Young Fathers - Alternative Hip Hop from Edinburgh, Scotland - GET UP


Love the beat, and poetic lyrics

Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up

Got no past no future Fumbling through the ether Take a ride in Aquila Cost you 30 liras Pushy dealer hits the meter A shrewd operator In the shadow of a beacon Have a dirty weekend Interesting proposition Insinuate then listen Listen listen What a way to make a living S-s-scissor to the ribbon Throw my hands like a reverendTriple sixes double sevens When I get down to this I'm the catalyst For a revolution For a revolution For a revolution-tion-tion-tion

Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up And have a party

Beautiful corpse Beautiful How you lie so still Another life fulfilled Oh beautiful corpse Beautiful How you lie so still Another life fulfilled

Fifteen hundred red cases A multitude of faces The body in the basement Double on the bunk bed You better watch the babies Careful with your manners Only drinking water on the Co-co-co-cabaña Well built family Subject to the battery the battery Mental men are manic in their manacles I meant to make a metaphor for radicals Taking off my clothes at the lido All I got is my decadent credo

I don't think that I could watch you posing dead (I don't think that I could watch you posing dead)

Get up Get up Get up Get up Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up

Abandoned by a suffragette Given to a gang of gits Sold to a pack of losers downtown Apalucia I heard you got guns Well I got fun I got something sweet What you call sin so You lose I win I saw some bunch of cowboys today I wooped-di-wood and they turned and rode away)

Get up Get up Get up Get up Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up Come here and do the right thing Get up and have a party Get up Get up

I might like this one better- "I heard"

[Verse 1]Science is eerie when you're still around Killing your body cos they found you out Calling the shots and I'm falling down Look at the dust explode on the ground

[Bridge]I'm there, I'm there, I'm there, I'm there, I'm there, I'm there, under, I'm THERE I'm there, I'm there, under, I've heard I've heard, I've head I've heard, I've head

[Hook] Inside I'm feeling dirty Inside I'm feeling dirty Inside I'm feeling dirty It's only cos I'm hurting

[Verse 2]Telephone the father sat on the armchair with a pint and a smoke Sure, no more back-handed compliments but the dishes are still in the sink Walk towards the door and there's an empty dresser, time to bring out the duster Left with a bone and a smile to last you a while Rest a shore captain from your see of travails

[Hook]

[Verse 3] Science is eerie when you're still around Killing your body cos they found you out Calling the shots and I'm falling down Look at the dust explode on the ground

[Bridge]

[Hook]

I like "I heard" better, too.
