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-changin

come writers and critics who prophesize 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 its namin
for the loser now will be later to win
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

come mothers and fathers throughout the land
and don’t criticize what you cant 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 your 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
