The Times Are Changing!



The Times They Are A-Changin

Come gather 'round people Come mothers and fathers
         Wherever you roam
Throughout the land
And admit that the waters And don't criticize
Around you have grown What you can't understand
And accept it that soon Your sons and your daughters
You'll be drenched to the bone Are beyond your command
If your time to you Your old road is
Is worth savin' Rapidly agin'
Then you better start swimmin' Please get out of the new one
Or you'll sink like a stone If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'. For the times they are a-changin'.
Come writers and critics The line it is drawn
Who prophesize with your pen The curse it is cast
And keep your eyes wide The slow one now
The chance won't come again Will later be fast
And don't speak too soon As the present now
For the wheel's still in spin Will later be past
And there's no tellin' who The order is
That it's namin' Rapidly fadin'
For the loser now And the first one now
Will be later to win Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'. 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'.
