The Lyrics

I don't care WHO you vote for, just as long as you VOTE!
Let's Get To Votin' in here...

And the race keeps runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and
runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and...

In this time here, this election year, time to get off your butts, and get it in gear
It takes five minutes for you to make it clear, Tuesday's getting near, the time is almost here!
So dispense with your excuses, you have a vote so use it, use your power now, because if you don't? You lose it
It's getting scary, Bush versus Kerry,
Which one will we carry? Just wait and see
Iraq is getting scary
Gays, they want to marry
Use your voice from north south west east...

[Chorus:]
(Yo) Everybody, (Yeah?) everybody, (Yeah?) polls are open (Yeah!)
No jokin! (Come on)
Get to votin'! (Come on) Get to votin'! (Yeah!) Get to votin'!
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Yeah.

Use the polls! You control!
Don't move too fast, people, just take it slow.
Don't fall behind, the polls are open!
Ya'll hear me talkin'? I'm not jokin'!
Get votin', get to it
Don't worry 'bout it, people will walk you through it.
Step by step, with the new selection
Inch by inch, to a new direction
Transmit votes without correction
It's us who's gonna pick who's gonna win the election!

[Chorus:]
(Yo) Everybody, (Yeah?) everybody, (Yeah?) polls are open (Yeah!)
No jokin! (Come on)
Get to votin' , get to votin' , get to votin' .
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Yeah.

'Cause the race is runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin runnin' and...

C'mon y'all, lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here)
Lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here)
Lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here) Ow, ow, ow!
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya...

It's for real, here's the deal.
Get down to the polls, cause this ain't no drill (Just)
Now's the time to use your voice
Go down to the poll and make your choice (Just)
Cast your vote for Bush or Kerry, better do it now, time's getting' scary
Move swiftly, fast and quick
Or you won't get a say in who the country will pick. (So)
Come on now, the polls are open! Let's be citizens, let's get voting!

[Chorus:]
(Yo) Everybody, (Yeah?) everybody, (Yeah?) polls are open (Yeah!)
No jokin! (Come on)
Get to votin' (come one), get to votin' (yeah), get to votin' .
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin' in here.
Let's get to votin' (ha), let's get to votin'
(woah, woah, woah) in here.
Yeah.

Lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here)
Lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here)
Lets say woohoo!
Lets say woohoo! (in here) Ow, ow, ow!
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya...

'Cause the race is Runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'...
[fade]
Remember, if you don't make your choice today, you can't complain about the result tomorrow

I do care who you vote for. If it helps, Black Eyed Peas performed at the Democratic Convention.
