Sir The Baptist – Wake Up Lyrics

[INTRO]

La da da da da
La da da da da
La da da da uh
Ohhhh
La da da da da
La da da da da
Wake up now
TRUTH

[VERSE 1]

If everybody aim
And everybody shoot
Then who would live to tell it
I mean who could you tell it to?
Cuz everybody had the guts to aim and shoot
But who would be the martyr?
Let someone wake up to the truth
WAKE UP
He aims for the guy
That aims for the sky
Let’s pray don’t shoot
Let it ricochet instead of split his fade
Like, like pac off juice
More blacks have died to a black man’s gun
Than a white man’s noose
And if that’s not the truth
HA
Then they’ll wait for the proof

[Chorus]

We gotta wake up!
HOO
We gotta wake up!
HUH
Oh can I wake up?
HAY
I gotta wake up
HOO
Let that boy wake up
HOO
Oh, can she wake up
HUH
Before it’s too late
HAY
We gotta wake up
HUH
Oh, we can change, we can change, we can change, we can change the world
Yeah we can, if we try
Oh we can change, we can change, we can change, we can change the world
Oh let’s mourn for the ones who died

If you gonna do some’, do some’ great
If you gonna be some’, be some’ great
If you gonna do some’, do some’ great

Lets mourn for the ones who died

If you gonna do some’, do some’ great
If you gonna be some’, be some’ great
If you gonna do some’, do some’ great

SCAT

WAKE UP

[VERSE 2]

Who prays for the man who prays for the world?
Who save the man who save the world?
How do i get him on my side?
Does it take a follow or just a like?

Ain’t really got but one chance to die
Ain’t really great but i love my life
Government says where your jesus christ
But you told me to keep Him outside

WHAT IF

Trayvon was the next Martin Luther
And just arrived early to the shooter
WHAT IF
What if Hadiya had an idea
But it died in the park she coulda been Rosa
What if Eric Garner was just another warning
WHAT IF
I’m wondering what if these what if’s are waiting for us to wake up?

[Chorus]

Wake up!
HUH
We gotta wake up!
HUH
We gotta wake up!
HAY
Come on and wake up!
HOO
Oh, let him wake up!
HOO
Give her time to wake up!
HUH
Before it’s too late
HAY
We gotta wake up!
HOO

Oh we can change, we can change, we can change, we can change the world
Oh, if we try!
SCAT
Oh we can change, we can change, we can change, we can change the world
Can we mourn for the ones that died?

If you gonna do some’, do some’ great
If you gonna be some’, be some’ great
If you gonna do some’, do some’ great

Ooooooooh

If you gonna do some’, do some’ great
If you gonna be some’, be some’ great
If you gonna do some’, do some’ great

Tell somebody

Oh, we can change, we can change, we can change, we can change the world
Somebody say
Tell somebody
Good Lord
WAKE UP
If you could do some’ do some’ great
If you could be some’ be some’ great
If you could live some’ live some’ great

You could change the world but you gotta have faith

If you could do some’ do some’ great
If you could be some’ be some’ great
If you could live some’ live some’ great
If we gonna be somebody
If we gonna go somewhere
Gotta wake up!
WAKE UP
WAKE UP
WAKE UP
