Lyrics:

(ChuckD first verse)
THIS SONG DON'T GIVE A DAMN
IF THE RHYMES DON'T FIT
IF THE DJ QUIT
THIS SONG
DON'T GIVE A DAMN
IF YOU CAN'T SING TO DANCE TO IT
CAN'T ROMANCE TO IT
THIS SONG AIN'T ARROGANT
IF YOU DON'T TRY IT
BUY IT
IF YOUR RADIO DENY IT
DON'T CARE BOUT WHAT WHO GOT
WHAT'S COOL ON TV
OR WHAT SPOTS HOT I FORGOT
I AIN'T MAD AT EVOLUTION
BUT I STAND FOR REVOLUTION
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
SOMEBODY STAND UP

GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP

(Brother Ali verse)
THIS TRACK AINT ASKING YOU A DAMN THING
NOT THE BRAND NAME BOTTLE WITH YOUR CHAMPAGNE
NOT WHERE YOU LAND YOUR PRIVATE AIRPLANE
HOW MANY BLOOD DIAMONDS SHINING IN THAT CHAIN?
HOW MUCH COMPROMISE IS TIED TO THAT FAME?
HOW MANY MORE TIMES WE GOTTA HEAR THAT LAME
LINE IM INSPIRING THEM
TO DO WHAT? ROLL BETTER WEED AND GET HIGHER THAN THEM ?
FEED THE NEEDY GREEDY ASS FIRE IN THEM?
BE THE SAME DAMN DOG BUT TO FINER WOMEN?
THEY GONNA TELL ME THAT IM PREACHING TO THE CHOIR THAN IM
SURE THEY RIGHT BUT IM TRYING TO LIGHT A FIRE IN THEM
CAUSE I WAS RAISED BY THE ENEMY
AND EVER SINCE THEN THATS BEEN MY IDENTITY
SO IM TRYING TO GIVE BACK WHATS WAS GIVEN ME
TRUTH TOLD DELIVERY IS MY TENDENCY
YOUTH FOLD TO THE SPIRIT OF MY ENERGY
BOTTOM OF MY FEET IS SOMETHING THAT YOULL NEVER SEE
THATS CAUSE IM STANDING SINGING THE ANTHEM
FIST ON MY HAND, AND A LIST OF DEMANDS AND
WHEN THEY HEAR THIS MIGHT PISS IN THEIR PANTS AND
TRY TO GET THE CHILDREN TO NOT LISTEN TO THE MAN
BUT THE MIGHTY PE IS WHAT BIRTHED ALI
SO WHAT YOU GONNA THINK COME AFTER ME?
CHUCK D


GET UP, STAND UP

(ChuckD second verse)
OCCUPY IF YOU DENIED
PROTEST SONGS CAUSE I SEE WRONG
MOST OF MY HEROES STILL DONT APPEAR ON NO STAMP
SO I RANT EVEN WHEN THEY SAY I CAN'T
(PAUSE)
I RISE AGAINST
RAGE AGAINST
HOPE I DONT END UP BEING THE SAME THING IM FIGHTING AGAINST
HENCE
I WINCE NEVER ON THE FENCE
SINCE THEY THINK THE MASSES POWERLESS
I AIN'T ON NOBODY'S POWER LIST
I BALL MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE
I RAISE MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE LIKE THIS
LIKE THIS

GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP


(ChuckD third verse)
GOT SO MUCH TO SHOUT ABOUT
WHAT THE 1% IS GETTIN OUT
RECESSION DEPRESSION DESPERATION DUE
NEVER HAVE SO MANY BEEN SCREWED BY SO FEW
CHEAPEST PRICE IS TO PAY ATTENTION
NO NEED TO DUMB DOWN TO WHAT I MENTION
NO NEED TO YOUNG DOWN HOW I MENTION
IN SPANISH PORTUGUESE ENGLISH FRENCH AND
NO SATISFACTION
LISTEN TO THE WORLD REACTION

GET UP, STAND UP,
