Flat Earth Wake Up Everybody

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes 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’s so much hatred, war, and poverty, whoa, oh

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

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
But they don’t have so very long before their 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 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, yeah, just you and me (yeah, yeah)

Change it, yeah (change it, yeah)
Just you and me
Change it, yeah (change it, yeah)
Can’t do it alone (can’t do it alone)
Need some help, y’all (y’all)
Can’t do it alone (can’t do it alone)
Yeah (yeah)

Wake up, everybody, huh
Wake up, everybody
Need a little help, y’all (yes I do)
Need a little help (say it, boy)
Need some help, y’all (uh-huh)
To change the world
From what it used to be

Can’t do it alone
Can’t do it alone
Need some help, yeah
Need some help, yeah

Wake up, everybody
Get up, get up
Get up, get up
Wake up, come on, come on

Wake up, everybody
Teach a new way
Maybe then they’ll listen
To what you have to say

Wake up, everybody
No more sleepin’ in bed
No more backward thinkin’
Time for thinkin’ ahead
Come on

Wake up, everybody
I’m talkin’ about the dope pusher
Stop pushin’ that dope
Dope users
Stop usin’ the dope

Wake up, yeah

False lyin’
False preachin’
False teachin’
Wake up, y’all
Come on

Start preachin’ what you teach
Teach the truth
Wake up, preachers

Help the poor people
Help the babies

What race, creed or color
Everybody we need each other

Wake up, everybody

Wake up, everybody

Wake up, everybody
No more sleepin’ in bed
No more backward thinkin’
Time for thinkin’ ahead

Teach the children
Teach the babies
Teach the children
