Wake Up Everybody - John Legend/The Roots/Common/Melanie Fiona

Written by:Victor Carstarphen/Gene McFadden/John Whitehead

 

John Legend:

 

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

Oh oh oh yeah yeah

Melanie Fiona:

 

Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way

 

Maybe then they'll listen to what you 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 them the very best you can

Oh yeah

John Legend/Melanie Fiona:

The world won't get no better

 

If we just let it be

 

Oh no

The world won't get no better

You gotta change it yeah just you and me

John Legend:

 

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

Oh yeah

Melanie Fiona:

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 cause they do every time

Yeah yeah yeah

The world won't get no better

 

If we just let it be

Yeah

The world won't get no better

We gotta change it yeah just you and me

 

Yeah yi yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

It's the God hour the morning I wake up

Just for the breath of life I thank my maker

My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers

My mind build-ed on skyscrapers and acres

He said take us back to where we belong

I try to write a song as sweet as the Psalms

Though I'm the type to bear arms and wear my heart on my sleeve

Even when I fell in God I believe

Breathe the days in

Weave through the maze and the season so amazing

Feed them and raise them

Seasons are aging earthquakes wars and rumors

I want us to get by but we're more then consumers

We're more than shooters more than looters

Created in his image so God live through us

And even in this generation living through computers

Only love love love can reboot us

Wake up everybody

No more sleeping in bed

Oh

Wake up everybody

Little help

Yes I do need a little help

 

Case you all

 

Oh need a little help y'all ay

 

Come on come on come on come on

I need a little help y'all ay

Can do all

 

Oh need a little help y'all ay

 

Oh oh oh oh

 

Wake up everybody

 

Wake up everybody

 

Wake up everybody
