Lyrics

THE PROTEST MAN

 

A pipeline has burst at the seams

Another hippie has climbed up a tree

What we all need is a protest song

 

The answer’s more boots on the ground

A boy doesn’t move in the water face down

Ain’t it something that we can’t get along?

 

The Protest Man doesn’t believe

In prayers, thoughts or hashtags or any such things

What he will do is pick up his guitar

 

He’ll sing a song for the poor and the aged and the trees

La, La’s…

 

School children pumped full of lead

Missiles treat concrete like pieces of bread

Can you even stand to watch the news?

 

The Protest Man doesn’t believe

In prayers, thoughts or hashtags or any such things

What he will do is pick up his guitar

 

He’ll sing a song for the poor and the aged and the trees

La, La’s…

He’ll sing a song for the whales and the sick and the bees

La, La’s…

THE PROTEST MAN

 

A pipeline has burst at the seams

Another hippie has climbed up a tree

The answer’s more boots on the ground

A boy doesn’t move in the water face down

Ain’t it something that we can’t get along?

 

The Protest Man doesn’t believe

In prayers, thoughts or hashtags or any such things

What he will do is pick up his guitar

 

He’ll sing a song for the poor and the aged and the trees

La, La’s…

 

School children pumped full of lead

Missiles treat concrete like pieces of bread

Can you even stand to watch the news?

 

The Protest Man doesn’t believe

What he will do is pick up his guitar

 

He’ll sing a song for the poor and the aged and the trees

La, La’s…

He’ll sing a song for the whales and the sick and the bees

La, La’s…
