Lately things are comin’ undone
In the Land
That I Love- don’t you know it?
What went for all, now is only for some,
And there’s a fire in my heart, gonna show it!
Out on the street
there’s a movement afoot,
With our numbers growin’ every hour,
Alternative Facts, otherwise known as lies,
But The People shout Truth to Power!
We fight the good fight, and we’ll fight it every day,
First light to midnight, making each day count, ‘till the grifters
*Cast in the sunlight Seattle to Broadway,
Come fight the good fight, when the lines are drawn,
C1) Truth and Justice lead the way!
C 2 , 3,
4) We will lead the way!
Who taught you
to treat a woman like that?
Did you think you had the right ‘cause of wealth?
And Making America Hate like that,
Means the one you really hate must be yourself!
America loves it’s diversity, And hatred doesn’t live here any longer,
We celebrate our equality, ‘Cause differences between us make us stronger!
We’re not headin’
back to the Fifties,
Let’s build a bridge instead of a wall,
And handin’ power off to your cronies,
Think there’s no resistance?
You gotta another thing, You got another thing comin’!
* Cast in
the sunlight from Miami to Santa Fe
CHORUS 4 *Cast
in the sunlight Seattle to Broadway
