Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes man you already know
I wanna be free, I wanna be free

From Senegal West Africa,
To St. Louis, Missouri
Thanks to Kathryn Dana
For giving my pops his glory
He came down with his drum
And a dream to change the world
In a free uplifting world
And that's all we ever want
Mom came a little after
Gave birth to my brother
And then all of the pressure
Made em' fight one another
See, the pain would never last
Did the best with what they had
He knew the world was out for
And they searched to find their

Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Oohhh Freedom
Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes man, you already know
I wanna be free, I wanna be free
So I search to find my

Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Ohhh Freedom
Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes girl, you already know
I wanna be free, I wanna be free, yeah

As a kid I never knew
I'd have to hustle just to make it through
So I found myself skipping school
Cuz' the girls don't think I'm cool
And because of that I did'nt care
Whether or not I went to jail
I just wanna be treated fair
Cause' that's all I ever knew

Tellin' me I need to slow down
Cause' everybody in the whole town
Cause' they know how I get down
Far enough from another town
Can you believe we still around?
After so many hit the ground
And we ain't gonna stop now
Until we get that...

Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Ohhh Freedom
Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes man you already know
I wanna be free, I wanna be free
Won't stop til' I find my
Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Ohhh Freedom
Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes girl you already know
I wanna be free, I wanna be free,

If you wanna be free, and the land is drug-free
Put your hands up, put your hands up
If you wanna be free, from all your misery
Put your hands up, put your hands up
If you wanna be free, with plenty money
Put your hands up, put your hands up
If you wanna be free, just praise G-O-D
Put your hands up, put your hands up

Freedom, Freedom (Freedom), Freedom,
Ohhhh Freedom
Everything I have, everything I own
All my mistakes girl you already know
I wanna be free(wanna be free),
I wanna be free(wanna be free)
