LYRICS
At the first Thanksgiving feast, the Wampanoag brought meat

To add to the Pilgrim’s humble corn.

So they built the table longer, and the Spirit it got stronger,

And a national metaphor was born.



So they were: Movin’ Left …, Movin’ Left ….

Had to include every woman and man!

Yes, they were: Movin’ Left…., Movin’ Left;

Helping each to become all they can.



Now a big man comes to town, with his fat-cat friends around,

Saying, “Time to end the tax-man’s bite!”

“Private property is king; it’s the most important thing;”

“And exploiting the poor is our right!”



Well then, I’m: Movin’ Left …, Movin’ Left ….

Got to respect every woman and man!

Oh yes, I’m: Movin’ Left…., Movin’ Left;

Helping each to become all they can.



Then La Migra comes to town, and they take some brothers down;

And the ICE men come for the children,

Sayin’, “No, it isn’t fun; but the sorting must be done,”

“’Cause America is right when it’s white!”



Well then, I’m: Movin’ Left …, Movin’ Left ….

Got to respect every woman and man!

Oh yes, I’m: Movin’ Left…., Movin’ Left;

Helping each to become all they can.



Now they’ve dug a mighty hole, and they’re burning all the coal,

In a furnace with a Hellish light,

And the e-lec-tri-ci-ty, which they sell you for a fee,

Makes their air-conditioning hum through the night.



But now we’re: Movin’ Left …, Movin’ Left ….

Got to respect every species around!

Oh yes, we’re: Movin’ Left…., Movin’ Left;

Helping all to survive and rebound.



Back when Jesus was a-preachin’, he said rich men who are reachin’

Up to Heaven face a tiny cleft.

He said, “Blessed are the poor”; they may enter by the door.

This was written from the right to the left.



So we are: Movin’ Left …, Movin’ Left ….

Got to respect every woman and man!

Oh yes, we're: Movin’ Left…., Movin’ Left;

Helping each to become all they can.
