Get up Stand Up
Peter Tosh Lyrics


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 a 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 your rights

Come on, get up, stand up, brother
Stand up for your rights
Come on, get up, stand up, sisters
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

'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
Then you would look for yours 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

We're 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 brothers, get up, stand up
I said, don't give up the fight

Isaid, get up, stand up
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up

O mais pesado do Reggae, ideologia foda, sons e letras monstras. Desde criança eu sou apaixonada de amor por esse homem. 🔥

Continuing our little tribute to Peter Tosh one day after the anniversary of his passing on September 11, 1987. It must have been difficult for Peter to come up with an album approaching the greatness of Legalize It, but with his second solo effort, Equal Rights (1978) he succeeded. As with Legalize It, there is not a weak track on the whole album. The backing band is superb---Al Anderson gtr Earl Lindo keyboards Robbie Skakespeare b and Sly Dunbar d. Bunny Wailer, who had already left the Wailers, sings background vocals. Dunbar has stated " Sly and Robbie's international career started when we toured with Peter Tosh in support of the Equal Rights album." Get Up Stand Up first appeared on the Wailers' Burnin' album with Bob singing lead and Peter taking one chorus. Here it's all Peter and he changes some of the lyrics. One of the most famous songs in the history of Jamaican music, this version is also outstanding . The opening song on Equal Rights.

Best version of this song without a doubt 🔥

old school reggae music is the best it use to be so uplifting talking about the struggles of oppression and love for black women unlike nowadays many so called reggae artists that promote nothing but negativity in their music drugs cars materialism women sex etc... I stick to the roots
