America For the People

Democracy is under siege: our very right to vote
imperiled by Republicans – the lies that they promote!
   America, America, don’t let corruption win!
   Unite and fight for voting rights. Together we must win!

If all the citizens can vote, Republicans will lose.
They know their policies are trash that voters just won’t choose.
   And so they scam and rig and cheat, and purge the voter rolls,
   and gerrymander and restrict our access to the polls

So Senators, now do your job – democracy’s at stake!
We need the For the People Act – right now, for freedom’s sake!
   America, America, don’t let obstruction win
   Unite and fight for voting rights. Together we must win!
