Up, Up With People

It happened just this morning
while I was walking down the street
A milkman, and a postman,
and a policeman I did meet

There in every window,
and at every single door
Why, I recognized people
I'd never noticed before.

Up, up with people!
You meet them wherever you go!
Up, up with people!
They're the best kind of folks we know

If more people were for people
All people everywhere
There'd be a lot less people to worry about
And a lot more people who'd care.
 

UP WITH PEOPLE, Words & Music by Paul Colwell & Ralph Colwell


Can't you hear America calling?
Every boy and every girl...
We are going to fire a new shot.
Heard around the world!
East and West are rising...
There's a stirring in the land
Can't you hear?
Can't you hear America calling?
Calling --
Calling every man.

Hear that guitar!
Hear that beat!
Swing it! Swing it!
Makes you want to move your feet,
Sing it! Sing it!
If you're a square or way out,
Tall or short or slim or stout,
Don't stand still! Don't stand still!
Life's too short for that!

...
They're pounding a rhythm,
And they seem to say --
'We're rollin onward
To a better day.'
 

...
This country needs you, needs you,
needs you, needs you, needs you --
If you will dare.
And men will heed you, heed you,
heed you, heed you, heed you --
If only you care.
 

...
... We're rollin' onward
To a better day!
We're rollin' onward --
On the Sing-Out Express!

Musical entertainment touring group Up With People was founded in Tucson, AZ, in 1965 by one J. Blanton Belk in response to the growing number of protests and demonstrations by the nation's youth. Originally the group included a leadership curriculum and overseas study program in addition to a song-and-dance troupe that highlighted the talents of young performers (ages 18-25). With a squeaky-clean image and plenty of wholesome entertainment, Up With People proved popular at sporting events and other large gatherings For the Pace label, Up With People recorded a handful of LPs, among them Encore!, The Sing-Out Musical, Up With People!, and In Hollywood.
