Stand Up and Be Counted - listen

lyrics by Desmond O'Keeffe. Speeches by Howard Dean.

FX: INCREASING FOOTSTEPS.
Speech: "We need a voice . . . "
Chorus: We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
We want Dean, we want Dean. We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
Speech: ". . . we need a voice
We want Dean, we want Dean. We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
". . . and fairness. . ."
We want Dean, we want Dean. We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
We want Dean, we want Dean. We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
We want Dean, we want Dean
". . our values. . .".
We want Dean, Dean, Dean.
We want Dean, we want Dean. We want Dean, Dean, Dean.

There's a time that comes, there's a moment of truth
It is always down to one day.
When you have the choice, you can do what's right.
Or turn and try walk away.

Now I was taught, not to judge someone
by the different way they may speak
Or the way they dress, or the way they love
or a special faith they may keep.
We want Howard Dean.
But amongst us all are a certain few
Who won't grant that same freedom to be.
We want Howard Dean.
And I have found what they try to do
Is poison all that they see.

This you can't allow if the things they want
Will destroy everyone in their way.
FX: INCREASING FOOTSTEPS.
So the time has come, when the talking's done
You must show that you mean what you say.
We want Howard Dean.
Yeah!!!
Stand up and be counted.
Stand up and be free.
We want Howard Dean.
Time to show the world
There's a flag unfurled.
And you'll fight for the right you can see.
We want Howard Dean
Stand up and be counted.
Stand steady and strong.
We want Howard Dean.
Tell the arrogant foe
That the answer's NO
FX: FOOTSTEPS.
And you're not going to tolerate wrong.
Speech: " The great unspoken truth. . . "
---Strings---
--- I will be free -----

Now is the time.
This our course will stay.
We will keep right on to the end.
We want Dean!
If we lead the rest,
If we're ten abreast,
or you stand back to back with a friend.
We want Dean!

Rather live this day in pride
Than a life time spent on my knees.
Speech: "We can do better than that. . ."
We want Dean!
And when something tells you deep inside
There's a moment now we must seize.
We want Dean!
Speech: ". . . taught to believe in."

Stand up and be counted.
Speak loud so they hear.
with a head held high
Stand for those gone by
And a future lived without fear.
We want . . .
We want Dean!.
----- Strings ----
Stand, stand, stand with me.
We want Howard Dean.
--------Strings ----
You can count on me.
We want . . .
We want Dean!
----------Strings ------------
We want Dean!
-----------Strings ----------
We want . . .
We want Dean!
----Strings-------
(together ) You can count on me/We want . . .
We want Dean!
---Strings-------
We want Dean!
Stand, stand, stand with me.
---------Strings---------------
Stand proud who you are...

You can count on me.
We want Howard ...
Through the tears and sweat
To oppose this threat
We will follow our guiding star.
Speech: "My vision is. . . "
-----Strings ---------
You can count on me.
You can count on me.
------Strings---------
You can count on me.
Speech: " If people see good in me. . . "
APPLAUSE.
Stand, stand, stand with me.
----------Strings-----------
------------------------------
Speech: " There's a call to every American. . ."

We want Howard Dean.
Howard Dean, Howard Dean, Howard Dean, Howard Dean.
Howard Dean, Howard Dean, Howard Dean, Howard Dean.
Speech: " And today we stand in common purpose..."
FOOTSTEPS.
I will be free.
I will be free. I will be free,
I will be free. I will be free.

I will be free.


YEAH !!!
