Lyrics at end

(Category ‘Blasts from the past’ for more trips down memory lane)

Call out the instigators
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Lock up the streets and houses
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Hand out the arms and ammo
We’re going to blast our way through here
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here, and you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

      1. I ummed and erred about lyrics then thought some people might be interested. When you think about it most times we only catch a few words which doesn’t seem right. Lyrics are an important and integral part of any song. So decided to include them. I’m discovering a lot myself…..
