Lena Horne – Now! lyrics
If those historic gentlemen came back today
Jefferson, Washington and Lincoln
And Walter Cronkite put them on channel 2
To find out what they were thinkin'

I'm sure they'd say
Thanks for quoting us so much
But we don't want to take a bow

Enough with the quoting
Put those words into action
And we mean action now

Now is the moment
Now is the moment
Come on, we've put it off long enough

Now, no more waiting
No hesitatin'
Now, now
Come on let's get some of that stuff

It's there for you and me
For every he and she
Just wanna do what's right
Constitutionally

I went and took a look
In my old history book
It's there in black and white
For all to see

Now, now,
Now, now, now, now

Everyone should love his brother
People all should love each other
Just don't take it literal, mister
No one wants to grab your sister

Now is the time
Now is the time

Now is the moment
Now is the moment
Come on, we've put it off long enough

Now, no more waiting
No hesitatin'
Now, now
Come on let's get some of that stuff

It's there for you and me
For every he and she
Just wanna do what's right
Constitutionally

I went and took a look
In my old history book
It's there in black and white
For all to see

Now, now,
Now, now, now, now, now,
Now
Now, now, now, now,

The message of this song's not subtle
No discussion, no rebuttal
We want more than just a promise
Say goodbye to Uncle Thomas
Call me naпve
Still I believe
We're created free and equal,
Now
Now
Now, now, now, now

Everyone should love his brother
People all should love each other
Since they say we all got rhythm
Come on, let's share our rhythm with 'em

Now is the time
Now is the time
The time is nowwwwww
