I got the job done.
Velcro was out and tying was fun.

Chorus:
Gotta stay in the game
Step up to the plate
Don’t throw in the towel
Cause I made a mistake

Gotta try, gotta try
Won’t say I can’t do it
Gotta practice, work hard
Find the time to stick to it.


And riding a bike without training wheels
Covered with Band-Aids from my head to my heels.
I wanted to quit, give up on the fight
But I wouldn’t stop trying till I got it right.

Chorus

Gotta try, gotta try, work hard
Gotta try, gotta try, stick to it)

Sometimes at soccer, don’t know what to think
I’m kickin’ out of bounds, my game really stinks
Gotta practice, stay focused, get in the groove
Then I might make some goals, help my game to improve

Sometimes in school I can’t figure it out
Want to throw down my pencil. Let it all out.
If I want to succeed, then I gotta see
That asking for help is the best thing for me

Chorus:
Gotta stay in the game
Step up to the plate
Don’t throw in the towel
Cause I made a mistake

Gotta try, gotta try
Won’t say I can’t do it
Gotta practice, work hard
Find the time to stick to it.
