My Vote

This is a song I just made up, taken from the music behind Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” – My Shot

 

MY VOTE

I am not throwing away my VOTE

I am not throwing away my VOTE

Hey yo, I really love my country

And I don’t want to go hungry

And I’m not throwing away my Vote

 

I’m ‘a get a ballot to make my educated choices

I feel so blessed that we Americans can use our voices

The problem is we got a lot of noise but with no polish

Candidates holler just to be heard

And with every hateful word, we’re losing knowledge

 

This election has been rough, it’s been a long road,

But we’ve got to use our freedom to vote … it’s unimpeachable

 

I’m a mother and my son’s getting older

These rallies are getting colder, and bolder

Every email, every disadvantage

Candidates have learned to manage to make claims so outlandish

Has common decency been banished?

 

The plan is to fan this spark into a flame

But damn, it’s burning out, so let me spell out our name

We are the A-M-E-R-I-C-A

And we have a duty to vote today

 

A country that runs independently

Meanwhile, uneducated posts keep coming up endlessly

Essentially, damaging democracy relentlessly

A time when a candidate goes on a tweeting spree

He aint never gonna let the media be free

So there will be a female president in this century

Enter Me, Hillary says in parentheses

 

 

Don’t be shocked when your hist’ry book

Mentions he or she

We are laying down our vote for our democracy

Eventually, we will continue our ascendancy

 

And I am not throwing away my VOTE

I am not throwing away my VOTE

Hey yo, I really love my country

And I don’t want to go hungry

And I am not throwing away my VOTE

 

Vote, vote, vote …. Vote … vote, yeah!
