You say you want a revolution 
Well, you know 
We all want to change the world 
You tell me that it's evolution 
Well, you know 
We all want to change the world 
But when you talk about destruction 
Don't you know that you can count me out 
Don't you know it's gonna be all right 
all right, all right 
 
You say you got a real solution 
Well, you know 
We'd all love to see the plan 
You ask me for a contribution 
Well, you know 
We're doing what we can 
But when you want money 
for people with minds that hate 
All I can tell is brother you have to wait 
Don't you know it's gonna be all right 
all right, all right 
Ah 
 
ah, ah, ah, ah, ah... 
 
You say you'll change the constitution 
Well, you know 
We all want to change your head 
You tell me it's the institution 
Well, you know 
You better free you mind instead 
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao 
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow 
Don't you know it's gonna be all right 
all right, all right 
all right, all right, all right 
all right, all right, all right
