Wake up and live, y'all
Wake up and live!
Wake up and live now!
Wake up and live!

Life is one big road with lots of signs
So when you riding through the ruts 
Don't you complicate your mind
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy!
Don't bury your thoughts 
Put your vision to reality, yeah!

All together now
Wake up and live (wake up and live, y'all)
Wake up and live (wake up and live)
Wake up and wake up and live, yeah! (Wake up and live now)
Wake up and (wake up and live), wake up and live!
Rise ye mighty people, yeah!
There's work to be done
So let's do it a little by little
Rise from your sleepless slumber! Yes, yeah! Yes, yeah!
We're more than sand on the seashore
We're more than numbers

All together now
Wake up and live now, y'all!
(Wake up and live) Wake up and live! Wake up
(Wake up and live, y'all) Wake up and live now!
You see, one, one cocoa full a basket
Whey they use you live big today, tomorrow you buried in a casket
One, one cocoa full a basket, yeah, yes!
Whey they use you live big today, tomorrow you bury in a casket

W'all together now (wake up and live now!) 
Wake up and live! Oh! Yeah! (Wake up and live!) Uh!
(Wake up and live now!) Wake up and live!
(Wake up and live) Keep on playin'!
(Wake up and live, y'all) Uh! Yeah! Yeah!
(Wake up and live!)
(Wake up and live now!)
(Wake up and live!) Break it down!

Come on, man!
How is it feelin' over there?
(Wake up and live now) All right!
(Wake up and live!) Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! Uh!
Come on, man!
You gotta wake up and live!

Life is one big road with lots of signs, yes!
So when you riding through the ruts
Don't you complicate your mind
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy!
Don't bury your thoughts 
Put your dream to reality, yeah!

W'all together now (wake up and live, y'all)
(Wake up and live!) Wake up and live, yeah!
(Wake up and live now!)
(Wake up and live!)
(Wake up and live now!)
(Wake up and live) Wooh!
(Wake up and live now!)
(Wake up and live!)
