"Get Up" as written by Francis Healy and Douglas Payne....
Wish someone would
Write me a song
Or tell me a story
So I don't need to worry
I need a little love
And a hand to hold
Somebody old
To watch over me
I need a little time
So I don't have to hurry

Oh, you say it all

You gotta get up [Repeat: x3]
But
I don't wanna get up
You gotta get up
You gotta get up
You gotta wake up
To the situation

I wish someone
Would answer
The phone
Stop leaving me
Hanging on
I'm feeling
Like a little ship
Out on the ocean
I need a little love
And a hand to hold
Somewhere
To hold the frustration
I need a little cause
For celebration

Oh, you say it all

You gotta get up [Repeat: x3]
I don't wanna get up
You gotta get up
You gotta get up
You gotta wake up
To the situation

Growing up
Checking notes
So you know
Just
Just which way to go

You gotta get up [Repeat: x4]
You've just gotta
You've just gotta
You've gotta
You've just gotta
You've gotta gotta

Oh, you say it all

You gotta get up [Repeat: x3]
I don't wanna get up
You gotta get up
You gotta get up

    General CommentThis is such a melancholy album when you listen to the lyrics. Even this song, which sounds really upbeat, is about being depressed, which seems to be what every song on Ode to J. Smith is about
