 I noticed alot of people were searching the lyrics to this song on my blog, so here it is:

 “Watin’ on the World to Change”

Me and all my friends We’re all misunderstood

They say we stand for nothing and There’s no way we ever could

Now we see everything is going wrong With the world and those who lead it

We just feel like we don’t have the means To rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

It’s hard to beat the system When we’re standing at a distance

So we keep waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change
Now if we had the power

To bring our neighbors home from war

They would have never missed a Christmas

No more ribbons on their door

When you trust your television What you get is what you got

‘Cuz’ when they own the information oh,

They can bend it all they want

So while we’re waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

 It’s not that we don’t care

We just know that the fight ain’t fair

So we keep waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

we’re still waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

 One day our generation Is gonna rule this population

So we keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

Know we keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting (waiting) Waiting on the world to change

Waiting on the world to change Waiting on the world to change

Waiting on the world to change

no, “Whatyeah”, you’re semi right. amazing song. and no we can’t keep waiting. we gotta get up and do something. global change is not going to happen unless people start the movement toward whatever change they may want.

Peace & change comes from within. Do not seek it without.
The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care, and let it spring from concern for all beings.

same story, new singer. what ends up happening is you get older, a little less ambitious, and you are finally making $$ as opposed to being handed it your whole life…

The “World” will “Change” when we, as a NATION will kick its BAD HABIT of being ADDICTED TO THE “LOVE” OF MONEY!!!…
MONEY is just a TOOL!!, But th “LOVE” of it has turned this NATION & WORLD into a GREEDY, SELFISH, OVERLY-AMBITIOUS place to live!!!!!!… where there is STILL PREJUDICE… not sooo much RACIALLY as it is on how muuch $$$$ you have … th ONLY COLOR the WORLD SEES is GREEN!!! Pepole DIE because they are POOR, SINGLE, UNBORN, or an ANIMAL… the differences just KEEP ON COMING!!!
This is WHY JESUS kicked the $$$$ Changers OUT of the TEMPLE!!! Because of their GREED & LUST FOR $$$$$!!!! We have turned “CHRISTMAS” into a “DEN OF THEIVES”, because it is NOT Jesus’ Birthday!!!… (The Jewish CENSUS was NOT in the “Roman” month of DECEMBER)!!! MOSTLY ALL the people think about is “Santa Claus”, which is COMMERCIALISM at its most BASIC CORE!!!… & JESUS is left out in the CORNER!!!… The “3 Wise Men” did NOT see Jesus in the manger… check the Scriptures… they saw Him in the “HOUSE”!!!… & HOW do we KNOW there were only 3 of them???… The # of gifts do NOT neccesarily dictate the # of GUESTS!!!

… WE AS A NATION & WORLD ARE SOOO FAR OFF TARGET!!!

this song is great and what u meen about waiting on the wourld to change meen how people are greedy and selfish about money and also greedy about birthdays and holiday like chrismas when chrismas is really about ffamily and the birth of JESUS!!! a powerful baby that was gifted from the lord to marry so the lord can feel what we feel and stand on the earth…so that meen jesus was the lord in the flesh.

Someone need to give this song to everyone on WALL STREET for a xmas stocking- stuffer

20. 4theunion - February 28, 2010

I’m confused…. is it a song supporting or condemning people who wait on the world to change? This guy is really vague…. Sunday Bloody Sunday is a much better protest song.

21. ermias - March 24, 2012

the song of the century
much respect
