Written for Danny!

 

Chorus:

 

We the people

are the true source of the power

don't ever let them tell you that you're not

We the people

are the true source of the power

Don't ever surrender what you got

 

V1.

Policeman with his gun

judge with his gown

politicians with their hand out

from the president on down

all you people

who serve the Public Trust

need a civics lesson

your authortiy derives fromus

because

CHORUS

V2.

We the people

are the true source of the power

no matter what the polticians say

we the people

are the true source of the power

the Bill of Rights is not for sale today

 

To form a more perfect union

we must all come together

from all across the land

every type of person

no matter if you're rich or poor

or the colour of your skin

it's time we showed the powerful

the power of the citizen

 

chorus

 

Breakdown

 

You might be feeling powerless

locked out and alone

you might feel that there ain't athing

you can do on your own.

you gotta stop

you gotta rise up

stand up

stand up and be counted

Let them see your numbers

if you believe in peace and dignity

there's beauty in our liberty

show them that you're strong

show them that you're not alone

show them that this aint no joke

get up off your ass and vote (ed: that's danny's edit :-)

 

Chorus
