On May 8, 2012, this is what North Carolina voters will see on the ballot:

[] For [X] Against
Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized by this State.

When the 8th of May is come, let's vote against amendment one.

Stranger there across the room
Your children are my children too
When seven days of May are done
I'll vote against amendment one

Father one or fathers two
Your family is my family too
Ties that bind won't be undone
We'll vote against amendment one

Love thy neighbor, word and true
Your neighbor is my neighbor too
To work beside and lean upon
And vote against amendment one

Points of light and points of view
Your city is my city too
The crumbling walls we'll overrun
To vote against amendment one

We cannot see for red or blue
But your state it is my state too
And when the 8th of May is come
We'll vote against amendment one
We'll rise up with the morning sun
And vote against amendment one
The sounding cry has just begun
We'll vote against amendment one
