My generation like
We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' dance all day
He gon' vote Taylor Swift, she gon' vote Kanye, yeah, yeah
Election time is coming

We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' party all day
She gon' vote U2, he gon' vote Coldplay, play, play
Election time is coming

Immigration, socialism, capitalism, racism
Health care, welfare, seems like nobody cares
Big business, corporation, small business, taxation
Unemployment, education, my generation

Built a space station so when you google earth
You can see all the Haitians as they rebuild their nation
With fair trade, everybody trades
You trade, I trade and everybody gets paid

Election time around the corner
Who you gon' vote for?
We're okay
Election time around the corner
What you gon' fight for?
We're okay

Election time around the corner
Who you gon' vote for?
We're okay
Election time is coming
Do you want peace or war?

Alternative energy or oil in your SUV
Tell me what you're looking for, we about to have it all
Gun control, infrastructure, agriculture, manufacturer
Hip Hop, be my culture, tell me what you think about us

Technology and foreign policy
I need the bailout money to stimulate economy
Raised on family values, my life be my testament
King had a dream and you too can be the president

Election time around the corner
Who you gon' vote for?
We're okay
Election time around the corner
What you gon' fight for?
We're okay

Election time around the corner
Who you gon' vote for?
We're okay
Election time is coming
Do you want peace or war?

But the kids like
We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' dance all day
He gon' vote Taylor Swift, she gon' vote Kanye, yeah, yeah
Election time is coming

But the kids like
We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' party all day
She gon' vote U2, he gon' vote Coldplay, play, play
Election time is coming

You know what?
What?
Why don't you take some of that stuff I grew up on
You know what I'm talkin' about?
[Incomprehensible]

Gramps was a voodoo priest, Dad was a preacher
Uncle was a Mason, I was raised Christian
Best friend, Muslim, al-salam-alakum
My manager was Jewish, he taught me Shabbat Shalom

Flatbush Rastas taught me the scriptures
Haile Selassie, Marcus Garvey
Saint L'ouverture, Haitian Revolution
Napoleon's Army got spanked by them Haitians

Toussaint St. Jean with the info
Did you know that a Haitian founded Chicago?
If I was president
The first thing I would do is get my people out them tents

Election time is coming
My generation like
We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' dance all day
He gon' vote Taylor Swift, she gon' vote Kanye, yeah, yeah
Election time is coming

But the kids like
We're okay
As long as we got music, we gon' party all day
She gon' vote U2, he gon' vote Coldplay, play, play
Election time is coming

I wanna thank you all for coming to see me here
You could have been anywhere
But you've chosen to come to the Haitian Experience to see us
I go by the name of Wyclef Jean, straight from Haiti
And that's my brother Steph on the drums
