West Indian Girl – Get Up lyrics

Say goodbye to everyone and leave it all behind
You know they tried to hold you down
And change your way of life
But no judge or Lord above can tell you what to do

Get up, get up

One day when we get away high upon that hill
You'll see we're all the same, no matter what we feel
There's a little good in everyone, everyone can shine

Get up, get up
You and I will rise above
You and I will shine on, into the blue

You know they won't believe unless it's on tv
And now we're saving ourselves
And all the people we love
Yeah, the people we love, come on

Get up, get up
You and I will rise above
You and I will shine on
