Rosa Parks

February 2, 2006

Rosa ParksIn Montgomery, Alabama, not a long time ago,

A black woman sat down on a bus.

She was tired, she did day work,

she sewed clothes, her feet hurt.

And since that day she changed the world for us.

Cause she said, “No sir, I won’t get up.

I’m tired and I want to sit down

and I won’t get up.”

You can talk about Martin Luther King,

have demonstrations, everything

Just remember who began it, Rosa Parks.

In this wild and wicked world

Tell me what kind of man

Would say to a hard working woman,

“Lady, get up!”

She was just like me and you,

she did what she could do.

(Chorus)

She said, “No sir, I won’t get up.

I’m tired and I want to sit down and I won’t get up.”

You can talk about Martin Luther King,

have demonstrations, everything

Just remember who began it, Rosa Parks.
