Get Up
by Virtue

Album: Testimony
by Virtue


[Verse 1:]
I remember back when I was a little, young girl,
I remember mama saying, ("get up"),
"you can't sit there, (get up)",
"when it's time to give the Lord some praise".

Now evidently she knew exactly
Where the praise would get me,
That's why (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Verse 2:]
Now I remember when situation's
Had me kind of hindered,
But my spirit kept saying, (get up),
I can't sit there, (get up)
When it's time to give the Lord some praise.

When the praise is over,
The weight it really lifted off my shoulder, that's why
(when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Verse 3:]
Now it was kind of weekly,
That on the job, the devil tried to get me,
That's why you hear me keep saying (get up),
You can't sit there, (get up),
I told you, you slap the devil's face.

Now when I get that praise,
On the job, it couldn't come my way,
That's why (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Verse 4:]
Now the doctor told me, from day to day,
I've got to take it easy,
That was just like him saying, (get up),
You can't sit there (get up),
'cause it's time to give the Lord some praise.

Now when my body was achin',
A something in my hand a got to shakin',
That's why (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Chorus:]
Get up, get up, get up, get up,
Get up, get up, get up, get up.

Get up, get up, get up, get up,
When the praise is going up,
Get up from your seat now.

[Verse 5:]
Now if you want to go and tell
The person sittin' next to ya,
Don't you hear what I say, (get up)
You shouldn't sit there (get up),
'cause it's time to give the Lord some praise.

Now if I had it my way,
These chairs wouldn't even be here no way,
'cause (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Verse 6:]
Now if you think you lost it,
And you're lookin' for some joy for it,
First you got to (get up),
Don't site there (get up),
'cause it's time to give the Lord some praise.

And before you know it,
Something in your body starts to show it,
That's why (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Chorus]

[Verse 7:]
Now everybody just keep saying
You can praise without me,
Sooner or later you gonna wish you (got up)
From sitting (got up)
'cause you need the Lord to come your way.

And then you want to get
The elders to pray for you,
But I told you (when the praise is going up),
(get up from your seat now).

[Chorus]
