Jackson Five "Stand"

 A song dedicated to the protest against the Vietnam War and a call for peace. No doubt Michael Jackson had much influence on doing a cover for this. As always, The Jackson 5 add a little Funk to the mix. Sly and the Family Stone were the first to perform this tune. Click Here to have a listen on the original. I'd say The Jackson Five have it a step ahead on this one.


Lyrics


Stand! In the end you'll still be you
One that's done all the things you set out to do.
Stand! There's a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you're going anywhere.
(Everybody say):
Stand! For the things you know are right.
It's the truth that the truth makes them so uptight.
Stand! All the things you want are real.
You have you to complete and there is no deal.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Oom bah bah bah Oom bah bah bah
Stand! Stand!
Huh! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Stand! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya .
Stand! They will try to make you crawl.
And they know what they're saying makes no sense at all.
Stand! Don't you know that you are free?
Well, at least in your mind if you want to be.
(Everybody say):
Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya.
Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya. (etc. to fade)
