We gotta get up
Even if we don’t want to.
That’s just how it is.

We gotta get up
Even if it hurts too much.
That’s just what we do.

We gotta get up
Even if all hope is gone.
That’s just who we are.

Cruelties of life
Have come to overwhelm you?
Face it on your feet!

You gotta get up.
Even if love kills the heart
The soul never dies.

Get up you bastard!
Make them know you won’t give in.
You’re better than that.

Demanding a raise
Really means you’re asking for
More fricking work.  Ugh.
