If you don't vote, don't cry
We told you before to vote or die.

When things get really bad and you have to walk
Because you can't buy gas and your walk is no longer all spiffy and spry,
Well, walk on brother, because if you don't vote, don't cry.

When you go to the store and the prices have gone through the ceiling and hit the sky,
And you're walking around cussing and complaining and tell everybody
that these prices are too damn high
And you don't know what you're going to buy,
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.

If you find yourself between a rock and a hard place
And you can't pay your mortgage and have to downsize to a small space
And you feel disgusted and disgraced and can't keep a tear from your eye,
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.

If you get laid off from your job and things for you were already hard
And you know that they sent your job to another land
And all you can do is throw up your hands and ask God why?
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.

If you get really ill and can't go to the doctor because you can't pay the bill
Not to mention buying those expensive pills,
And you feel like you're going to die,
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.

If you go off to school and you complied with all the rules
But you can't get a grant or a student loan and have to pack your bags and go back home
And you're all angry and upset and tell your mama that the world is just passing you by,
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.

If you lose your food stamps and section eight
And you call your worker to get it straight
And she tells you that John McCain cut your benefits and didn't say why
And you let out a heavy sigh,
Well, if you don't vote, don't cry.
We already told you to vote or die.
