Come gather 'round people wherever you may roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
Admit that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is a savin'
Well, you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing

Come writers and critics who prophecize with your pen
Keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
Don't speak too soon for the wheels still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times, they are a changing

Come sailors and congressman, please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway, don't blacken the hall
For he who has lost is he who has all
There's a storm outside and it's ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows, it'll rattle your walls
For the times, they are a changing

It'll soon shake your windows and it'll rattle your walls
For the times, they are a changing

Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
Don't criticize what you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
And your old road is rapidly agin'
So get outta here or if you can lend a hand
For the times they are a-changing

Come gather 'round people wherever you may roam
Admit that the waters around you have grown
Admit that soon you'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is a savin'
Well, you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a changing
For the times they are a changing
