The Times, They Are A-Changin' - 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 chang-in'

    Come writers and critics who prophecies 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 mothers and fathers throughout the land
    And don't criticize what you don'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 a hand
    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's ragin'
    It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
    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'
