lyrics

[Dorothy Dandridge]

Stand up…

[Natalie Davies]

Count my blessings as I lay my head to rest
Thankful for the pillow to which my face is gently pressed
I reflect upon the choices of my day, the fears I evade and the bricks I have laid
As I drift into my sleep, I compose a tribute to the brave

We forget at times its an easy road we walk
chiselled over decades they valued action over talk
for Martin set the bar when he dreamt his dream
and Rosa stood her ground sitting firmly in her seat

[Dorothy Dandridge]

Stand up and be counted.

[Natalie Davies]

When facing injustice and we fear we stand alone
remember the same makings are in the seedling to the oak
and the brave stand with us when we fly the flag they've flown

When handed opportunity let's not squander what they've gained
Ignorance and apathy should not be the poor man's game

[Dorothy Dandridge]

Stand up and be counted.

[Natalie Davies]

Rest not on your laurels – stand tall to break the fall of yourself and others
Be not complacent about historical victories and their causal relation to current place status and dreams
Give thanks to formidable slaves, great dames who paved the way for you and me
Do you honestly believe we should've earned the right to vote, speak freely and breathe – a divine right in the mind's eye for which they had to bleed?

[Dorothy Dandridge]

More and more of us are glad for the opportunity to stand up and be counted.

[Natalie Davies]

Stand up and be…

Its never easy to swim against the tide – the sea of inequality cannot be crossed in a stride
Today is nothing but missed chances. privileged stance, silenced answers; uncast votes, misquotes and scapegoats; status quo upheld by banknotes.

[Dorothy Dandridge / Natalie Davies]

Stand up and be counted.
