The Truth In His Lyrics

The truth in his lyrics are so poignant for this time we’re living in, more now than ever. Sit and marinate on these lyrics while the state of our humanity flashes through your mind. Bob Marley was waking people up to truth and they just weren’t havin’ it. They tried to snuff the message but, it’s too late! Thanks to Bob Marley and others, we’re getting up, standing up for our right.

Get Up Stand Up

[Intro: The Wallers]
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight

[Verse 1: Bob Marley]
Preacher man don’t tell me heaven is under the earth
I know you don’t know what life is really worth
Is not all that glitters in gold and
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light, aay
Stand up for your right. Come on

[Chorus: The Wallers and Bob Marley]
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight

Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight

[Verse 2: Bob Marley]
Most people think great God will come from the sky
Take away everything, and make everybody feel high

But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth

And now you see the light
You stand up for your right, yeah

[Chorus: The Wallers]
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight

[Bridge: The Wallers and Bridge]
Get Up, Stand Up. Life is your right
So we can’t give up the fight
Stand up for your right, Lord, Lord
Get Up, Stand Up. Keep on struggling on
Don’t give up the fight

[Verse 3: Bob Marley]
We’re sick and tired of your ism and skism game
Die and go to heaven in Jesus’ name, Lord
We know when we understand
Almighty God is a living man

You can fool some people sometimes
But you can’t fool all the people all the time

So now we see the light
We going to stand up for our right

So you’d better…

[Chorus: The Wallers]
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight
Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right
Get Up, Stand Up, don’t give up the fight
