Times They Are A-Changin'
by Simon & Garfunkel



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
Is worth savin
They you better start swimmin
Or youll 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 wont come again
And dont speak too soon
For the wheels still in spin
And theres no tell 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
Dont stand in the doorway
Dont block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he that 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
All over the land
And dont 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 cant 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
And the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin.
The first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin

For the times they are a-changin
