Come gather round people wherever you roam

And admit that our country don’t feel like our home

And that silence speaks louder than those who condone

If a tweet to you is worth favin’

Then lift up your voices and put down your phones

For the times they are a-changin’


Come women and men who hashtag MeToo

And believe me when I say that we believe you

For weak is the man who calls truth “fake news”

Time’s up, our silence we’re breaking

And even though Mel Gibson was in “Daddy’s Home 2”

Well, the times they are a-changin’


Come athletes with platforms throughout the land

Who by taking a knee are taking a stand

And before you shout out that they should be banned

Listen to what they are saying

Perhaps they’d stand up if you reached out your hand

Well, the times they are a-changin’


Come journalists, writers who report the facts

And brandish your pen to fend off his attacks

Look past what he says and look at how he acts

The fire and fury is raging

For his words can hurt, but your words can fight back

New York Times, they aren’t a-failin’


Come leaders who bully like internet trolls

We’ll curse you with four-letter words “love” and “hope”

For we will go high even when you go low

The order is rearranging

For you have the power, but we have the vote

The times they are a-changin’
