Stand with me at the protest edge
And listen to the speaker’s words.
Carry a banner that says you care,
And sing old gospel songs!
Scream “Hands up” with thunderous cries
That echo through all suburbs!
Send a message loud and clear,
Our nation must change forever.
There is no excuse for what was done
George Floyd has gone to heaven.
Give us the life that all should have,
Equality is not an option!
