"Wake Up Everybody" was released in 1975 by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes and features the great Teddy Pendergrass on lead vocals. The song speaks to the importance of taking action to make the world a better place, and is as relevant and important now as it was when it was released.

Here are the lyrics to "Wake Up Everybody":

Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed
No more backward thinkin' time for thinkin' ahead
The world has changed so very much
From what it used to be so
there is so much hatred war an' poverty
Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to whatcha have to say
Cause they're the ones who's coming up and the world is in their hands
When you teach the children teach 'em the very best you can

The world won't get no better if we just let it be
The world won't get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me

Wake up all the doctors make the ol' people well
They're the ones who suffer an' who catch all the hell
But they don't have so very long before the Judgment Day
So won'tcha make them happy before they pass away
Wake up all the builders time to build a new land
I know we can do it if we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out they do it every time.

The world won't get no better if we just let it be
The world won't get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me

Much love and respect to you all,

Kevin Caruso
