Get Up, Stand Up
Toots & The Maytals
Album: Pass The Pipe

Get up now! Get up, stand up now!
Get up now!
Get up now! Get up, stand up now!
Get up now! Get up, stand up now!

Get up, stand up.
I said get up, stand up.
Time is going.
Gonna see my love.
My love is going.

Get ready, brother.
Get ready, sister.
Time is going, sister.
Gonna see my love.
My love is flowing.

Get on the morning train
for the evening train will be too late.
Get on the morning train
for the evening train will be too late.

That won't help. Waiting on the evening train.
That won't help. Waiting and waiting.
That won't help.

Sitting in the broiling sun.
Waiting for the day to come.
Wishing for the night to come.

That won't help, brother. Sitting in the broiling sun.
That won't help, sister. Wishing for the night to come.
That won't help.

Get up now!
Get up now!
Get up now! Get up, stand up now!

Sitting inside a store (that won't help).
Crying every day for more (that won't help).
Sitting inside a store.
Crying every day for more.
But that won't help. Crying every day for more.
That won't help.

Come on!
Come on!
Come on!

Fire burning in your soul.
(Wishing for the night to come, that won't help.)
Burning out of control.
Fire burning in your soul.
(Get up now! Get up now! Get up, stand up now!)
Burning out of control.
That won't help.
That won't help.
No!
That won't help.
That won't help.
That won't help.

Get up now!
Get up! Get up now!
Come on!
Come up!
Come up!
Get up now!
Get up now!

Get up, stand up!
Crying everyday for more. That won't help.
Fire burning in your soul.
Sitting inside a store. That won't help.
Burning out of control.
Fire burning in your soul.
Get up! Get up!
Burning out of control.
Get up, stand up now!
Come on!
Come on!
Come on!
Come on!

Get ready, brother.
I said time is going, brother.
And see my love, is flowing.
Time is going now.
I know ???
??? fire burning!
Time is going and the wheels turning.
