Thelma Houston – Wake Up Everybody lyrics
Everybody, everybody
I want you to listen to me for a little bit right here
I wanted you to read the newspapers this morning

Or did you see the evening news
As you were having dinner with your families last night?
Well, if you did then you must know that
This world is now in a whole lot of trouble

But I don't want you to get discouraged by that, no
Because I believe that there's a solution to all of this
Deep down within my soul
All we have to do is put are heads and hearts together

You gotta wake up everybody and no more sleeping in bed
And no more backward thinking, it's time for thinking, ahead
The world's changed so very much from what it used to be
There's so much hatred, war and poverty, oh yeah

Wake up all you teachers, you better teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to what you have to say

Because they are the ones
Who's coming up and the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
You better teach them the very best you can

The world won't get no better
If you just let it be, no no
The world won't get no better
You gotta change again, you and me

Wake up all you doctors, make the old people well
Because they're the ones who suffer a lot and catch all the hell
They don't hassle very long before their judgment day
Won't you make them happy before they pass away?

Wake up all you builders, it's time to build a new land
I know we can do it if we all lend a hand
Only thing we have to do is put it in our minds
And surely things will work out, they do it every time

The world won't get no better, oh no
If we just let it be
I said the world no no no
We gotta change it, you will and me

I want you to sing along with me
Come on

(Change, change, change, change)
Hey, hey, hey
(Change, change, change, change)
That's all you gotta do

(Change, change, change, change)
(Change, change, change, change)

No more sleeping in bed, come on
(Come on wake up)
We gotta change the world
Change the world, change the world

We gotta teach the children
We gotta teach them well

(We gotta change it, dear)
Yeah we do
(We gotta change it, dear)
'Cause the world won't get no better

(Till we change)
Oh yeah
(Till we change)
Come on now

Change, change, change
Change, change, change
Change, change, change
