House to house and door to door
What is it you are looking for?
A signature, a smiling face?
You make your way from place to place.
Some neighborhoods may look run down
You think that no one is around
But, suddenly a door will open
You cross your fingers and start hoping.
Will they be cooperative?
Sign and date your narrative?
Vote by mail and registrations
Support your cause, no hesitations?
Surprisingly they sign the form
They reach out now…to touch your arm
They thank you for your dedication
The work you do to save our nation.
When they agree to volunteer
Can’t help yourself, you’re brought to tears
Your faith in humanity … restored
You want to knock on every door.
You fill out forms, you pass out cards
Getting pledges is not so hard.
You verify their cell phone number
It starts to rain, you hear the thunder.
The temperature, so blistering hot
A few more doors you need to knock
You have to tell them all the facts
Though sweat is running down your back.
Time to go, it’s time to sleep
Rest those tired and weary feet.
The rain comes down, though soaking wet
This was a day you won’t forget.
