Lyrics
Get up stand up stand up for your rights.
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight (Rep.)

Preacher mall dont tell me
Heaven is under the earth
I know you dont know what life is really worth
Its not all that glitter is gold
And half the history has never been told
And now that the children have seen the light
They're gonna stand up for their rights

Get up stand up, stand up for your rights
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight. (rep.)

Pastor deacon we're tired a hearing
Great God gonna come from the sky
Taking away every living things
That's a whole bag of lies
Cause if you knew what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now that the children have seen the light.
They're gonna stand up for their rights.

Get up stand up, stand up for your rights.
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight (Rep.).

We're sick and tired of your conmen game
Dying and go to heaven in Lord Jesus name
We know and we've come to
Overstand that the creator is a Living One
You could have fooled some people sometime
But you can't fool all the people all the time
And now that the children have seen light
They're gonna stand up for their rights

Get up stand up stand up for your rights
Get up stand up, dont give up the fight. (Rep.)
