The Times They Are A-Changin’

By Bob Dylan (with updating by Howard Rotberg)


Come gather ’round boomers

Leave your million dollar homes

And admit that the freedoms left to you

Have all been blown

And accept that the cancel culture

Contaminated your computers and Iphones

If your grandchildren’s freedom is worth savin’

And you better stop your woke elitism

Or you’ll be buried quite alone

For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics

Who lie with your pens

And who support the intersectionalists

The chance won’t come again

And don’t speak too soon

As Biden/Harris take us in a downward spin

And there’s no tellin’ who facebook and twitter

Will be banning and shunning next

For the loser now

Will be later to win

For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Forget about fake commissions

Your tales are quite tall

For we know that there are no “insurrections”

When no weapons have been installed

The battle outside is ragin’

We have more to fear from BLM bombs

Than unarmed patriots climbing walls

For the times they are a-changin’

Come CNN and the New York Times

And Neil Young with your stoned band

Don’t criticize

What you can’t understand

Your sons and your daughters

Hate CRT and your educators’commands

Your tolerance of communism is rapidly agin’

Please close down woke pricey colleges

If they reject freedom’s hand

For the times they are a-changin’

The line for law and order is drawn

Your bail reform’s curse it is cast

The slow patriots now

Will later be fast

As the open borders present now

Will later be past

The new world order is rapidly fadin’

And the “Squad”that seems unstoppable

Will later finish last

For the times they are a-changin’
