Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Look how long they brought us down here
Have us in bondage right through these years
Fussing and fighting among ourselves
Living down here it's like living in hell, I say

Get up and fight for your right my brothers
Get up and fight for your right my sisters

Took us away, yeah, from civilization
Brought us to slave in their plantation
Fussing and fighting amongs our brethrens
Living down here, man, it's worse to than hell, I say yes

Get up and fight for your right my brothers
Get up and fight for your right my sisters

Whoa-oh, yes
Whoa-oh, yes

Took us away from civilization
Brought us to slave in their plantation
Fussing and fighting among ourselves, yes
Living down here it's like living in hell, I say yes

Get up and fight for your right my brothers
Get up and fight for your right my sisters

Look how long they brought us down here
Have us in bondage right through these years
Fussing and fighting among ourselves, yes
Living down here it's like living in hell, I say

Get up and fight for your right my brothers
Get up and fight for your right my sisters
