Months of sleeping well past noon and living responsibility-free suddenly turning into 6:30 a.m. wakeup calls seems like a form of cruel and unusual punishment. For the late-risers, sometimes that cup of coffee in the morning just isn’t enough to get you ready to hit the books. For a little extra motivation to jumpstart the day, this Goodie Mob-aided OutKast cut, “Git Up, Git Out,” is the remedy.

The timeless song, off of OutKast’s 1994 debut album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, sends a reminder that laying around all day in bed is no way to get ahead of the competition. For those of you thinking of playing hookie or cutting class early in the year, let CeeLo Green try and dissuade you: “You need to git up/git out/cut that bullshit out/Ain’t you sick and tired of having to do without?”
