Appropriate Words to Wake Up To

I have my clock radio set to wake me up every morning, and I never know
what the first thing I hear will be.   Well, today when the radio came on, the
song "Boogie Oogie Oogie" was playing, and the very first words I heard were:
"Get on up!"
So I started the day with a good laugh.
