Melanie Fiona
Wake Up Everybody (Live)
[Intro: John Legend & Alicia Keys]
C'mon, happy Juneteenth! (Ayy)
Celebration
Wake up, everybody
Shout out to Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes
Teddy Pendergra**, rest in peace
Wait for it
Wait for it

[Verse 1: John Legend]
Wake up everybody, no more sleeping in bed
No more backward thinking, time for thinking 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, yeah

[Verse 2: Melanie Fiona]
Wake up all the teachers, time to teach a new way
Maybe then they'll listen to what you 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 them the very best you can
Oh, yeah

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

[Verse 3: John Legend]
Wake up all the doctors, make the old people well
They're the ones who suffer and who catch all the hell (Catch all the hell)
But they don't have so very long before their Judgment Day (Oh)
So won't you make them happy before they pa** away?
Oh, yeah

[Verse 4: 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've gotta do is put it in our mind
Surely things'll work out, 'cause they do every time
Yeah
[Chorus: John Legend & Alicia Keys]
The world won't get no better
If we just let it be, oh-oh
The world won't get no better
We gotta change it, yeah, just you and me (Mm, yes, we do)

[Outro: Alicia Keys & John Legend]
Right on time, yes, mane (Yeah)
Melanie Fiona is so fire (Melanie), big love to you
I wanna play this song
That is the first time that I ever wrote—
Wrote with and worked with Tony! Toni! Toné! (Ooh)
Um, and man, oh, man
Those brothers are so crazy
So crazy, the musicianship and the whole thing is outrageous
So definitely have to play, this is one of my favorites
I remember, I li— I played the piano of this a hundred times
Before I could ever find the words
This was one of those ones
You probably have those (Yes)
And for whatever reason, the piano knew what it wanted to do but the words didn't
Until finally, big love to Jermaine Paul, too
It went like this
