  • Well I was born one morning in the month of May
    Where the sun don't shine and the good don't stray
    Yeah there was blood on the streets every single day
    Alright
    Because the crime comes cheap when the bills don't pay uh

    Ha, let me tell you

    Well I grew up quick and I grew up mean
    Yeah my beats got hard and my wits got keen
    I met a man on the corner where the blind men see
    And these are the words that he said to me now

    He said you got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    You got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    Oh tell 'em
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet to get what you need
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet, get up now

    Well Lord I know that I been bad
    But I done my best with the luck I had, yeah
    And if I learned one thing I realized
    That in this life you got to put up a fight, yeah

    You got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    You got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet to get what you need
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet, get up now

    Yeah, you got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    You got to get up on your feet to get what you need
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet to get what you need
    (I don't need salvation brother, I got time on my side)
    Get up on your feet to get what you need Writer/s: WILLIAM SINCLAIR
