It's a grainy video with scratchy sound. Yet it has a wonderfully clear message that's coupled with a catchy chorus: Lift yourself up! Shake off the dust! Array yourself in beauty, O my people! So, Get Up with Dan Nichols and go dancin down those holy gates!


 

Get Up (HITNA’ARI) - Lyrics - Dan Nichols

Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up

Hit-na-a-ri, hit-na-a-ri, mei-a-far ku-mi
Lift yourself up! Shake off the dust!
 
Liv’-shi big-dei tif-far-teich a-mi
Array yourself in beauty, O my people!

It’s too late to sleep now, baby Shake the dust off all our dreams 
Dress yourself in something pretty
Oh, holy child, come on and celebrate with me

Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up

Hit-na-a-ri, hit-na-a-ri, mei-a-far ku-mi
Lift yourself up! Shake off the dust!

Liv’-shi big-dei tif-far-teich a-mi
Array yourself in beauty, O my people!

Don’t look back over your shoulder
Don’t wait around ‘til it’s too late
Now’s your time in the spotlight
We need you now, come on dancing through those holy gates!
 
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
