  2. “Come senators, congressmen
    Please heed the call
    Don’t stand in the doorway
    Don’t block up the hall
    For he that gets hurt
    Will be he who has stalled
    There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’.
    It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
    For the times they are a-changin’.”
