PHIL COLLINS


The Times They Are A-changin' Lyrics

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 you is worth saving,
Then you'd better start swimming,
Or you will sink like a stone,
For the times, they are a-changin'.

Come, writers and critics who prophecise with your pen,
And keep your eyes wide. The chance won't come again.
And don't speak too soon
'Cause the wheel's still in spin
And there's no telling who that it's naming.
For the loser now will be later to win,
For the times, they are a-changin'.

Come, senators, congressmen, please heed the call.
Don't you dare stand in the doorways.
Don't you block off the hall.
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled.
There's a battle outside and it's raging.
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls,
For the times, they are a-changin'.
Yes, they are a-changin'.

Come, mothers and fathers throughout the land,
Oh, and don't you dare criticize
What you cannot understand.
Your sons and your daughters,
They're beyond your command.
Well, your old road is rapidly aging.
Please get out of the new one
If you cannot lend a hand,
For the times, they are a-changin'.

Oh, the line, it is drawn. The curse, it is cast.
And you know the slow one now will later be fast,
As the present now will later be past.
Well, the order is rapidly fading.
And the first one now will later be last,
For the times, they are a-changin'.
Yes, they're a-changin'.

Come gather 'round, gather 'round.
Come gather 'round, people, wherever you roam,
And accept it that, soon,
You will be drenched to the bone.
Then you better start swimming,
Or you're gonna sink like a stone,
For the times, they are a-changin'.
