Get up Edina
Get up Edina, a let me tell you now
Get up Edina
Get up Edina, girl
I said to get up Edina
I said to get up Edina, girl

I send you a school, you won't learn
I send you a church, you won't hear
I'm gonna send you back to your mama's house
I'm gonna send you back to your papa's house
I'm gonna send you back where you come from

I said to go home, go home, Edina
I said to get up Edina, girl
Because you wait up, Edina, girl
I said to get up Edina
Because you wait up, Edina, girl
I said to come out, Edina
Because you wait up, Edina, girl

Get up Edina
Get up Edina, girl
I said to come out, Edina
Because you wait up, Edina, girl

I send you a school, you won't learn
I send you a church, you won't hear
I'm gonna send you back to your mama's house
I'm gonna send you back to your papa's house
Uncle, come take her away
I don't want to see her no more

I said to get out, Edina
Get out, Edina, girl
I am a sending you back to your mama's house
I am a sending you back to your papa's house
Because you wait up, Edina girl
I say you down a di gully
