    Lyrics

    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!

    Preacherman, don't tell me,
    Heaven is under the earth.
    I know you don't know
    What life is really worth.
    It's not all that glitters is gold;
    'Alf the story has never been told:
    So now you see the light, eh!
    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 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 rights! (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 rights! (Lord, Lord!)
    Get up, stand up! (Keep on struggling on!)
    Don't give up the fight! (Yeah!)

    Musikken tired of-a your ism-skism 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 rights! (Yeah, yeah, yeah!)

    So you better:
    Get up, stand up! (In the morning! Git it up!)
    Stand up for your rights! (Stand up for our rights!)
    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 rights! (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!
