Get Up Stand Up lyrics

Get up stand up, stand up for your right
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight

Preacher man dont tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you dont know
What life is really worth
Its not all that glitters is gold
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light
Stand up for your right

Get up stand up, stand up for your right
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight

Most people think
Great God will come from the sky
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high
But if you knew what life is worth
You could look for yours on earth
And now youve seen the light
Stand up for your rights

Get up stand up, stand up for your right
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight

Were sick and tired of your easing kissing
Gone to die and go to heaven in jesus name
We know and we understand
Almighty God is a living man
You can fool some people sometimes
But you cant fool all the people all the time
And weve seen the light
Were gonna stand up for our rights
