"Wake Up Everybody" as written by Gene Mcfadden, John Whitehead and Victor Carstarphen....
Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed
No more backward thinkin' time for thinkin' ahead
The world has changed so very much
From what it used to be
There is so much hatred war and poverty
Oh yeah

Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to whatcha have to say
Cause they're the ones who's coming up
And the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach 'em the very best you can
Oh yeah

[Chorus]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it yeah,
Just you and me.

Wake up all the doctors make the ol' people well
They're the ones who suffer an' who catch all the hell
But they don't have so very long before the Judgment Day
So won'tcha make them happy before they pass away.

Wake up all the builders time to build a new land
I know we can do it if we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it in our minds
Surely things will work out cause they do every time.

The world won't get no better
If we just let it be
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it yeah,
Just you and me.

Yeah, yeah

It's the God hour
The morning I wake up
Just for the breath of life I thank my maker
My mom say I come from hustlers and shakers
My mom buidin' on skyscrapers and acres
He said take us back to where we belong
I try to write a song
As sweet as the Psalms
Though I'm the type to bare arms
And wear my heart on my sleeve
Even when I fell in God I believe
Read the days that weave through the maze
The seasons so amazing
Feed them and raised them
Seasons are aging
Earthquakes, wars, and rumors
I want us to get by but
We're more than consumers
We more than shooters, more than looters
Created in this image so God live through us
And even in this generation, living through computers
Only love love love can reboot us

Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed
Wake up, everybody
Need a little help,
Can't do it alone
Need a little help y'all
C'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon
Need a little help, y'all
Can't do it alone
Need a little help, y'all
Can't do it alone
Oh, wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody

    General CommentIt's great song like this that I really wish there are more songs like this.
    Very moving and inspiring. Not to mention beautiful music compositions & arrangement that can really MOVE your soul!

    I myself am a Gen Y, and it is indeed sad to see of how music nowadays tend to be all about shallowness, sex, money, materialistic value, commercialism, and more money & sex,..all in the name of "sex sells".
    that's utter crap, IMO.
    these people (especially the top record labels & executives, that unfortunately & pitifully use their immense POWER to do the WRONG things, instead of pushing such a STRONG, powerful CHANGE in society!) probably never realize what harms they're really causing in the LONG-run of things!
