Everybody stand up, get down
Move when I tell you to, so move now

Gather the people
Move to a new place
Gather the people
Do it in a few days
Gather the people
Find out the new ways
To start a new phase
In a few days
In a new place

Crawled through the desert on naked feet
A mile long line marching the beat
Escaped centuries of slavery
Followed the shepherd like herds of sheep
To a land sitting on the beach
Tried to live for once peacefully
Till the Romans grew geographically
Stole their land but not their dignity

Everybody stand up, get down
Move when I tell you to, so move now

Gather the people
Move to a new place
Gather the people
Do it in a few days
Gather the people
Find out the new ways
To start a new phase
In a few days
In a new place

Welcome to Europe come on in
One ignorant inquisition
The Spanish killed those who weren't Christian
The pogroms were an imposition
Forced out by the angry Russians
The Germans killed twelve million by crushing
The UN sent them back where they came from
To fight outnumbered sixty to one for Zion

Everybody stand up, get down
Move when I tell you to, so move now

Arafat sending boy to blow up his own face
Begging to not die in vain
Back in 1967, 5735
In the place near heaven
A country a third the size of LA
Conquered four armies in six days
Another widow thrown to her knees
What will it take to live in peace?

Everybody stand up, get down
Move when I tell you to, so move now

Gather your people
Move to a new place
Gather your people
Do it in a few days
Gather your people
Find out the new ways
To start a new phase
In a few days
In a new place

Everybody stand up
