The Byrds

The Byrds
The Times They Are A Changing

Come gather round people wherever you roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
Accept it that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth saving
Then you better start swimming
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen
Keep your eyes open the chance won't come again
And watch what you say for the wheel's still in spin
There ain't telling who that it's naming
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a changing

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway, don't block up the hall
For he who gets hurt will be he who has stalled
The battle outside raging
It'll rattle your windows
And shake down your walls
For the times they are a changing

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don't criticise what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly aging
Get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a changing
