Marian On The Steps


        Hey, so they turned you down; don't let them push you back that way.

        Hey, you can turn it around-- I know you've got something to say.

                If you want to talk about it, I want to talk about it, too…


                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           You gotta think "What would Marian do?"

                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           Don't let nobody take that freedom from you.



        Hey, it's a risk that you take when you raise your voice out loud.

        Hey, it's a choice that we make to reach up out from the crowd.

                And we don't have to fight about it, we can work it out if we want to…



                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           You gotta think "What would Marian do?"

                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           Don't let nobody take that freedom from you.




                     My country 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty,

                     Home of the brave & land of the free;

                     But it don't mean a thing if you can't stand and sing.




        Hey, we can find a way to make our voices heard;

        Hey, it's a lovely day to stake your place in the world.

                And if you want to sing about it, I want to sing along with you.



                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           You gotta think "What would Marian do?"

                           You gotta sing like Marian on the steps,

                           Don't let nobody take that freedom from you.
