​Get Up, Stand Up

This song is by The Wailers.

Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight

Preacher man don't tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you don't know
What life is really worth

It's not all them glitters is gold
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light
Stand up for your rights, come on

Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight

Most people think
Great God will come from the skies
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high

But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you've seen the light
You stand up for your rights

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
(Get up, stand up)
(Life is your right)
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
(So we can't give up the fight)
(Lord, Lord)
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
(Keep on struggling on, yeah)

We're sick and tired of your ism schism game
Die and go to Heaven in Jesus' name, Lord
We know when we understand
Almighty God is a living man

You can fool some people sometimes
But you can't fool all the people all the time
So now we see the light
We gonna stand up for our right, so you'd better

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up
