It's UP time, America!

 

If you see injustice, STAND UP


If something needs to be said, SPEAK UP


If you make an appointment, SHOW UP


If you make a mistake, FESS UP


If youíre overstepping, BACK UP


If you get behind, CATCH UP


If they knock you down, GET UP


If youíre out of line, STRAIGHTEN UP


When your boss instructs, KEEP UP


When your elders speak, LISTEN UP


When your teachers teach, SIT UP


When your preachers preach, WAKE UP


When your country calls, MAN UP


Ladies too... WOMAN UP


When the fight is over, MAKE UP
 

If youíre being hard, EASE UP
 

If your heart is closed, OPEN UP
 

If you want to buy something, SAVE UP--
 

Itís not an entitlement, so SHUT UP!
 

If you make a mess, CLEAN IT UP
 

If you drop trash, PICK IT UP
 

If a car is waiting for you to walk across the street, SPEED IT UP


If youíre cold busted, GIVE IT UP
 

If people fall down, HELP THEM UP--
 

Not the government, YOU STEP UP
 

If idiots start fighting, BREAK IT UP
 

If the music is wholesome, TURN IT UP
 

If the message is poisonous, THROW IT UP
 

If your words are vulgar, CLAM IT UP
 

If your words encourage, KEEP IT UP
 

If your pants are baggy, PULL THEM UP
 

If the beltís too loose, CINCH IT UP
 

If your fly is down, ZIP IT UP
 

If youíre dressed half naked, COVER IT UP
 

If you canít afford stuff, PASS IT UP--
 

No ďbailoutsĒ folks, PONY UP
 

If you made a promise, you BACK IT UP
 

And you can take your whining and PACK IT UP
 

Itís called personal responsibility, so TAKE IT UP
 

This country was founded on it, you can LOOK IT UP
 

Itís the American way people, so TURN IT UP
 

Because when life gets boring, you SHAKE IT UP
 

When life is good, you SOAK IT UP
 

When lifeís unfair, you SUCK IT UP
 

When life is funny, you can YUCK IT UP
 

When life is sad, just LOOK STRAIGHT UP
 

And lifeís too short people, so LIVE IT UP!
