The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. Ray Davies (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained members throughout the group's 32-year run.

Here's a song for all the little men, who get forgotten 
Trodden time and time again 
Here's a message for the little guy, don't let this situation pass you by 
You're in the middle while the big mouths fight 
You get it from the left and the right, ain't it crazy 

So get out of your easy chairs, we've got a lot to do out there 
Well ain't we 
Good's gone bad but right is wrong and I don't know which side I'm on lately 

Get up from the down you are in 
Come out of your homes and let's see your faces 
Get up out of your easy chairs, get up and show 'em that you're there 
Get up it's your one salvation 
Wise up to the situation 

Somebody gotta get up and shout 
Somebody gotta give us some clout 
You're the ones to make it all work out 
It all depends on you 

Get up off your arses men 
Don't let 'em think you're getting lazy 
Get up out of your easy chairs 
We gotta lot to do out there, well ain't we 
Get up, get up, get up, 
Get up, get up, get up
