Get Up Stand Up Lyrics – Bob Marley

Get Up Stand Up Lyrics

Get up stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up: don’t give up the fight!

Preacher man don’t tell me
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth.
It’s not all that glitters is gold;
‘Alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light eh!
Stand up for your rights. Come on!

Get up stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up: don’t give up the fight!
Get up stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up: don’t give up the fight!

Most people think
Great god will come from the skies
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high.
But if you know what life is worth
You will look for yours on earth:
And now you see the light
You stand up for your rights. Jah!

Get up stand up! (jah jah!)
Stand up for your rights! (oh-hoo!)
Get up stand up! (get up stand up!)
Don’t give up the fight! (life is your right!)
Get up stand up! (so we can’t give up the fight!)
Stand up for your rights! (lord lord!)
Get up stand up! (keep on struggling on!)
Don’t give up the fight! (yeah!)

We sick an’ tired of-a your ism-skism game –
Dyin’ ‘n’ goin’ to heaven in-a Jesus’ name lord.
We know when we understand:
Almighty god is a living man.
You can fool some people sometimes
But you can’t fool all the people all the time.
So now we see the light (what you gonna do?)
We gonna stand up for our rights! (yeah yeah yeah!)

So you better:
Get up stand up! (in the morning! Git it up!)
Stand up for your rights! (stand up for our rights!)
Get up stand up!
Don’t give up the fight! (don’t give it up don’t give it up!)
Get up stand up! (get up stand up!)
Stand up for your rights! (get up stand up!)
Get up stand up! (…)
Don’t give up the fight! (get up stand up!)
Get up stand up! (…)
Stand up for your rights!
Get up stand up!
Don’t give up the fight! /fadeout/
