Nickelback - Get 'Em Up

Get 'Em Up is the seventh single from their eight studio album No Fixed Address.

His drivers license said James, he went by Jim
A gangster wannabe, and baby that was him
He stole his uncle's .44 last Friday night
Said if I wanted in we'd have to plan this thing just right
We'll need the gloves, we'll need the bags, a couple masks
We'll need to steal a car with windows tinted black
He picked the nearest bank on Main and 17th
We wrote down every line from every movie that we've seen

Screaming
This is a robbery, now get down on the floor
We're here for all this xxxx that you don't need no more, yeah
We want your cash, open the safe, get off your phone
Don't be a hero and you might just make it home
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up
Get 'em, get 'em up

The freshly stolen Mustang small block 302
Drove past the bank a dozen times this afternoon
The only parking spot was half a block away
Gave us time to practice just exactly what to say

Screaming
This is a robbery, now get down on the floor
We're here for all this xxxx that you don't need no more, yeah
We want your cash, open the safe, get off your phone
Don't be a hero and you might just make it home
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up
Get 'em, get 'em up

The only thing I wish that one of us had known
That it was Sunday and the goddamn bank was closed
Too bad we didn't see the cops across the street
We dropped our guns and tried to run
and there went all our dreams

Screaming
This is a robbery, now get down on the floor
We're here for all this xxxx that you don't need no more, yeah
We wanted easy street and now we'll never know
Somebody call my mom and tell her I ain't coming home
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up, and get down
Reach for the sky, then go ahead and kiss the ground
Get 'em up.
