Momma want some more Obama in me the hood want PAC hip hop wanna see the
Common in me. And since this a senseless contradiction I end up a misfit tryina fit In. This ends when I stand up and see the hands of the standard: holy is
The lamb huh(holy is the lamb) Now we holding you to man up cause we were made
In his image start looking at what you came from. 

Right after Adam every atom in our anatomy had to make adamant after what
Adonai is against. Let me take you back to the tree in Eden, if you read it you'll see that eve was deceived but Adam is the one who let it in.(Man up) Standing Leading no, we ain't leading we (Bump that) Basically little boys with
Muscles and a mustache! The femininity, we need a remedy, the God-Man, a
100 percent (strength) masculinity

Trip Lee:
Where the men at, seems like they all lost, none of them are on the scene,
Seems like they died off. They extinct but my dream is to rise up, we
Chasing the prize of the King the divine boss, but we fell away, now we
UnGodly  we lose and we really got the blues like Navi, I wanna celebrate the dudes that's beside me fellas lets elevate we through with the lobby

Go ahead I say boy Get your shine on. and if a sucker try to block you get your 9 home and
What I heard you gotta do to be a man now, stand up for yourself so I took
It in my hands now. And that's the problem man we busy trying to solve it
All the while we walking dead man somebody bring the coffin, voice drop
Peach fuzz now you think that your a man cause you feeling yourself you
Need to man up!  

Sho Baraka:
Sex and models, and tipping bottles back a pile of excuses right next to
Your bottle caps. A rolodex filled with names that you aim to
Please next to the stack of money, building up a heart of greed. Ice on his
Neck give the jokers a cold shoulder, you drunk off pride plus you loving
The hangover. You gotta whole lotta stuff that won't amount to gain life
Will never make sense cause you never made change

You got it Twisted sick like a fever, little man live to stack dough
Keebler. Man up! Get up out of the treehouse leave the cookies alone it's
Time to eat meat now. Trying to show you a new way to live now, no charge
You can call it a freestyle. without Christ you know how your man is, you
A boy in a mans body like Tom Hanks in BIG.

Andy Mineo:
Being a man got nothing to do with age. You can be a boy till the day you
Lay in your grave. None of us behave like the image of who were made, cause
We've fallen away it's better known as depraved. Running from
Responsibility really we crave the easy way out of places that call us to
Pull our weight. Man there going through everyday decisions are made,
Responding to the call God's giving em from the...

Man Up!
Let the process begin, separate the boys from the men
Man Up!
It-it-it don't matter how you started, partner, it's about how you end
Man Up!
Jesus is the model follow us we gon' follow him
Man Up!  
We-we the last of a dying breed it's time that we

    Maturity comes with acceptance of responsibility and not with age. We men not by what we feel but what from god wants us to be. There is a difference between being a man and being a male.

    As men we are called to rise above the desires of this world. One man showed us all up. That man was jesus. Don't look at the world! Look at christ! Like him we as men we are called to sacrifice, to be courageous, to be disciplined and become a man or die trying! Man up!

    116 clique is calling christian men to live in god's image of masculinity, not the world's that only cares about sex and muscles. We are called to be bigger than that, instead being about honor and integrity. Overall great song. Should be on the ipod of every christian guy.

    Not only is it about how we need to man up and accept our responsibilities, but its also about respecting women and helping them embrace their femininity. Women are so self-conscious because "boys" treat them like objects. We need to man up and treat women with the respect that they deserve.

    The meaning is to take a stand, and lead those who know whats up and find those who don't. The point is to quit doin foolish things and rise against them and face our problems. It's time that we man up!
