The Times They Are A-Changin' Songtext
von Bob Dylan

The Times They Are A-Changin' Songtext

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 savin′
Then you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times, they are a-changin′

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

Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call
Don′t stand in the doorway, don′t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled
'Cause the battle outside ragin′
Will soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times, they are a-changin'

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don′t criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly aging
Please get out of the new one if you can′t lend your hand
'Cause the times, they are a-changin'

The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast
The slowest now will later be fast
As the present now will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin′
And the first one now will later be last
′Cause the times, they are a-changin'

danke bob dylan für den wahrscheinlich besten song den ich mir hätte für meine zeugnisvergabe wünschen können

Eigentlich komisch, dass sich in den 50 Jahren, die das Lied nun schon alt ist, noch kein Kommentar dafür gefunden hat.
