Let
Wilbert Harrison Lyrics


Together we'll stand
Divided we'll fall
Come on now people
Let's get on the ball
And work together
Come on, come on
Let's work together
(Now now people)
Because together we will stand
Every boy, every girl and man
People, when things go wrong
As they sometimes will
And the road you travel
It stays all uphill
Let's work together
Come on, come on
Let's work together
You know together we will stand
Every boy, girl, woman and man
Oh well now, two or three minutes
Two or three hours
What does it matter now
In this life of ours
Let's work together
Come on, come on
Let's work together
(Now now people)
Because together we will stand
Every boy, every woman and man
Come on, let's work together...
Well now, make someone happy
Make someone smile
Let's all work together
And make life worthwhile
Let's work together
Come on, come on
Let's work together
(Now now people)
Because together we will stand
Every boy, girl, woman and man
Oh well now, come on you people
Walk hand in hand
Let's make this world of ours
A good place to stand
And work together
Come on, come on
Let's work together
(Now now people)
Because together we will stand
Every boy, girl, woman and man
Well now together we will stand
Every boy, girl, woman and man

Instead of arguing 'this is better than that' and dissing other versions, try showing a bit of musical maturity and appreciate that other musicians have interpreted the song their way. Yes this is the original recorded on primitive equipment ... and that's how it sounds ... raw, earthy and beautiful. Just be thankful someone took the time to upload it...thanks Hankgwe

No. This is not the original. Wilbert originally wrote and recorded "Let's Stick Together", about trying to save a relationship. Canned Heat rewrote the lyrics but gave Wilbert credit for the music. This is him covering the Canned Heat version. Your point about arguing in the comments section is good, but it is not the original version of the song.

Peter Short

WELL said...This sounds like it was recorded at a Black back yard barbeque in 1950s...Old brothers with REAL soul...ALL other versions sound like cheap $ driven imitations compared to purity of this original...

Clark Ditter

Joe,
What you are saying makes sense, but I have a query.

According to Wikipedia this is not his original version, but is a 1969 re-working of the original song "Let's Stick Together" which is also available on YouTube (the other one has a yellow label).

According to Wikipedia, the other one, "Let's stick together" is the 1962 original, but it doesn't sound older to my ears. Bryan Ferry covered this version, whereas Status Quo covered "work together", which seems more guitar-ish.

Can you shed any light?

@lordXAVIJAANBJERGNOG , thanks 👍🇨🇦

Canned Heat definatley propelled this tune 10 light years ahead in production, melodic beauty, and quality. Creedence Clearwater had that same talent, and made tunes to the effect that it should of been original and their own in the final product. Lets not 'overtip' our hat to these yesterdecade blues guys.

A fantastic and great rendition by Wilbert give him some credit people, he wrote the bloody song.

@Thomas Beattie yes he was a singer. He sang the classic "Kansas City". (I'm going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come...)
