Every break, every Sunday
I hope that you know
Sometimes it has to rain
When you see the clouds coming
Get yourself ready
You gotta prepare for change

Is it wrong, is it right?
You get rid of this light
From fear and kind of stench
My heart's beating faster
And faster and faster
I'm finally batting again

Mama, I'm sorry
I didn't mean to cause you pain
Everything's okay now
And today's a better day

(Stand up, stand up)
So stand up, stand up
(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, pick yourself up, yeah
(Stand up, stand up)
Pick yourself up, yeah

(You gotta stand up, stand up)
Stand up, hands up
(Stand up, stand up)
Pick yourself up, yeah
(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, stand up
Come on now and pick yourself up, yeah

Well, it's a bad situation
The world is hatin'
And, baby, you're not alone
'Cause you can count on your mother
Your sister, your brother
Hold you down and keep you goin'

Now when the time is right
We'll see the light
Is shining from up above
It'll guide the way
Just map the day
And, everybody, express some love

Oh, yeah, mama, I'm sorry
I didn't mean to cause you pain
And everything's okay now
And today's a better day

(Stand up, stand up)
So stand up, stand up
(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, stand up, pick yourself up, yeah

(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, stand up
(Pick yourself up, yeah)
Pick yourself up, yeah

(You gotta stand up, stand up)
Stand up, stand up
(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, stand up
(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, hands up

I saw a rainbow for real, ooh, ooh, ooh, baby
Gonna get to the end of it, ohh, ooh, ooh
Start now, make a real revolution, please stand up
We are getting down, now we are getting down
Ooh, yeah, we are getting down
Get down

Mama, I'm sorry
(Stand up, stand up)
Yeah, I didn't mean to cause you pain
(Stand up, stand up)

(Stand up, stand up)
I know we're out of the pain now
Stand up, stand up
(Pick yourself up)

(You gotta stand up, stand up)
Ohh, oh, oh, oh
(Stand up, stand up)
Yeah, we're getting down

(Stand up, stand up)
Stand up, oh, yeah
Pick yourself up, yeah
Pick yourself up, yeah

(Stand up, stand up)
(Stand up, stand up)
(Stand up, stand up)
Pick yourself up, yeah
