Get Up Stand Up Lyrics

by Bob Marley & The Wailers

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don't give up the fight
Preacher man, don't tell me that Heaven is under the Earth
I know you don't know what life is really worth
Is that all that glitter is gold, half the story had never been told
So now you see the light, stand up for your right, come on
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
Most people think, Great God will come from the sky
Take away everything and make everybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on Earth
And now you see the light, you stand up for your rights, jah
Get up, stand up
(Jah, jah)
Stand up for your right
(Oh-hoo)
Get up, stand up
(Get up, stand up)
Don't give up the fight
(Life is your right)
Get up, stand up
(So we can't give up the fight)
Stand up for your right
(Lord, Lord)
Get up, stand up
(Keep on struggling on)
Don't give up the fight
(Yeah)
We sick an' tired of-a your ism-schism game
Dyin' n' goin' to heaven in-a 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
(What you gonna do?)
We gonna stand up for our right
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
So you better get up, stand up
(In the morning, git it up)
Stand up for your rights
(Stand up right now)
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
(Don't give it up, don't give it up)
Get up, stand up
(Get up, stand up)
Stand up for your right
(Get up, stand up)
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
(Get up, stand up)
Get up, stand up
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight
Get up, stand up
