    If you see injustice, STAND UP
    If something needs to be said, SPEAK UP
    If you make an appointment, SHOW UP
    If you make a mistake, FESS UP
    If you’re overstepping, BACK UP
    If you get behind, CATCH UP
    If they knock you down, GET UP
    If you’re out of line, STRAIGHTEN UP
    When your boss instructs, KEEP UP
    When your elders speak, LISTEN UP
    When your teachers teach, SIT UP
    When your preachers preach, WAKE UP
    When your country calls, MAN UP
    Ladies too... WOMAN UP
    When the fight is over, MAKE UP
    If you’re being hard, EASE UP
    If your heart is closed, OPEN UP
    If you want to buy something, SAVE UP--
    It’s not an entitlement, so SHUT UP!
    If you make a mess, CLEAN IT UP
    If you drop trash, PICK IT UP
    If a car is waiting for you to
    walk across the street, SPEED IT UP
    If you’re cold busted, GIVE IT UP
    If people fall down, HELP THEM UP--
    Not the government, YOU STEP UP
    If idiots start fighting, BREAK IT UP
    If the music is wholesome, TURN IT UP
    If the message is poisonous, THROW IT UP
    If your words are vulgar, CLAM IT UP
    If your words encourage, KEEP IT UP
    If your pants are baggy, PULL THEM UP
    If the belt’s too loose, CINCH IT UP
    If your fly is down, ZIP IT UP
    If you’re dressed half naked, COVER IT UP
    If you can’t afford stuff, PASS IT UP--
    No “bailouts” folks, PONY UP
    If you made a promise, you BACK IT UP
    And you can take your whining and PACK IT UP
    It’s called personal responsibility, so TAKE IT UP
    This country was founded on it, you can LOOK IT UP
    It’s the American way people, so TURN IT UP
    Because when life gets boring, you SHAKE IT UP
    When life is good, you SOAK IT UP
    When life’s unfair, you SUCK IT UP
    When life is funny, you can YUCK IT UP
    When life is sad, just LOOK STRAIGHT UP
    And life’s too short people, so LIVE IT UP!

    Nice, but it will never fit on a t-shirt.

    Where do you find all this cool stuff?:confused:

    As an old fart, I remember a time when Jo wouldn't have had to post this - it was just how Americans were.

    Good stuff JDP...
