[Verse 2:]
[Mary J. Blige:]
Wake everybody no more sleeping in bed
No more backwards thinkin time for thinkin ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it use to be
There? S so much hatetred war and poverty
[Monica:]
Wake up all the teachers timing for teaching new ways
Maybe they'll listen to what you say
Cuz there the ones who's coming up the worlds are in there hands
When you teach the children teach them the very best you can
[Eve:]
Bring peace do we mean it
Can you feel it when we scream it out loud do you believe that we need it
Do you believe that it could get right?
Do you believe that the children of the world deserve a good life?
Well if you do it's time to wake up your mind
We can make it betta and I know it could take some time
But we gotta start somewhere
How bout from you and me
From us it goes to other then we can have our unity
[Musiq:]
Wake all the doctors make the old people well
They? Re the ones who suffer and catch all the hell
But they don't have so very long before the judgment day
So won't you make them happy before they pass away?
[Ashanti:]
Wake up all the builders? Time to build a new land
I know we can do it long as we lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it our mind
Make sure the things work out
[Ashanti & Faith:]
Cuz they do it all the time
[Fabolous:]
I ain't here to take up yall time
I came to shake up yall mind its every bodies wake up call time
I can't sleep to long why they do the people wrong
Let? S clean the world up before they sweep you gone
This is real talk so you can peak through songs
So when you feel weak these words will keep you strong
And help make a change for the betta
It? S hard for one to do it but we can make some changes together
[Everybody:]
The world won't get no better (get no better)
If we just let it be (let it be)
The world won't get no better we gotta change it yeah you and me
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be (let it be, let it be, let it be)
The won't get no better we gotta change it yeah you and me
[Jadakiss:]
Set a goal put a plan up here we gotta stand up here
Give thanks to the man up stairs
Put the egos and the prides to the side regardless
And just be role models, parents, and artists
We can make a change or make it the hardest
If you gone make a baby you should make it the smartest
Letem know good from bad right from wrong
How to roll wit the punches as life goes on
And the stress won't take toll if you don't sweat it
World won't get no betta if we don't let it
Let the negative energy ride
Keep hope alive it bout time we open our eyes
[Jahiem:]
Wake everybody no more sleeping in bed
No more backwards thinkin time for thinkin ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it use to be
There? S so much hatetred war and poverty
[Missy Elliot:]
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Yup well yall besta vote
I don't care about the guns you told
Listen to me like you listen to fernheit 911
Ain? T no time for the second guess
The words I speak (Wake up)
The ones who sleep leave the ships fix your mouth to teach
Mcs teach the kids what? S peace
They don't have to worry bout the police
We make them risk so they don't have to the
Every artist here on this track (oh)
Will make a change for young kats (oh)
This is for everyone white or black
You betta go and vote and get up off yo back
[Everybody:]
Wake up everybody on more sleepin (as life rolls on lift your head lift your voice up)
Wake up everybody on more sleepin (you see the power of the people have the choice to reunite love)
Wake up everybody on more sleepin (not a choice it's a gift of people have to fight for)
Wake up everybody time for thinkin
Wake up everybody no more sleepin (take the opportunity)
Wake up everybody no more sleepin (your responsibility yeah)
Wake up everybody no more sleepin (your voice has to be heard)
Wake up everybody time for thinkin (save the world, save the world)
Wake up everybody no more sleepin
Wake up everybody no more sleepin
Wake up everybody no more sleepin
Wake up everybody time for thinking
