bob dylan - the times they are a changing


Ícone de canal

Hi, I am Spanish and would appreciate would tell me if you see mistakes in the subtitles.

Ahii va en español:
La gente se empieza a juntar por donde tu andas
Y reconoces el agua que te rodea ha aumentado
Y aceptas que pronto estarás mojado hasta los huesos
Si el tiempo para ti es un preciado salvador
Entonces mejor comienza nadando o te sumergirás como una piedra
Porque los tiempos están cambiando
Vengan escritores y críticos, que profetizan con su lapicero
Y mantienen sus ojos abiertos, la oportunidad no vendrá de nuevo
Y no hablen tan pronto, porque la rueda aún está girando
Y no hay quien diga su nombre
Porque los perdedores ahora, luego serán los que ganen
Porque los tiempos están cambiando
Vengan senadores, congresistas, por favor considerar la llamada
No se queden en la entrada, no bloqueen el corredor
Porque él que está herido será el que se ha de atascar
Hay una batalla afuera y se está bramando
Pronto vibrará tus ventanas y sacudirán tus paredes
Porque los tiempos están cambiando
Vengan madres y padres a lo largo de la tierra
Y no critiquen lo que no pueden entender
Sus hijos y sus hijas empezando su mandato
Su viejo camino está envejecimiento rápidamente
Por favor exclúyanse de lo nuevo si no pueden dar su mano
Porque los tiempos están cambiando
La línea está dibujada, el curso de esta ya está moldeado
El lento más tarde será rápido
Así que el presente ahora, después será pasado
El orden se está rápidamente desvaneciendo
Y el primero ahora, luego será el último
Porque los tiempos están cambiando 

Bob Dylan : The Times They Are A-changin' Lyrics

Songwriters: Dylan, Bob;

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

"The Times They Are a-Changin'" is a song written by Bob Dylan and released as the title track of his 1964 album, The Times They Are a-Changin'. The song was ranked #59 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.



Inspiration and composition

Dylan appears to have written the song in September and October 1963. He recorded it as a Witmark publishing demo that month, a version that was finally released on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991. The song was then recorded at the Columbia studios in New York on October 23 and 24,[1] and the latter session yielded the version that became the title song of Dylan's third album.[2]
Dylan recalled writing the song as a deliberate attempt to create an anthem of change for the moment. In 1985, he told Cameron Crowe: "This was definitely a song with a purpose. It was influenced of course by the Irish and Scottish ballads ...'Come All Ye Bold Highway Men', 'Come All Ye Tender Hearted Maidens'. I wanted to write a big song, with short concise verses that piled up on each other in a hypnotic way. The civil rights movement and the folk music movement were pretty close for a while and allied together at that time."[3]
Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin recounts how Tony Glover stopped by Dylan's apartment in September 1963, picked up a page of the song Dylan was working on and read a line from it: "'Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call.' Turning to Dylan, Glover said, 'What is this shit, man?' Dylan shrugged his shoulders and replied, 'Well, you know, it seems to be what the people want to hear.'"[4]
Dylan critic Michael Gray called it "the archetypal protest song." Gray commented, "Dylan's aim was to ride upon the unvoiced sentiment of a mass public—to give that inchoate sentiment an anthem and give its clamour an outlet. He succeeded, but the language of the song is nevertheless imprecisely and very generally directed."[2] Gray suggests that the song has been outdated by the very changes that it gleefully predicted, and hence the song was politically out of date almost as soon as it was written.
Literary critic Christopher Ricks suggests that the song transcends the political preoccupations of the time in which it was written. Ricks argues that Dylan is still performing the song, and when he sings "Your sons and your daughter/Are beyond your command", he sings inescapably with the accents not of a son, no longer perhaps primarily a parent, but with the attitude of a grandfather. Ricks concludes: "Once upon a time it may have been a matter of urging square people to accept the fact that their children were, you know, hippies. But the capacious urging could then come to mean that ex-hippie parents had better accept that their children look like becoming yuppies. And then Republicans..."[5]
Critic Andy Gill points out that the song's lyrics echo lines from the Book of Ecclesiastes which Pete Seeger adapted to create his anthem "Turn, Turn, Turn!". The climactic line about the first later being last, likewise, is a direct scriptural reference to Mark 10:31: "But many that are first shall be last, and the last first."[6]
Less than a month after Dylan recorded the song, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. The next night, Dylan opened a concert with "The Times They Are a-Changin'"; he told biographer Anthony Scaduto: "I thought, 'Wow, how can I open with that song? I'll get rocks thrown at me.' But I had to sing it, my whole concert takes off from there. I know I had no understanding of anything. Something had just gone haywire in the country and they were applauding the song. And I couldn't understand why they were clapping, or why I wrote the song. I couldn't understand anything. For me, it was just insane."[7]
