‘Woke’ — Lyrics To An Anti-Trump Folk Protest Song

I have no idea how good these lyrics are. I just enjoy writing and trying my hand at writing lyrics. So, maybe this will suck. But I have some stuff I need to get off my chest and so I do it in lyrics. This would be a folk song, at least in my head.

Woke

get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke

woke

America is in flames
Trump come at last
the system has failed us that’s a fact
so now we got to get out of bed
fight the fight again
fight the fight again

get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke

woke

be the power that’s all I ask
we’ve got a fight ahead of us
one that transcends party
we’ve got to stop pointing fingers
start to strike back
start to strike back
start to strike back

get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke
get woke stay woke

woke

[bridge]
be the leader you know you can be
take this journey to freedom
don’t be afraid
this struggle will be won
just a matter of getting it done

don’t be afraid
things will break out way
and in the end
you’ll have your claim to fame
