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

Preacher man, 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)

We sick an' 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
[Unverified]

Don't give up the fight
(Get up, stand up)
Get up, stand up
[Unverified]
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up

Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
