You won’t have a “ticket to ride”
If you stay on the side
Everything’s not ‘gonna be all right’
If you stay home and lose sight
Guarantee “no satisfaction”
If you don’t take action
It will be “all she wrote”
If you don’t get out and vote.
The “change you want to see”
Starts with one person, me
On this day there is neither rich nor poor
So “Don’t go knockin’ on my door”
“A change is gonna come” our way
“Get up, Stand Up” on Election Day!
Apologies to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Gandhi, Brittany Spears, Aretha, Bob Marley
