Rock The Vote - Poem by Ramona Thompson

Parody of Kevin Rudolf's Let It Rock

I wanna see your faces
Show up in record numbers high
What you do that day will not be done in vein
These tough times are hard to swallow
We all must pray to God
We must try, try, try
Try to make a change
This is the time
If you don't take advantage
It will be a crime
Well, you'll make yoor choice
And I'll make mine

Because when at the polls we arrive
We can bring the fire
Make that change come alive
We can take this country higher
What is this, you forgot?
I must now remind you
Rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote

Now the Bush has disgraced
Just like his father before
Cursed our stock market
Turned, and tried to bail out the almightly dollar
But still it is broke
So to all he shrugs his shoulders and sticks his little finger
To the world
To the world
To the world
And now we must each take our turn
To stand in line
Well, you'll choose yours
I'll choose mine

Because when at the polls we arrive
We can bring the fire
Make that change come alive
We can take this country higher
What is this, you forgot?
I must now remind you
Rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote

Yeah!
Voter's world
Planet rock
Stock market's dropped
We must bring it back up to the tops
And we gonna keep on votin' till this mess stops
Politicians ain't no angels
But still we got no choice
We gotta to
Vote!
Get up in that voting booth, like what's up
America's number one mechanics, we can fix 'em up
We can build 'em up
We can tear all these bad times down
Shortys, we can do anything
Just pick your main man
Let your voices be heard
Don't be afraid to make that thunderous sound

Because when at the polls we arrive
We can bring the fire
Make that change come alive
We can take this country higher
What is this, you forgot?
I must now remind you
Rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote

Because when at the polls we arrive
We can bring the fire
Make that change come alive
We can take this country higher
What is this, you forgot?
I must now remind you
Rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote

Just rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote
Rock the vote, rock the vote

Please don't let another Bush come back like he forgot something
Cos he ain't nothin'
War lovin', greedy oil grabbin'
Bailing out all those fat cats
Not giving a about the rest of us struggling
Just to make ends meet
This time we gotta be our own saviors
Our aim perfect
Can't let 'em keep on bangin' ya
Period, here's the reminder

I wish you would't be no fool
And I wish you would listen to the things this song has to say
Cos you can't go on this way
Livin' nothin' but another empty lie
No, not this time
