    Blowin’ In The Wind | WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

    How many roads must a man walk down

    Before you call him a man?

    Yes, ’n’ how many seas must a white dove sail

    Before she sleeps in the sand?

    Yes, ’n’ how many times must the cannonballs fly

    Before they’re forever banned?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind

    The answer is blowin’ in the wind

     

    How many years can a mountain exist

    Before it’s washed to the sea?

    Yes, ’n’ how many years can some people exist

    Before they’re allowed to be free?

    Yes, ’n’ how many times can a man turn his head

    Pretending he just doesn’t see?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind

    The answer is blowin’ in the wind

     

    How many times must a man look up

    Before he can see the sky?

    Yes, ’n’ how many ears must one man have

    Before he can hear people cry?

    Yes, ’n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows

    That too many people have died?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind

    The answer is blowin’ in the wind

    Come To Mama | LADY GAGA

    Everybody's got to love each other

    Stop throwin' stones at your sisters and your brothers

    Man, it wasn't that long ago, we were all living in the jungle

    So why do we gotta put each other down?

    When there's more than enough love to go, g-g-go around

     

    Come to mama

    Tell me who hurt ya

    There's gonna be no future

    If we don't figure this out

     

    Dude in a labcoat and a man of God

    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)

    Fought over prisms and a forty-day flood

    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)

     

    Well, I say rainbows did more than they've ever done

    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

    So why do we gotta fight over ideas?

    Psychic guru catches minnows in the harbor

    (Come onto mama, come on, mama)

    Everyone tells him he should work a little harder

    (Come onto mama -- hey, man, get to work)

    (Come on, mama -- catch 'em)

    They all tell you that freedom must be bought

    But baby, he's already caught them

    So why do we gotta tell each other how to live?

    The only prisons that exist are ones we put each other in

    Eat Your Greens | Kate Kitchen

    Eat your greens

    Eat your greens

    You better remember to eat your greens

     

    No more sugar

    No more fat

    And you know why it’s called that

     

    Eat your beans and legumes

    Lots of veggies, even prunes

     

    Just remember to eat your greens

     

    No more cages

    No more hooks

    No more cows dirty looks

     

    If organic all the better

    And if you save the mutton

    I will knit you a sweater

     

    Just remember to eat your greens

     

    I mean spinach, kale and head lettuce

    Boston Bibb and all the rest

    But if you want my opinion,

    Romaine is the best.

     

    You may decide to grow your own

    Without round up or DDT

    In raised beds

    Or on your balcony

     

    Mmmm…I remember why I eat my greens

     

    You may go wild

    With ramps and wild flowers (collards)

    And then you will be feeling empowered

     

    While you are eating your greens

     

    Add some carrots and tomatoes

    (And whatever catches your fancy)

    Maybe an onion, sprouts  or a radish

     

    Toss ‘em together

    And you’ll be glad to eat your greens

     

    Eat your greens

    Eat your greens

     

    Even your ice cream can be green

     

    Then you’ll remember to eat your greens

    Hallelujah | Leonard Cohen

    Well I heard there was a secret chord

    That David played and it pleased the Lord

    But you don't really care for music, do you?

    Well it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth

    The minor fall and the major lift

    The baffled king composing

     

    Hallelujah [x4]

     

    Your faith was strong but you needed proof

    You saw her bathing on the roof

    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

    She tied you to her kitchen chair

    She broke your throne and she cut your hair

    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

     

    Hallelujah [x4]

     

    Baby I've been here before

    I've seen this room and I've walked this floor (you know)

    I used to live alone before I knew you

    And I've seen your flag on the marble arch

    And love is not a victory march

    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

     

    Hallelujah [x4] . . .

    I Am Woman

    I am woman, hear me roar

    In numbers too big to ignore

    And I know too much to go back an' pretend

    'Cause I've heard it all before

    And I've been down there on the floor

    No one's ever gonna keep me down again

     

    Oh yes, I am wise

    But it's wisdom born of pain

    Yes, I've paid the price

    But look how much I gained

    If I have to, I can do anything

    I am strong

    (Strong)

    I am invincible

    (Invincible)

    I am woman

     

    You can bend but never break me

    'Cause it only serves to make me

    More determined to achieve my final goal

    And I come back even stronger

    Not a novice any longer

    'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul

     

    Oh yes, I am wise

    But it's wisdom born of pain

    Yes, I've paid the price

    But look how much I gained

    If I have to, I can do anything

    I am strong

    (Strong)

    I am invincible

    (Invincible)

     

    I am woman

    I am woman watch me grow

    See me standing toe to toe

    As I spread my lovin' arms across the land

    But I'm still an embryo

    With a long, long way to go

    Until I make my brother understand

     

    Oh yes, I am wise

    But it's wisdom born of pain

    Yes, I've paid the price

    But look how much I gained

    If I have to, I can face anything

    I am strong

    (Strong)

    I am invincible

    (Invincible)

    I am woman

    I am woman

    I am invincible

    I am strong

    I am woman

    I am invincible

    I am strong

    I am woman

    If I Had a Hammer | Pete Seeger and Lee Hays

    If I had a hammer,

    I'd hammer in the morning

    I'd hammer in the evening,

    All over this land.

    I'd hammer out danger,

    I'd hammer out a warning,

    I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters,

    All over this land.

     

    If I had a bell,

    I'd ring it in the morning,

    I'd ring it in the evening,

    All over this land.

    I'd ring out danger,

    I'd ring out a warning

    I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters,

    All over this land.

     

    If I had a song,

    I'd sing it in the morning,

    I'd sing it in the evening,

    All over this land.

    I'd sing out danger,

    I'd sing out a warning

    I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters,

    All over this land.

     

    Well I got a hammer,

    And I got a bell,

    And I got a song to sing, all over this land.

