- Man Up Lyrics


ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
What did Jesus do,
When they sentanced him to die?
Did he try to run away?
Did he just break down and cry?

No, Jesus dug down deep,
Knowing what he had to do-
When faced with his own death,
Jesus knew that he had to...

Man up.
He had to man up.
So he crawled up on that cross,
And he stuck it out.
And he manned up.
Christ, he manned up.
And taught us all what real manning
Up is about!

And now it's up to me
And it's time to man up!
Jesus had his time ta,
Now it's mine ta MAN UP!

I'm taking the reins,
I'm crossing the bear!
Just like Jesus,
I'm growing a pair!
I've gotta stand up,
Can't just clam up,
It's time ta-
MAN UP!

'Cuz there's a time in your life
When you know you've got to
MAN UP.
Don't let it pass you by,
There's just one time to
MAN UP.

Watch me man up like
Nobody else!
I'm gonna man up all
Over myself!
I've got to get ready,
It's time ta,
Time ta!

What did Jesus do
When they put nails in his hands?
Did he scream like a girl?
Or did he take it like a man?
When someone had to die
To save us from our sins,
Jesus said "I'll do it!"
And he took it on the chin!

He manned up!
He manned up,
He took a bullet for me and you,
That's man up.
Real man up.
And now it's my time ta...
DO IT TOO!

Time to be a hero
And slay the monster!
Time to battle darkness,
You're not my father!
I'm gonna time ta, just watch me go!
Time to stand up and steal the show!
Time ta!  Mine ta!
Time ta!  Time ta!
TIME TA.

NABULUNGI:
Sal Tlay Ka Siti,
A place of hope and joy...

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
MAN UP!

NABULUNGI:
And if we want to go there,
We just have to follow that white boy!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:

ELDER PRICE:
Heavenly father,
Why do you let bad things happen?

UGANDANS:
Sal Tlay Ka Siti...

NABULUNGI:
Did you get my text?

ELDER PRICE:
More to the point,
Why do you let bad things happen to me?

UGANDANS:
Sal Tlay Ka Siti!
We got your text!

ELDER PRICE:
I'm sure you don't think I'm a flake...

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
Man up!

ELDER PRICE:
Because you clearly made a mistake!

ELDERS:
Turn it off!

ELDER PRICE:
I'm going where you need me most...
ORLANDO!

ELDERS:
ORLANDO!

UGANDANS:
We will listen to the fat white guy!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
My time to, time ta,
Now it's my time to,
Time ta!

UGANDANS:
But Hasa Diga Eebowai!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
No time to, not time ta,
No, now it's time to time ta!

UGANDANS:
Huuh!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
I'm in the lead for the
Very first time!

UGANDGANS:
Time ta!

ELDER PRICE:
I'm going where the
Sun always shines!

UGANDANS:
Shines ta!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM:
I've got to stand up,
Get my flippin' can up,
It's time ta,
Time ta...
MAN UP!

NABULUNGI:                UGANDANS:                ELDER PRICE:
