Without further ado, here are the lyrics of...

STAND UP FOR SOMETHING
Performed by Andra Day and Common
Songwriters: Diane Eve Warren / Lonnie Rashid Lynn (Common)
Album: Marshall (Music From and Inspired By the Motion Picture) (2017)

You can have all the money in your hands
All the possessions anyone can ever have
But it's all worthless treasure
True worth is only measured not by what you got
But what you got in your heart
You can have, you can have everything
But what does it, what does it mean

It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
And I'll stand up for you
And I'll stand up for you
yes I will, yes I will

You do the best to do the best that you can do
Then you can look in the mirror
proud of who's looking back at you
Define the life you're living
Not by what you take but what you're giving
And if you bet on love no way you'll ever lose
take a stand, make a stand for what's right
It's always worth, always worth the fight

‘Cuz It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk, yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
and I'll stand up for you

Self respect, dignity
If that's all you got
Then you got all you need
And without that you don't have a thing

It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
You can't just talk the talk
You got to walk that walk, yes you do
It all means nothing
If you don't stand up for something
and I'll stand up for you
