Oooooo la di dumb (dum)
Da da dumb (dum)da da dumb dumb dumb
La di dumb da da dumb da da dumb dumb

Six a.m. getting out of bed again
Can't get back in 'cause sleep ain't gonna pay the rent
Ohh day to day they got you working like a slave
Taking credit for the work you gave
And stealing your raise but I...

Chorus
I know you're down but when you gon get up
I see you're down but when you gon get up
(Repeat)

People try to pull the wool over your eyes
Don't know why they want to profit from your demise
Oooo they lie to cover up how weak they are inside
Oh baby baby don't you cry
All you got's your pride so I I I I

Chorus
I see you're down

(Mos Def)
Hey now I'm going for mine
Said even though they trying to hold me down
You know I'm a shine
Put your hurdles up but still I'm hopping over the nine
I stay ahead of the race because I'm setting the pace
Hop on my feet I caught a ? like I'm a federal case
Cause there's incredible stakes
Brooklyn incredible place for all the seminal waste
Who make their memorable case
Who got the measure and grace
Amongst the pressure and snakes
Sometimes I'm still to stay(?) competitive
Do whatever it takes
To all my folk who understand that NYC is the way
For overseas or anywhere inside the 50 you stay
So if you really know the really really really real-ly
Wave your hands in the space
It's time to build and create
Me and my squad is on the job
So that the children's is straight
To understand the higher plan
And to expand my estates
I can't give hardly give up my motivation a must
Amel Larrieux and M-O-S'll make the people GET UP!

(Amel)
I want you to get get up
I want you to get get up
I want you to get get up
Not down not with a frown

(Amel scatting)

(Amel)
After all the work you gave
Stealing your raise
Stealing your raise
Steal-ing your raise
