You've got to rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.

Now let your minds be strong (in this struggle).
And you can't be wrong (in a this struggle).
Cause if you miss you're gon' feel it (in this struggle).
You've got to learn to keep a secret (in a this struggle).
Dont get too ambitious (in this struggle).
Just serve your purpose (in a this struggle).
Please don't take no bribe (in this struggle).
My little I-dren just stay alive (in a this struggle).

Cause we've got to struggle, struggle, struggle!
Struggle for our human rights!
Struggle, struggle, struggle, struggle!
Don't give up the fight!
Struggle, struggle, struggle!
Struggle for your liberty!
Struggle, struggle, struggle, struggle!
Cause you've got your dignity!

Rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
You've got to rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.

You've got to stand as one (in this struggle).
For together we are strong (in a this struggle).
And divided we are defeated (in this struggle).
That's why we can't be separated (in a this struggle).
You've got to get involved (in this struggle).
Cause there's a problem to solve (in a this struggle).
Don't be no opportunist (in this struggle).
Don't you find yourself for racist (in a this struggle).

In this struggle! In a this struggle!
In this struggle! In a this struggle!
In this struggle! In a this struggle!
In this struggle! In a this struggle!

Oh what a glorious day!
When we are gonna wash all our sorrows away!

You've got to rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! And trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.
Rise up! Trample the dragon.
Get the dragon 'fore the dragon get you.

Now let your punches tell (in this struggle).
And give the dragon hell (in a this struggle).
Enlight the walls of Jericho (in this struggle).
Time and history shall tell (in a this struggle).
With one love (in this struggle).
One aim (in a this struggle).
One father (in this struggle).
One destiny (in a this struggle).
You've got to get involved (in this struggle).
Cause there is a problem to solve (in a this struggle).
Don't be no opportunist (in this struggle).
Don't you find yourself for racist (in a this struggle).

Get involved!

We've got to stand as one (in this struggle).
Cause together we are strong (in a this struggle).
And divided we are defeated (in this struggle).
That's why we can't be separated (in a this struggle).
Let your punches tell (in this struggle).
And give the dragon hell (in a this struggle).
Enlight the walls of Jericho (in this struggle).
Time and history shall tell (in a this struggle).
With one love (in this struggle).
One aim (in a this struggle).
Oh yes! One father (in this struggle).
One destiny (in a this struggle).
