I’m Votin’ Green
A political rally song

By Carl Lungren, Green Party of New York State

CHORUS:  I’m votin’ Green this year
Vote my hopes and not my fears
I know there’s got to be a better way
I’m votin’ Green this time
Our future’s on the line
So come and join me on Election Day

I’m votin’ for the values that mean the most to me
Rooted in the principles of democracy
Of peace and social justice, and of course, ecology
That’s where I stand
Those are my demands

CHORUS:  I’m votin’ Green for change
It’s time to rearrange
The way we order our priorities
I’m votin’ Green for sure
For a world that will endure
For a life that’s filled with possibilities

It surely is a shame when all we ever have to choose
Is the lesser of two evils, y’know we’re bound to lose
I won’t make that mistake again, gonna kick these votin’ blues
And make my choice
For another voice

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

I’m tired of the liars and the hypocrisy,
Of the two-faced, double talking, double dealing duopoly
I’d rather hold my head up high and keep my dignity
Than vote for them
Ever again

CHORUS:  Let’s all vote Green this year
Vote your hopes and not your fears
Y’know there’s got to be a better way
Let’s all vote Green this time
Our future’s on the line
So come and join us on Election Day

And vote Green all the way
