TIME FOR A CHANGE / Susan B. Shann / © 2008 / Mystics Mantra Music, ASCAP

Mama can’t feed her babies working for minimum wage
And if it’s up to the boys on Capitol Hill, you know, she might not ever get a raise
It’s time for a change

A young man wants to go to college, and he knows he’s got what it takes
So, why should his dream seem so out of reach
Just because he can’t afford to pay
It’s time for a change

You can see it in their faces, hear it in the check-out lines
A revolution’s in the air, it’s people everywhere
Like you and me, saying “Don’t you think it’s time?”
Time for a change

You can see it in their faces, hear it in the check-out line
A revolution’s in the air, it’s people everywhere
Like you and me, saying “Don’t you think it’s time?”

A soldier out in the desert, writes home to the ones she loves
“I miss you more than I can say, and every night I pray
We’ll end this madness, say “Enough is enough!”
It’s time for a change” (time for a change)
Oh, it’s time, it’s time (time for a change)
Don’t you think it’s time (time for a change…)
Yeah, yeah… you know it
A revolution’s in the air
It’s people everywhere like you and me
Saying “oh, it’s time, it’s time”
Mm hmm…
I know, I know, I know
It’s time for a change
