Every Vote Counts-LYRICS to HEY DUDE!

Hey dude, I know it’s bad.
But it won’t BE long before it’s better.The 6th of November grants a new start.
Vote and your heartache will soon get better.

Hey dude, don’t be afraid.
You weren’t swayed like the votes for Brett were.The men that resolved to vote him in,
will wipe off their grin when we make it better.

And any time you feel the pain, hey dude, maintain.
It gets more absurd as they get bolder.But well you know that it’s their age that turns the page.
Those obsolete men can’t get much older.
And they say, “Blah blah blah blah blah blah.”

Hey dude, let’s stay afloat.
Go out and vote for, the new trend setters.
November is when you’ll do your part.
Then we can start to make it better.

So vote some out and vote some in, hey dude, begin.
You’re waiting for someone to come join you.
And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey dude, you’ll do.
The movement we need is on your shoulder.

While they say, “Blah blah blah blah blah blah.”
Hey dude, I know it’s bad.
But it won’t be long before it’s better.
The 6th of November grants a new start.
Vote and your heartache will soon get better.

Paul McCartney Hey Jude“Hey Jude” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The ballad evolved from “Hey Jules”, a song McCartney wrote to comfort John Lennon’s son, Julian, during his parents’ divorce. “Hey Jude” begins with a verse-bridge structure incorporating McCartney’s vocal performance and piano accompaniment; further instrumentation is added as the song progresses. After the fourth verse, the song shifts to a fade-out coda that lasts for more than four minutes.

“Hey Jude” was released in August 1968 as the first single from the Beatles’ record label Apple Records. More than seven minutes in length, it was at the time the longest single ever to top the British charts. It also spent nine weeks at number one in the United States, the longest for any Beatles single. “Hey Jude” tied the “all-time” record, at the time, for the longest run at the top of the US charts. The single has sold approximately eight million copies and is frequently included on professional critics’ lists of the greatest songs of all time. In 2013, Billboard named it the 10th “biggest” song of all time.

    I have always loved this song and you do it so well with your new lyrics. Unfortunately, you are preaching to the choir! I wish we could get some of those who don’t plan to vote to see (and watch) this. I just met a woman yesterday who said that she was not going to vote at all because she didn’t like all of the negative ads that are on TV! That is really sad! Anyway, keep up the great work!

    Hey Dude! Your range and creativity are amazing. Heart warming, actually. Some days I just feel like giving up, but, then, I find a new masterpiece in my mailbox. How do I say thank you to someone who helps to keep me sane? THANK YOU!

    FABULOUS! Just the dose of reality wrapped up in support and sent flying by a kick in the butt that we need!

    I don’t know how you keep doing it! Another home run. Thank you for everything you do. Sue Luppert

    Another gem, Don. I think one reason so many do not vote is that with many different tactics of voter suppression ~ deleting long-time voters’ names from registers, a couple of clicks to change the final numbers on the electronic voting machines, gerrymandering, broken machines, not enough machines on college campuses…I could go on and on…many, many votes are not tallied or counted (provisional ballots being the norm and the easiest way to placate an angry would-be voter).
    Even here in Europe, we have read and heard that our votes (largely progressive) are going to be difficult to have counted because the powers that be know that overseas voters tend to be liberal. 65% of us voted for Sanders after all!
    And so we must work to make voting free and fair. In Europe it is always on Sunday and there are never long lines of several hours (another deterrent, of course). NO voters are suddenly deleted from the rolls, and paper ballots are used. Ballots are counted and tallied in front of everyone who wants to be there in their mayor’s office to watch. In short, France, for example, has an open democracy.

    You lifted my spirits this morning! “Hey Dude” was just what we needed after the past week. Thanks again Don!
