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 you’re overstepping, BACK UP If you get behind, CATCH UP If they knock you down, GET UP If you’re 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 you’re being hard, EASE UP If your heart is closed, OPEN UP If you want to buy something, SAVE UP-- It’s 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 you’re 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 belt’s too loose, CINCH IT UP If your fly is down, ZIP IT UP If you’re dressed half naked, COVER IT UP If you can’t afford stuff, PASS IT UP-- No “bailouts” folks, PONY UP If you made a promise, you BACK IT UP And you can take your whining and PACK IT UP It’s called personal responsibility, so TAKE IT UP This country was founded on it, you can LOOK IT UP It’s 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 life’s unfair, you SUCK IT UP When life is funny, you can YUCK IT UP When life is sad, just LOOK STRAIGHT UP And life’s too short people, so LIVE IT UP!
