Cheer up my brothers, cheer up my sisters
Cheer up my momma too, lord
Cheer up my father, let me say
I know it won't be long
That change has got to come
That change has got to come
And I know that it won't be long
We've been down in captivity [captivity] so long, so long
If we unite then we will be free [we will be free]
so strong, so strong, come I want you to
Cheer up my [brothers] my sisters
[cheer up my sisters] let me say
Cheer up my my my momma too, lord
Cheer up my father

Let me say, we've been down in captivity [captivity]
so long, so long
We unite we will be free [we will be free]
so strong, so strong
Cheer up my my my my my my brother
[cheer up my sister] cheer up my sisters
[cheer up my momma] my momma too lord
[cheer up my] my father
And I, I, I
