LYRICS

[Wyclef Jean] Ay! Wake up, wake up! You’ve got the power (x2) My people in the east shore, you gotta wake up Midwest, dirty south, yo, you gotta stand up All my homies in the west, yo, you gotta wake up Wake up, wake up (x9) [Mary J. Blige] Wake up everybody, no more sleeping in bed No more backwards 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 [Monica] Wake up all the teachers, time to teach a new way Maybe then they’ll listen to what you have to say [Claudette Ortiz] Cause they’re the one’s who coming up The world is in their hands When you teach the children Teach them the better questions you can [Eve] Uh… scream “peace,” do we mean it? Can you feel it when we scream it out loud? Do you believe that we need it? Do you believe that it could get right? Do you believe That the children of the world deserve a good life? Well, if you do, it’s time to wake up your mind We can make it better and I know it might take some time But we gotta start somewhere How about with you and me? From us it goes to others Then we’ll have our unity [Musiq Soulchild] 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 Judgment Day So won’t you make them happy before they pass away [Ashanti] 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 [Faith Evans] ‘Cause they do it every time [Fabolous] I ain’t here to take up y’all time I came to shake up y’all mind It’s everybody’s wake up call time I can’t sleep too long While they do the people wrong Let’s clean the world up Before they sweep through, gone This is real talk you can peep through songs So when you feel weak These words will keep you strong And help make a change for the better It’s hard one to do it But make can make some changes together (2x) [Chorus:] 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 [Ad-libs: Brandy] Hey, yeah, oh Get no better Let it be Oh, we gotta change it yeah Oh, won’t get no better Let it be, let it be, let it be Better [Jadakiss] Set a goal for the plan up here We gotta stand up here Give thanks to The Man Upstairs Put the egos and the pride to the side regardless And just be role models, parents, artists We can make a change And we can make it the hardest If you gon’ make a baby You should make him the smartest Let him know good and bad, right from wrong How to roll with the punches when life moves on The stress won’t take toll if you don’t sweat it World won’t get no better if we don’t let it Let the negative energy ride Keep hope alive It’s about time that we open our eyes Wake up [Jaheim] Wake up everybody, no more sleeping in bed No more backwards 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 (Wake up! Wake up!) [Missy Elliott] Yup, we all best to vote I don’t care about the guns you tote Listen to me like you listened to Fahrenheit 9/11 Ain’t no time for the second guessing The words I speak? Wake up the ones who sleep The leaderships? Fix your mouth to teach Emcees? Teach the kids what’s peace They don’t have to worry about the police We make them rich so they don’t have to thief Every artist here on this track Will make a change here for young cats This is for everybody white or black You better go and vote And get up off your back (3x) [Vamp:] Wake up everybody, no more sleeping (x3) Wake up everybody, time for thinking, thinking
