Everybody Let’s Go

Baby, I was there when the world got scared just thinkin’ about it
No matter you voted, no matter how devoted, now you’re thinkin’ about it
Thirsty as I was, I’m beginning to see
what they did in Boston with the best of the tea
Maybe I rant, but baby, I can’t stop thinkin’ about it

Loose lips, loose cannon, I don’t know what happened, but I’m startin’ to doubt it
I used to go for years without looking in the mirror, now I can’t live without it
Baby, if you want the change, take it from me:
Difference is dangerous and no guarantee
Still, if you want the news, then you’re gonna have to do somethin’ about it

Blacktop
Rubber meet the road
Last stop
Everybody go

Hey! Ho! Everybody let’s go!

Down through the ages, flip through the pages, tell me about it
Different faces, different places, tell me about it
Stonewall to Selma to Seneca Falls
History is written when you take up the cause
Choice and a vote, a voice in your throat, now I want you to shout it

Blacktop
Rubber meet the road
Last stop
Everybody go

Hey! Ho! Everybody let’s go!

Love your enemies, make ‘em weak in the knees, and kill ‘em with kindness
An eye for an eye, the truth for a lie will finally blind us
Meet ‘em with a tough mind and tender heart
Be the change you wanna see to set you apart
Baby, I don’t know, but I’m ready go out and see what’ll find us

Blacktop
Rubber meet the road
I can’t stop
Everybody go

Hey! Ho! Everybody let’s go!

(January/February 2017 – for Debra Rodman, Delegate, VA House 73 District)
