Get Up Stand Up
by The Wailers

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 inna 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

NOT co written, but written by Peter Tosh, and the name of the band ISN'T 
'Bob Marley and the Wailers' it's 'The Wailers'. Putting Bob Marley's name in front was a marketing scheme, that contributed to Peter Tosh AND Bunny Wailer's departure.
Sadly their contribution to Reggae isn't widely understood, (Tosh taught the other two to play, and is thought to be responsible for putting the guitar on two and four... the sound most think of AS Reggae) and they have never gotten their proper's.

clumsiii

you feel better now? we listen. we heard. music is our facts and we love . look what happens when ism /schism has 40 years to think about it --- look THOMMY

Yeah, as much as I love Bob, the interpersonal stuff ruining bands is a damn shame. The Barrett brothers + Tosh + Bunny + Marley is one of the great sound-expanding combos of all time.

@young boy little couse Every album before Natty Dread, had been put out as The Wailers, and starting with Natty Dread, it became Bob Marley and the Wailers, as Tosh and Bunny had left. The original 1973 release of Catch a Fire was put out as The Wailers, not as Bob Marley and the Wailers. It was re released in 1974 and that's when they labeled it Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Pablo Pérez

@Sayeeda Hodo Yes, this song was released on that album, I don't think I ever said otherwise. Incidentally, Burnin was not, in fact, their first album.

Sayeeda Hodo

@Pablo Pérez The song here was released on the "Burnin" album in 1973 by The Wailers, the first album! What are you talking about?
