The Times They Are A Changin'

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 the time to you is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing

Come writers and critics who prophesy with your pens
And keep your eyes wide, the chance won't come again
And don't speak to soon for the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
For the loser now may be later to win
For the times they are a changing

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorways, don't block up the hall
For those who get hurt will be those who have stalled
There's a battle outside and it's ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a changing

Come mothers and fathers thru out the land
And don't criticize what you don't understand
Your sons and your daughter are beyond your command
You old road is rapidly agin'
Please get out a new one if you can't lend a hand
For the times they are a changing

The line it is drawn the curse it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the present now will sooner be past
The order is rapidly fadin'
And the first one now will later be last
As the times they are a changing
