You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world.
You tell me that it's evolution

Well, you know
We all want to change the world.
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out.

Don't you know it's going to be alright,
Don't you know it's going to be alright,
Don't you know it's going to be alright,
Well, alright

Everybody, Revolution!
Alright! alright, alright, alright, alright, 
Alright! alright, alright, alright
You say you got a real solution

Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan.
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can.

But if you want money for people with minds that hate,
All I can tell you brother you have to wait. 

Don't you know it's going to be alright
Don't you know it's going to be alright
Don't you know it's going to be alright
Well, alright

You say you'll change a constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head.
You tell me it's the institution

Well, you know
You better free your mind instead.
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao,
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow. 

Don't you know it's going to be alright
Don't you know it's going to be alright
Don't you know it's going to be alright
Well, alright
