Come gather ‘round people, we want you to hear
about the new laws, they are something to fear
Politicians denying our freedoms, it’s clear
and the damage they do is wide-ranging
Say good-bye to the rights that we women hold dear
For the laws, they are a-changing

Young women who grew up with freedoms don’t know
how barbaric it gets under right-wing control
Those of us who lived through it, our battle scars show:
there’s a reason for all of this raging
Now you’d better get active, or you’re gonna lose Roe!
For the laws, they are a-changing

So men, rest assured, it’s not vengeance we seek
We’re not asking for payback but equality
And just like yourselves, we demand to be free
So you see, we’re not acting so strangely
We are righteous and fair and you all must agree
that our rights must not be cha-a-nging!
