Gaah really? I didn’t think my memory is so bad… Don’t remember the date but it was  a day I spent with some of my favorite GF’s … went to spa, had good lunch and did some shopping.

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!

Preacher man, don’t tell me,
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth.
It’s not all that glitters is gold;
‘Alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. come on!

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!
