Lysistrata Jones the Musical - Change the World Lyrics


(Patti Murin and girls)

LYSISTRATA:
Don't you hear the whisp'ring in the air?
Don't you hear it saying "stand up, time to care"?
Don't you feel a little tingling in your soul?
Well now the time has come to take it out of cruise control

Don't you see that there could be another way?
Don't you see that this is so not okay?
We could change the situation,
We could shake the foundation, oh yeah!
Into fire we are hurled,
Why don't we change the world?

C'mon, c'mon,

LYSISTRATA and GIRLS:
C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon!

LYSISTRATA:
Don't you want a little taste of victory?
Aren't you sick of all this mediocrity?
Don't you wanna stand tall, be all that we can be,
Fin'lly take control, control our destiny?

Follow me and say goodbye to what has been,
Follow me and we are so gonna win!
We're gonna change the situation,
We're gonna shake the foundation.
Into fire we are hurled,
We're gonna change the world!

C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon!

We're gonna change the way things go now,
We're gonna smash the status quo now,
They're gonna really get down,
We're gonna change the world!

C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon!
C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon!

All it takes is a little sacrifice,
No more playing nicey-nice,

Why even bother when we know they're gonna lose

Sit down, Debby Downer, cuz girl I've got the news:

Women from, like, long ago
Shut their legs and just said no
We're holding hands with history
Now it's your turn to pledge with me!

Sister to sister, I promise to be strong

GIRLS:
Sister to sister, I promise to be strong

LYSISTRATA:
No matter how hard, no matter how long.

GIRLS:
No matter how hard, no matter how long.

LYSISTRATA:
I hold the power, I hold the key!

GIRLS:
I hold the power, I hold the key!

LYSISTRATA:
I won't give it up,

GIRLS:
I won't give it up,

LYSISTRATA:
I guarantee!

GIRLS: I guarantee!

LYSISTRATA and GIRLS:
Fight, fight, fight fight fight!
We're gonna move it, shake it, and take it to the street
We're gonna shoot it, and make it, a team that can't be beat!

One, two, three, four,
What'd you say?
We're gonna win a game today!
Go Athens, go Athens, go Athens,
Fight, fight!

LYSISTRATA:
We will be the salvation!

GIRLS:
Move it, and shake it, and take it to the street!

LYSISTRATA:
We will make a transformation, oh yeah!

GIRLS:
We're gonna shoot it, and make it, a team that can't be beat!

LYSISTRATA:
Into fire we are hurled!

GIRLS:
One, two, three, four, what'd you say?
We're gonna change the world today!

LYSISTRATA:
We're gonna change the world!

GIRLS:
Go Athens, go Athens, go Athens,
Fight, fight!
Move it, and shake it, and take it to the street!

LYSISTRATA:
We will change the way things go now, oh yeah!

GIRLS:
We're gonna shoot it, and make it, a team that can't be beat!
One, two, three, four, what'd you say?
We're gonna change the world today!
We're gonna change the world today!

LYSISTRATA:
We're gonna change the world!

GIRLS:
We're gonna change the world today!
We're gonna change the world today!
We're gonna change the world today!

LYSISTRATA:
We're gonna change the world!

GIRLS:
Go Athens, go Athens, go Athens,
Fight, fight!
