Lyrics:
Chorus: Get out get out the vote… and let your voice be heard

If you believe in democracy and counting up every vote
Now the times to go to the polls, you’ll be sorry if you don’t

Chorus: Get out get out the vote… and let your voice be heard

Christine Blasey Ford came to testify
She raised up her right hand
Her words would shake the nation
Still the GOP confirmed their man
To the highest court in the land, so

Chorus: Get out get out the vote… and let your voice be heard

Let’s talk about global warming – cause we’re running out of time –
Forest fires and hurricanes, and politicians on big oil’s dime – doing climate crime

Chorus: Get out get out the vote… and let your voice be heard

Well we don’t want voter suppression
No biased voter purge
When election day finally rolls around
We’ll be there with a voter surge – everybody

Chorus: Get out get out the vote… and let your voice be heard
