Rise up, rise upAnd take your placeMove to the head of the lineJoin the human raceNo more denyin’Open your eyes seeYou gotta right sure as you’re breathin’You got a right to be free!
You gotta right to feed your children And help ‘em grow up strongHow can they shape the future If they’re hungry all day longSo rise up...
You gotta a right to be angryAt a system that has failedTo honor all its peopleYou gotta right to be heardSo rise up...
