[Fannie Lou Hamer] I want you to know what's happening to us today [Malcolm X] I don't see any American dream I see an American nightmare [FLH] but we gonna change that baby. We want a change We want a change throughout the country We want a change We want a change, change - I'm talkin about some real change and people whether you believe it or not... I want you to know what's happening to us today [Malcolm X] I don't see any American dream I see an American nightmare [FLH] but we gonna change that baby. We want a change We want a change throughout the country We want a change We are sick and tired of seeing people shot down in the name of law and order all across the country I want you to know what's happening to us today [Malcolm X] I don't see any American dream I see an American nightmare [FLH] If I hate you because you hate me I'm no better than you are - and I don't hate a person because they hate me. I'll try to free that person too. I don't see all people as bad... and I don't hate a person because they hate me. We are a part of America, but we do want to be treated as human beings and I'm fighting for human rights, not for equal rights. We want a change We want a change throughout the country We want a change We want a change, change, and people whether you believe it or not... A house divided against itself cannot stand A nation that's divided against itself cannot stand and its two past midnight and we on our way out. [Malcolm X] I don't see any American dream I see an American nightmare [FLH] but we gonna change that baby.

Its a lot of people that said well, forget about politics But baby what we eat is politics And I'm not gonna forget no politics Because in 1972 when I go to Washington as Senator Hamer from Mississippi You gonna know its gonna be some changes made We want a change We want a change throughout the country We first been told that we wasn't fittin' We got to get the kind of education to fit in this society But as sick as it is I wonder do I want the kind of education that's gonna rob me of having real love and compassion for my fellow man. I've heard several comments from people that was talkin' about 'with the people, for the people and by the people' Bein' a black woman from Mississippi, I've learned that long ago that's not true Its 'with a handful, for a handful, by a handful' - but we gonna change that baby. We want a change We want a change throughout the country Don't kid yourself baby If this society of yours is a great society God knows I would hate to live in a bad one. One crowd of people can't change the status quo But if 2 and 2 and 50 make a million we'll see the day come round and we'll be able to stand and fight together for the things that we rightfully deserve to make democracy a reality for all of the people of the world regardless of race or color. Thank you.
