Wake up everybody, no more sleeping in bed
No more back with thinking, time for thinking ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it used to be
There is so much hatred, war and poverty
Oh oh oh
Ooh

Wake up all the teachers, it's time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to what you have to say
'Cause they're the ones who will come to know
The world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach the very best you can, oh ooh

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

Wake up all the doctors
Make the old people well
They're the ones who suffer and who catch all the hell
They don't have so very long before the judgment day
So won't you make them happy
Before they pass away

Wake up all the builders
It's time to build a new plan
I know that 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
They do it every time
Oh ooh

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

Wake up everybody, no more sleeping in bed
No more back with thinking, time for thinking ahead
The world has changed so very much from what it used to be
There is so much hatred, war and poverty

Wake up all the builders
It's time to build a new plan
I know that we can do it
If we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do
Is put it in our minds
Things are gonna work out
They do it every time
'Cause I know this world

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

Sing out
All you preachers
Everybody
Hey, start... start start living what you preach
Come on, wake up... politicians...everybody
Stop lying... stop... stop lying
Wake up everybody
Still to work
Still to do work
Wake up everybody
Drug dealers... stop pushing dope
Come on
Wake up everybody, come on now
Teach your brand new way
And maybe they'll listen, yeah
This is me
Start change
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
