"Stand Up" as written by and George Wallace....
I remember when you first arrived
Medicated, till barely alive
And I watched with wonder as color returned to your cheeks
Thinking of the words I'd say, should we ever get the chance to speak (I'd say)

Stand up, don't be foolish
You got one life to live, may as well start it now
Get your hands up, come on let's do this
It's just you and me baby and all the time we're allowed

I remember when you first awoke
Eyes like steel, voice like velvet rope
You said you'd been dreaming of a man who looked like me
Who gave the most sincere advice without the slightest hint of irony
(saying)

Stand up, don't be foolish
You got one life to live, may as well start it now
Get your hands up, come on let's do this
It's just you and me baby and all the time we're allowed

We all thought you would grow strong
Who knew we could be so wrong

I remember when you first broke loose
Some chased after, I said what's the use
Everybody comes around here looking for a change
Happy are the ones who learn it's not so odd to be strange

Stand up, don't be foolish
You got one life to live, may as well start it now
Get your hands up, come on let's do this
It's just you and me baby and all the time we're allow
