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 There is so much hatred war and poverty Oh yeah
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 Oh yeah
[Chorus] 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 minds Surely things will work out cause they do 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.
It's the God hour The morning I wake up Just for the breath of life I thank my maker My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers My mom buidin' on skyscrapers and acres He said take us back to where we belong I try to write a song As sweet as the Psalms Though I'm the type to bare arms And wear my heart on my sleeve Even when I fell in God I believe Read the days that weave through the maze The seasons so amazing Feed them and raised them Seasons are aging Earthquakes, wars, and rumors I want us to get by but We're more than consumers We more than shooters, more than looters Created in this image so God live through us And even in this generation, living through computers Only love love love can reboot us
Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed Wake up, everybody Need a little help, Can't do it alone Need a little help y'all C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon Need a little help, y'all Can't do it alone Need a little help, y'all Can't do it alone Oh, wake up everybody Wake up everybody Wake up everybody
