Jefferson Airplane: Volunteers (RCA Victor)

Miller Francis Jr., Great Speckled Bird, The, 1 December 1969

Look what's happening out in the streets 
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Hey, I'm dancing down the streets
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Ain't it amazing, all the people I meet
Got a revolution Got to revolution

One generation got old 
One generation got soul 
This generation got no destination to hold 
Pick up the cry!

Hey now, it's time for you and me
Got a revolution Got to revolution 
Come on now, we're marching to the sea
Got a revolution Got to revolution 
Who will take it from you? 
We will, and who are we?
We are Volunteers of Amerika! 
Volunteers of Amerika! 
Volunteers of Amerika! 
Volunteers of Amerika!
