"Thanks to J Mayer for the inspiration." John
I heard a young man singing about waiting for a change
Just a-sitting on the sidelines, hoping things get re-arranged
I can understand the feeling, being doubtful, feeling gray
But thereís a reason youth is restless and thatís all I got to say

It was over 50 years go Ms. Rosa climbed the bus
She decided there and then that day that she'd had enough
Well, it's a free country, you can say what you say
But, if she'd been waiting she'd be standing to-, standing to-, standing today

Now is the time
This is the place
If you don't stand will there be anybody?

Raise up your hands
Stand face-to-face
Donít waste the chance that youíve been waiting for
Change

For every minute, itís not how you spin it
Youíre either in it or youíre looking on
Whatever you make it, itís yours for the taking
You got to be strong

There's never been a fair fight and thereís never gonna be
Those getting busy now are going to write our history
Those who wait for change gonna go to their grave
Just a singing the same old song 'bout waiting for, waiting for, waiting for change

Now is the time
This is the place
If you don't stand will there be anybody?

Raise up your hands
Stand face-to-face
Donít waste the chance that youíve been waiting for
Change
