Get up, stand up,
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights! (3x)
Get up, stand up: don't give up the fight!

Preacherman, 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!

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
Lute pelos seus direitos

Jah!

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! )
