(music and lyrics by Rick Springfield)

Stand up

Try a little bit of love
And a bit of persuasion
I heard love plus love’s
A universal equation
But don’t let somebody push you ’round
You gotta stand up

Stand up
You got something to say
Don’t sit there and pout it
Put your feet on the seat
Stand up and shout it
And don’t let somebody sit you down
Stand up

Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up

You wanna own the world
You want it stuffed and mounted
You can’t do it sitting down
Stand up and be counted
And if you wanna break the rules
Stand up

This ain’t no movie theater
This ain’t a classroom
Nobody’s gonna tell you what to do
So come on everybody
Get up I want you
Stand Up

Let’s see a little upward motion
You’ve got to clap your hands
If you want a commotion
But don’t let somebody sit you down
Stand up

Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up

Try a little bit, try a little bit of love
And a bit of persuasion
I heard love plus love
Is the universal equation

But don’t let somebody push you ’round
You gotta stand up
I said don’t let somebody push you ’round
You gotta stand up
Don’t let somebody push you ’round

Stand up
