"You Gotta Get Up" as written by and Richard Mullins....
"I thought Christmas Day would never come
But it's here at last so mom and dad the waiting's finally done
And you gotta get up ~ you gotta get up ~ you gotta get up
It's Christmas morning

Last night I heard reindeers on my roof
Well you may think I'm exaggerating but I swear I'm tellin' you the truth
And you gotta get up, you gotta get up, you gotta get up
It's Christmas morning

Did my sister get a baby doll? Did my brother get his bike?
Did I get that red wagon the kind that makes you fly?
Oh I hope there'll be peace on earth
I know there's good will toward men
On account of that Baby born in Bethlehem

Did my sister get her baby doll? Did my brother get his bike?
Did I get that red wagon the kind that makes you fly?
Oh I hope there'll be peace on earth
I know there's good will toward men
On account of that Baby born in Bethlehem

Mom and Daddy stayed up too late last night
Oh I guess they got carried away in the Christmas candlelight
And you gotta get up, you gotta get up, you gotta get up
It's Christmas morning

And you gotta get up, you gotta get up, you gotta get up"

    General CommentI love this song. You gotta play this song around Christmas, it just fits the mood so well. Five Iron Frenzy does an excellent cover of this song as well. I love ska. I love Jesus too!!!!!!!

    General CommentThis is one of the songs (along with "Hope to Carry On") that really re-introduced me to Rich's music, and now he's one of my absolute favorites.

    He just has a way with words.
