We ain't gonna give up on this now!

"We Got It" is a song from The Wiz Live! that did not appear in either the stage or movie versions of The Wiz. Dorothy Gale sings it with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion after The Wiz orders all of them to kill Evillene, a task that will require a lot of courage for the "squad" to complete. Ne-Yo and Elijah Kelley, who also respectively played the Tin Man and the Scarecrow, wrote it, with help from music director Stephen Oremus and music producer Harvey Mason, Jr.

Lyrics

Scarecrow:
I’m not doing this
Cause even I know it don’t make no sense

Tin Man:
Breaking a heart got me this way
I ain’t in a rush to see that again

Cowardly Lion:
Just thinking about it is terrifying

Dorothy:
Oh
You ain’t gonna give up on me now. I won’t let you turn around
This won’t be easy, no way, no how, but we won’t back down
When the night is so cold, dark, and lonely
All you got to do is look at me and hear what I say

We got it

Guys:
We got it

Dorothy:
I got you

Guys:
I got you

Dorothy:
We got it

Guys:
We got it

Dorothy:
We got it, together we do

Cowardly Lion:
So close, yet so far, I can see our dreams from standing right where we are
The only thing that’s in our way are these impossible odds
I’m terrified this is just way too hard

Scarecrow and Ensemble:
What if I fail (fail)? How do I fly (fly), knowing there’s a good chance we’ll fall from the sky (sky)?

Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion:
What were we thinking? Why do we even try? That’s what we get for letting our hopes get too high

Dorothy:
I can’t believe what I’m hearing, get ahold of yourself

Dorothy and Tin Man:
You ain’t gonna give up on me now. I won’t let you turn around
This won’t be easy, no way, no how, but we won’t back down

Tin Man:
When the night is so cold, dark, and lonely
All you got to do is look at me and hear what I say
And we got it

Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion:
We got it

Tin Man:
I got you

Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion:
I got you

Tin Man:
We got it

Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion:
We got it

Tin Man:
We got it, together we do

Dorothy:
Ain’t nobody giving us nothing, if we want it there’s just no other way
I’ll be right here, come what may

Tin Man:
Together we’ll beat and face it

All:
You know that I’ve got you there's nothing we can’t do, oh no, oh no, oh no

Dorothy:
Our dreams are waiting for us so let’s go

All:
We ain’t gonna give up on this now, we refuse to turn around
This won’t be easy, no way, no how, but we won’t back down

Dorothy:
And when the night is so cold, dark, and lonely
All you got to do is look at me and hear what I say

We got it

Guys:
We got it

Dorothy:
I got you

Guys:
I got you

Dorothy:
We got it

Guys:
We got it

Dorothy:
We got it

All:
Together we do

Cowardly Lion:
I can conquer the mountains

Dorothy, Scarecrow, and Tin Man:
Together we do

Scarecrow:
Swim the deepest sea

Dorothy, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion:
Together we do

Tin Man:
There ain’t nothing I can’t do as long as you’re with me

All:
Together, together


Scarecrow:
Oh yeah, oh yeah!

All:
Together, together

Dorothy:
Oh yeah, oh yeah!

All:
Together, together
Together we do!