    It's the hammer of Justice,

    It's the bell of Freedom,

    It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters,

    All over this land.

    It's the hammer of Justice,

    It's the bell of Freedom,

    It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters,

    All over this land.

    Masters Of War | WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

    Come you masters of war

    You that build all the guns

    You that build the death planes

    You that build the big bombs

    You that hide behind walls

    You that hide behind desks

    I just want you to know

    I can see through your masks

     

    You that never done nothin’

    But build to destroy

    You play with my world

    Like it’s your little toy

    You put a gun in my hand

    And you hide from my eyes

    And you turn and run farther

    When the fast bullets fly

     

    Like Judas of old

    You lie and deceive

    A world war can be won

    You want me to believe

    But I see through your eyes

    And I see through your brain

    Like I see through the water

    That runs down my drain

     

    You fasten the triggers

    For the others to fire

    Then you set back and watch

    When the death count gets higher

    You hide in your mansion

    As young people’s blood

    Flows out of their bodies

    And is buried in the mud

     

    You’ve thrown the worst fear

    That can ever be hurled

    Fear to bring children

    Into the world

    For threatening my baby

    Unborn and unnamed

    You ain’t worth the blood

    That runs in your veins

     

    How much do I know

    To talk out of turn

    You might say that I’m young

    You might say I’m unlearned

    But there’s one thing I know

    Though I’m younger than you

    Even Jesus would never

    Forgive what you do

     

    Let me ask you one question

    Is your money that good

    Will it buy you forgiveness

    Do you think that it could

    I think you will find

    When your death takes its toll

    All the money you made

    Will never buy back your soul

     

    And I hope that you die

    And your death’ll come soon

    I will follow your casket

    In the pale afternoon

    And I’ll watch while you’re lowered

    Down to your deathbed

    And I’ll stand o’er your grave

    ’Til I’m sure that you’re dead

    The Times They Are A-Changin’ | WRITTEN BY: BOB DYLAN

    Come gather ’round people

    Wherever you roam

    And admit that the waters

    Around you have grown

    And accept it that soon

    You’ll be drenched to the bone

    If your time to you is worth savin’

    Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone

    For the times they are a-changin’

     

    Come writers and critics

    Who prophesize with your pen

    And keep your eyes wide

    The chance won’t come again

    And don’t speak too soon

    For the wheel’s still in spin

    And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’

    For the loser now will be later to win

    For the times they are a-changin’

     

    Come senators, congressmen

    Please heed the call

    Don’t stand in the doorway

    Don’t block up the hall

    For he that gets hurt

    Will be he who has stalled

    There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’

    It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls

    For the times they are a-changin’

     

    Come mothers and fathers

    Throughout the land

    And don’t criticize

    What you can’t understand

    Your sons and your daughters

    Are beyond your command

     

    Your old road is rapidly agin’

    Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

    For the times they are a-changin’

     

    The line it is drawn

    The curse it is cast

    The slow one now

    Will later be fast

    As the present now

    Will later be past

    The order is rapidly fadin’

    And the first one now will later be last

    For the times they are a-changin’

    "Universal Soldier" | Buffy Sainte-Marie

    He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,

    He fights with missiles and with spears.

    He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,

    Been a soldier for a thousand years.

     

    He'a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,

    A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.

    And he knows he shouldn't kill,

    And he knows he always will,

    Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

     

    And he's fighting for Canada,

    He's fighting for France,

    He's fighting for the USA,

    And he's fighting for the Russians,

    And he's fighting for Japan,

    And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

     

    And he's fighting for Democracy,

    He's fighting for the Reds,

    He says it's for the peace of all.

    He's the one who must decide,

    Who's to live and who's to die,

    And he never sees the writing on the wall.

     

    But without him,

    How would Hitler have condemned them at Dachau?

    Without him Caesar would have stood alone,

    He's the one who gives his body

    As a weapon of the war,

    And without him all this killing can't go on.

     

    He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,

    His orders come from far away no more,

    They come from here and there and you and me,

    And brothers can't you see,

    This is not the way we put the end to war.

    Democrats Abroad Stands Together with Women’s March on Washington (WMW), Saturday, January 21, 2017

    Democrats Abroad invites you to stand together - in solidarity with our partners and children - for the protection of our human rights, our safety, our health, and our families. Over 150,000 people have said they plan to attend the Women's March on Washington and over 1,000 buses are headed to DC.*  Sister marches are being held in cities around the US and the world - including many here in Canada!

    We need to march in great numbers because we are Stronger Together! Let's rally in solidarity with hundreds of thousands around the world, one day after the Presidential inauguration, to say loud and clear that discrimination will not be tolerated and demand protection for everyone's rights and civil liberties.

    Be part of this historic event on January 21, 2017! Join one of the many solidarity marches taking place in cities throughout Canada.  Find the city nearest you on the list below (along with applicable meet-up and contact information for your local DA Chapter).

    *Democrats Abroad Canada's chartered bus to Washington DC for the WMW is full, but there's still time to sign up for tickets on one of the buses to DC from either Toronto, Windsor, Kingston, London, Ottawa or Montreal with the Canadian Women's March.

    If you're going to DC, email events-toronto@democratsabroad.ca for details about our meet-up place and DA Dinner reservations.

    Mission of the Women's March on Washington (WMW) Organizers

    On January 21, 2017, we will unite in Washington, D.C. for the Women's March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families, recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. Everyone is Invited - WMW is for any person, regardless of gender or gender identity, who believes women's rights are human rights.

    Status of Permits and March Route

    The location of the WMW has been approved by an inter-agency task force. People will gather at the intersection of Independence Ave and Third St SW near the U.S. Capitol, beginning at 10:00 AM on Saturday, January 21, 2017.
