“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’/So you better start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone /or 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 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/The battle outside ragin’/Will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls/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’/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.'”
