Lyrics:
Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin',
Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin', 
Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin',  
Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin', 
Rock on, sisters! Rock on! 

Awaken the world, sisters.
  Awakenin', awakenin' the world. Wake up! 
Awaken the world, sisters.
  Awakenin', awakenin' the world. 

We are the ones   Who get things done.
We are the ones   Who make it run.
We are the ones   Who work together. 
Together we can change the world. 

Honor the mothers. 
Honor the mothers who carried us through, to get us to 
a world of possibility 
where we can see 
how to be more, how to live free. 
We stand on the shoulders. 
We stand on the shoulders of women who died, and 
women who cried out 
for freedom, for justice, for life. 

Some of us rock the cradle. 
Some of us rock the boat. 
Giving what we are able 
   to do, to see, to be. 

Standing on the rock of community.
Standing on the rock of community. 
We're standing on the rock of community.  
Makin' a way to grow and live the power,  
   the power of our own truth. 

Together we can change the world. Liberty! 
Together we can change the world. Equality! 
Together we can change the world. Community! 
Together we can change the world. 

Fix this world. There's a whole lot to do.
Fix this world. Gonna make it new.
Fix this world. It's up to me and you. 

I witnessed.  Because it needed to be done.
I spoke out.  Because it needed to be done. 
I stood up.    Because it needed to be done. 
I did what needed, I did what needed, I did what needed to be done.

Awaken the world, sisters.
 Awakenin', awakenin' the world. Wake up! 
Awaken the world, sisters.
 Awakenin', awakenin' the world. Wake up! 

We are the ones   Who get things done.
We are the ones   Who make it run.
We are the ones   Who work together, 
Together we can change the world. 

Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin', Together we can change the world
Movin' and a-shakin' and a-shakin' and a-movin', Together we can change the world.
Together, Together, Together, Together,
Together we can change the world.
