Get up, stand up
Stand up for your rights
Get up, stand up
Don't give up the fight

Preacherman, don't tell me heaven is under the earth
I know that you don't know that heaven is here on earth
All that glitters is not gold, half the story has never been told
Now you see the light, stand up for your rights

What'd I say?

Oh yeah

Most people think the great God is up there in the skies
Take away everything and make everybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth, you'll find your heaven here on earth
So now you see the light, stand up for... that's what I say

Oh
Oh no no no
Well well well...
What we say?

We're sick and tired of your ism-ism game, dying and going to heaven in Jesus' name
We know, you understand, almighty God is a living man
You can fool some people sometime but you can't fool all the people all the time
So now you see the light, stand up... that's what I say

Oh yeah
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Don't give up the fight

That's what I say
No no no no....

Yeah yeah yeah
No no no

That's what, that's what...

That's what I'm asking you

Yeah yeah yeah
Whoa whoa whoa
No no no

I'm going to say
