Lyrics

Rise Up
5/16/2016
Written by Jason Moon and James Theodore Snuffy Smith for Project M #4

I see the rich and famous, on a glossy magazine.
What they got you know I want it, caviar and limousines.
Instead, I’m breaking my back, while there up there living dream.

Sitting high up in their mansion, their the richest one percent.
While I am working overtime, just to pay the rent.
They say money can’t buy happiness, but they sure seem content.

(Chorus)
If I had what you had, I gladly share it with you.
I don’t have what you have, cause you make all the rules.
Look like the only way, I’m ever going to make it.
Is when I finally decide, to rise up and take it.

The good book says that I shouldn’t look at you this way.
But I can’t help but notice that new Mercedes Benz in your driveway.
Think I might just steal a tow truck and hall that thing away.

(Chorus) (might)

(Bridge)
You have more than anyone man could ever need.
If I had what you have, I’d be just as happy as can be.
If I ever get to take my seat up there in first class.
I’ll turn around and tell the whole world they can kiss my…

Ask me what I want, I’ll tell you I want to settle the score.
I’ll take everything you have, and then I’ll take a little more.
I’ll be the rich man and you can take a turn being poor.

(Last chorus)
Now that I got what you had, I’m not going to share with you.
You don’t get what I got, cause now I make all the rules.
Look like the only way you’re ever going to make it.
Is when you do like I did and, rise up and take it.

Rise up and take it.
Rise up and take it.
Rise up and take it.
You got a rise up and take it.
