Lyrics Get Out The Vote - full version

Get out Get out the vote
and let your voice be heard!

Well it wasn't very long ago, down in Florida state
A whole lot of good people's votes weren't counted
Supreme court ruled it was too late so...

Get out the vote... and let your voice be heard

Well if you believe in Democracy,
and counting up every vote
now's the time to take this country back
from the folks who don't, so

Get out the vote ... and let your voice be heard!

 

What's that you say -you also want rock songs relevant to the election?
