Vital Spot
Get Up, Stand Up
Peter Tosh
Album: Equal Rights

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.

You preacher man don't tell me
heaven is under the earth.
You are duppy and you don't know
what life is really worth.
It's not all that glitter is gold
and half the story has never been told.
So now we see the light
we gonna stand up for our rights.

Come on! Get up, stand up.
Brothers! Stand up for your rights.
Come on! Get up, stand up.
Sister! Don't give up the fight.
I'm begging you to. Get up, stand up.
Stand up for your rights.
Get up, stand up.
I say don't give up the fight.

Cause you know most people think
a great god will come from the skies.
And take away every little thing
and left everybody dry.
But if you know what life is worth
you would look for yours right here on earth.
And now we see the light
we gonna stand up for our rights.

Come on! Get up, stand up.
Don't make them push you 'round.
Stand up for your rights.
Come on brothers! Get up, stand up.
Be brave now. Don't give up the fight.
I say get up, stand up.
Stand up for your rights.
Don't let them hold you down.
Get up, stand up.
Don't give up the fight.

Sick and tired of this game of technology.
Humbly asking Jesus for His mercy.
We know, we know and we understand
almighty Jah is a living man.
You fool some people sometimes
but you can't fool all the people all the time.
And now we see the light
we gonna stand up for our rights.

Come on! Get up, stand up.
Stand up for your rights.
Come on our brothers!
Get up, stand up.
I say don't give up the fight.
I say get up, stand up.
Stand up for your rights.
Get up, stand up.
