Get Up Stand Up
Bob Marley & The Wailers Lyrics


Ey, 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!

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
Half the story has never been told
And now you see the light
You stand up for your 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 see, most people think
Great God will come from the sky
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you see the light
You stand up for your 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!

We sick an' tired of your 'ism-schism game
Dyin', goin' to heaven in-a Jesus' name, Lord
We know when we understand
Almighty God is a living man
You can fool some people sometimes
But you couldn't fool all the people all the time
And now we see the light
You stand up for your 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!
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight

Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight
Don't give up the fight

I say now (don't give up the fight) whooa-oh, ooh-oh
Whooa-oh, ooh-oh
Whooa-oh, ooh-oh
Whooa-oh, ooh-oh

So we won't give up the fight
So we won't give up the fight

So we won't give up the fight
So we won't give up the fight
So we won't give up the fight
So we won't give up the fight

You see, most people think
Great God will come from the sky
Take away everything
Make everybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you see the light
You stand up for your rights

Oh, yo (oh, yo)
Oh, yo-yo-yo (oh, yo-yo-yo)
Oh, yo (oh, yo)
Oh, yo-yo-yo (oh, yo-yo-yo)

Stand up for your rights!
Stand up for your rights!
Stand up for your rights!
Stand up for your rights!
Stand up for your rights!

TRADUCTION EN FR
Debout, lève-toi ! Bats-toi pour tes droits !
Debout, lève-toi ! Bats-toi pour tes droits !
Debout, lève-toi ! Bats-toi pour tes droits !
Debout, lève-toi ! N’abandonne pas le combat !
Prédicateur, ne me dis pas
Que le paradis est sous terre
Je sais que tu ne connais pas
La vraie valeur de la vie
Tout ce qui brille n’est pas or
Et la moitié de l’Histoire
N'a jamais été racontée
Maintenant que t’y vois clair
Bats-toi pour tes droits !
Allez ! Debout, lève-toi ! Bats-toi pour tes droits !
Debout, lève-toi ! N’abandonne pas le combat !
La plupart des gens pensent
Qu'un grand dieu viendra des cieux
Qu’il ôtera tout
Et rendra tout le monde heureux
Mais si tu connais la valeur de la vie
Tu exigerais ta part sur terre
Maintenant que t’y vois clair
Bats-toi pour tes droits ! (Jah ! Jah ! Jah !)
Debout, lève-toi ! (Tu as le droit de vivre)
Bats-toi pour tes droits ! (Alors tu ne peux pas baisser les bras)
Debout, lève-toi ! (Seigneur ! Seigneur !)
N’abandonne pas le combat ! (Ouais, continue le combat !)
On en a marre de votre petit jeu d‘ismes et de schismes :
Aller mourir au paradis au nom de Jésus, Seigneur !
On sait et on finit par comprendre
Que Dieu Tout-Puissant est un homme vivant
Vous pouvez duper certains quelques fois
Mais vous ne pouvez pas duper tout le monde à la fois
Maintenant qu’on y voit clair
On va se battre pour nos droits !
Debout, levons-nous !
Battons-nous pour nos droits !
N’abandonnons pas le combat !
Debout, levons-nous !
Battons-nous pour nos droits !
N’abandonnons pas le combat !

Bob spoke to freedom against a common oppressor that many people were and still are blind to. So many are seeing the light - what’s left but to stand up for our rights. Truth, freedom, love, unity and bliss. Sending all of you so much love!
