A message of fun and quirky inspiration with the call to action "Come on get up, this is Saint Rita's Day."

lyrics

(Get up, get up… come on get up, get up)

The world woke up, it was SAINT RITA'S DAY
In every park, a band began to play
Every piece of clothing seem to fit just right
You're gonna look so clever when we’re steppin’ out tonight, so
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY

Buses are running, but you don’t have to pay
The orphanage has no children, the postman has no bills
The priest has no confessors and the lawyers read no wills, so
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
(Get up, get up... get up, get up)
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY

On all the news, they had nothin’ much to say
Those overdues, have just melted away
There’s bankers on the corner giving cash to passers-by
While mothers sleep in peace because their babies never cry, so
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
The empty road, is your personal highway

The fish are biting and the dogs don’t bark
The surf is running up in Central Park
The supermarket’s instituted fifty-six more lanes
There’s a million extra taxis comin’ if it ever rains, so
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY

Your boss is smiling, he’s a real nice guy
The trains and the planes are gonna run on time
Your lover understands you and your friends don’t let you down
They value your opinion even find you quite profound, so

Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
(Get up, get up... get up, get up)
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
(Get up, get up... get up, get up)
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
(Get up, get up... get up, get up)
Come on get up, this is SAINT RITA'S DAY
(Get up, get up... get up, get up)
