Wo yo, wo yo, wo yo, wo yo, wo yo, yo yo yo

Wo yooo yo yo, wo yooo yo yo

Wo yoo wo yo, yo yo yo yo!

Rising up, rising up ina Africa

Rising up, rising up in America

Rising up, they rising up in your neighbourhood

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look

Call up the youth, let them know the rules, rally the youth, educate their minds

Teach them to learn, how to respect life, future leaders, must be serious men

Take a look around, tell me what you see, youthmen wasting their lives taking drugs

Get off from the wall, and find something to do, you can make it only if you try

Tell me what the constant violence can bring, we need better people to rule the world. Let’s say

Rising up, rising up ina Africa

Rising up, rising up in America

Rising up, they rising up in your neighbourhood

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look

Ayo yo yo, ayo yo yo, ayo yo yo

We yo, we yo, we yo, we yo, ayo yo yo

Political refugees, war on every continent, poverty and suffering, diseases everywhere

North south, east and west population on the street, shouting for some change to come

Uprising

Bob Marley said it,

Lucky Dube said it,

Alfa Blondy and Peter Tosh said it too.

Burning Spear said it,

Culture said it,

Rastaman need no war in this world.

Call up the youth, let them know the rules, rally the youth, educate their minds

Teach em to learn how to respect life, future leaders must be serious men. Let’s say

Rising up, rising up ina Africa

Rising up, rising up in America

Rising up, they rising up in your neighbourhood

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look

Rising up, rising up ina Africa

Rising up, rising up in America

Rising up, they rising up in your neighbourhood

Rising up, rising oh up everywhere you look

Rising up, rising up ina Africa

Rising up, rising up in America

Rising up, they rising up in your neighbourhood

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look

Rising up, oh rising up everywhere you look
