The times they are a-changin

If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.
