What if Martin didn't stand up?
What if Rosa didn’t sit down?
What if Malcolm didn't man up?
Where would we be now?
What if Marley didn't get up, stand up?
What if the boys didn’t come to advance us?
And Mandela didn't come to teach us?
Where would we be now?

We are the ones we've been waitin' for
We can change the world
We can change the world

With our love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
'Cause it is up to us
We are the ones we've been waitin' for
We can change the world
Our love can change the world
We can change the world
With our love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
Our love can change the world

What if Maya didn't speak out?
What if Langston Hughes didn’t write it down?
What if Josephine Baker didn’t dance it out? (No)
Tell me where would we be now?
What if Sojourner never told the truth?
Ida B. Wells never printed the news?
Harriet never went underground?
Where would we be now?

We are the ones we've been waitin’ for
We can change the world
We can change the world

With our love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
'Cause it is up to us
We are the ones we've been waitin' for
We can change the world
Our love can change the world
We can change the world
With our love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
Our love can change the world

Me too, I matter, you matter, we matter
Together we are love
Me too, I matter, you matter, we matter
Together we are love
It’s gotta be all of us
Stand up and speak up
With all of our love

Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
'Cause it is up to us
We are the ones we've been waitin' for
We can change the world
Our love'll change the world
We will change the world

Love, love, love, love
Our love can change the world
