Lyrics Wake Up Everybody

Wake up everybody no more sleeping in bed
No more backward thinking time for thinking ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it used to be
There is so much hatred war and poverty, woah
Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to what you have to say
They're the ones who's coming up and the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach them 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, yeah 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
They don't have so very long before the Judgement Day
So won't you 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 mind
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, yeah just you and me, yeah, yeah
Change it, yeah just you and me
Change it, yeah can't do it alone
Can't do it alone, yeah, yeah
Wake up everybody need a little help you need a little help
Need some help, y'all change the world
World it used to be
