Wake Up Everybody (Part 1)

In the style of

Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes

Lyrics

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

ho ho
wake up
all the teachers
time to teach
a new way

maybe then
they'll listen
to what
ya 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
just you and me

wake up
all the doctors
make the
old people well
they're the ones
who suffer
and who
catch all the hell

but they don't have
so very long
before their
judgement day
so won't ya
make them happy
before they
pass away

wake up
all the builders
time to build
a new land
i know we could 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
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
just you and me

yeah
change it yeah
just you and me
change it yeah
can't do it alone
need some help y'all
can't do it alone
yeah

wake up
everybody ha
wake up
everybody

need a little help y'all
yes i do
need a little help
need some help y'all
change the world
what it used to be
yeah
