Know what you're getting high on, how much you're getting by on
Everything you afraid of, well it ain't no thing
What about your future when you drown in that past
Can't talk to your father 'cause he can't understand your ass

Why don't you get yourself up off the couch?
One time, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light

He got no business since I swear
Got no fashion sense, got no hair
Can't make fun of him 'cause he ain't no fun
Gotta sleep with the shade down, can't have no sun

Why don't you get yourself up off the couch?
One time, switch on the light, get off the couch
Switch on the light, switch on the light

Why don't you get up off the couch?
Switch on the light, good God Almighty

Now life jumped up and smacked him right between the eyes
Just like a feline he got eight more tries
Just do what he want to, just enough to get by
Hey, what you afraid of man, it's just the light

Why don't you get yourself up off the couch?
One time and switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light

Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, get yourself up
Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light

Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light
Switch on the light, switch on the light
