Verse 1
Wake up
A good morning, ma'am
Your early morning call
You must wake up
Wake up
Wake up, man!
Wake up, child!
Pay attention!
Come on, wake up!
Wake up, love!
We should make the night
But see your little lights alive
Stop that lying and sleeping in bed, get up!
(Ma needs a shower, get out of bed)
Little light
Can you not see that little light up there?
Where?
There!
Where?
Over here
You still in bed?
Wake up, sleepy head!
We are of the going water and the gone
We are of water in the Holy Land of water
Don't you know you've kept him waiting
Look who's here to see you!

Listen to me, listen to me, baby!
Listen, baby, help me!
Baby, help me, help me!
Listen to me, talk to me!

I question your innocence
She's a witch
(Help this blackbird, there's a stone around my leg)
Ha, damn you, woman

What say you, good people
(Guilty, guilty, guilty)
Well, are you responsible for your actions?
(This blackbird)
Not guilty (help this blackbird)
Wake up the witch
Verse 11
Get out of the waves!
Get out of the water!
