Common, John Legend, Melanie Fiona, The Roots
Wake up everybody

[John Legend]
Wake up everybody
No more sleepin' in bed
No more backward thinkin'
Time for thinkin' ahead

The world has changed
So very much
From what it used to be
There is so much hatred
War and poverty oh-oh-yeah

[Melanie Fiona]
Wake up, all the teachers
Time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen
To what'cha have to say

'Cause they're the ones who's coming up
And the world is in their hands
When you teach the children
Teach 'em the very best you can

[John Legend & Melanie Fiona]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be (na, na, na)
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

[John Legend]
Wake up, all the doctors
Make the old people well
They're the ones who suffer
And who catch all the hell (And who catch all the hell)

But they don't have so very long
Before the Judgment Day (ooh)
So wont'cha make them happy
Before they pass away

[Melanie Fiona]
Wake up, all the builders
Time to build a new land
I know we can do it
If we all lend a hand

The only thing we have to do
Is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out
Cause we do it every time

[John Legend & Melanie Fiona]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be (na, na, na)
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it, yeah
Just you and me

It's the god hour
Were we belong
I try to write a song
We're more than consumers

[John Legend + Melanie Fiona]
Wake up, everybody
Wake up, everybody
Need a little help, y'all
Yes I do, need a little help

Need a little help, y'all ay
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
Wake up everybody
