Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed
No more backward thinkin' time for thinkin' ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it used to be
There's so much hatred war and poverty

Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to whatcha have to say
'Cause they're the ones who's coming up and the world is in their hands
When you teach the children teach 'em the very best you can

The world won't get no better
If we just let it be
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it yeah, just you and me

Wake up all the doctors make the old people well
They're the ones who suffer and who catch all the hell
But they don't have so very long before the judgment day
So won'tcha make them happy before they pass away?

Wake up all the builders time to build a new land
I know we could do it if we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it in our minds
Surely things will work out they do it every time

The world won't get no better
If we just let it be
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it yeah, just you and me

Change it yeah, just you and me
Change it yeah, can't do it alone, need some help y'all
Can't do it alone yeah
Wake up everybody, wake up everybody
Need a little help y'all, need a little help
Need some y'all to change the world from what it used to be
