John Legend]
Wake up everybody
No more sleepin' in bed
No more backward thinkin'
Time for thinkin' ahead

The world has changed
So very much
From what it used to be
There is so much hatred
War and poverty, whoa, oh

[Melanie Fiona]
Wake up, all the teachers
Time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen
To what'cha have to say

'Cause they're the ones who's coming up
And the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach 'em the very best you can

[Chorus - John Legend & Melanie Fiona]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be, na, na, na
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

[John Legend]
Wake up, all the doctors
Make the old people well
They're the ones who suffer
And who catch all the hell

But they don't have so very long
Before the Judgment Day
So wont'cha make them happy
Before they pass away

[Melanie Fiona]
Wake up, all the builders
Time to build a new land
I know we can do it
If we all lend a hand

The only thing we have to do
Is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out
'Cause they do every time

[Chorus - John Legend & Melanie Fiona]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be, na, na, na
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

[Bridge Rap - Common]
It's the God hour, the morning I wake up,
Just for the breath of life I thank my maker,
My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers,
My mind builded on skyscrapers and acres,
He said take us back to where we belong,
I try to write a song as sweet as the Psalms,
Though I am the type to bear arms and wear my heart on my sleeve,
Even when I fell in God I believe,
We the days at,
Weave through the maze and the season so amazing,
Feed them and raise them,
Seasons are asian,
Earthquakes, wars and rumors,
I want us to get by but we more then consumers,
We more than shooters,
More than looters,
Created in his image,
So God live through us,
And even in his generation living through computers
On love, love, love can reboot us

[Outro]
Wake up, everybody
Wake up, everybody
Need a little help, y'all
Yes I do, need a little help

Need a little help, y'all ay
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
