Lyrics

moses lead the people across the burning sands

when he came up to the red sea, he lifted both his hands

he looked to the left - then he looked to the right

he picked up his staff - hit the ground with all his might, he said,

you cant stop me now, you cant stop me now, i’m just getting started

MLK got to preaching that he dreamed of a change

how one day we would all rise up, rise up in love’s name

he picked up his left foot, and he picked up his right

Then he started marching for inalienable rights, he said,

you cant stop me now - you cant stop me now
i’m just getting started - i’m just getting started

I was attacked by the self-righteous, clicking cogs in the machine

cuz I defend poor huddled masses, human rights and equality

i put up my left hand - then i put up my right

i stand willing and able - ready to fight the good fight

you cant stop me now, you cant stop me now
i’m just getting started - i’m just getting started
