"READY"

Chorus 1
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready
To do what you gotta do.
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready.
Now is the time to choose.

Repeat Chorus 1

Lead break 1: -- two times

Verse 1
There’s a war going on
And have you come here to fight?
There’s bloodshed and pain
And people giving their lives.
If you’re searching for amusement, a place to do your own thing,
You’ve come to the wrong place,
‘Cause we’re trying hard to keep moving on and win this big race.
If you’re not gonna use your hands
And turn around and fight,
Then out of my way,
‘Cause you’re obstructing my sight.

Chorus 2
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready
To do what you gotta do.
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready.
Now is the time to choose.

Verse 2
Some people are falling
And it’s become a crying shame.
Have you done your best to help see them through
Or do you plan to do the same?
It’s been hard, been tough,
It’ll be long and be rough,
But it’s harder even yet
When inside the ranks there’s a fire raging wild,
Burning with doubt and regret.
It’s time to get ready to survive this big war,
Or make up your mind
What are you here for?

Short break:

Chorus 3
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready
To do what you gotta do.
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready.
Now is the time to choose.

Refrain
If you’ve gotten bored
Just hanging around the door,
If you’ve forgotten what this war’s really for,
Then hear the battle cry.
Let’s stand side by side,
Lay down the weights,
To rise up and fight.

Lead break 2: -- three times

Ending Chorus
You’d better get ready, ready, ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready
To do what you gotta do.
You’d better get ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready.
Now is the time to choose.
You’d better get ready, ready, ready, ready.
Are you ready already?
You’d better get ready, ready
To do what you gotta do.
