Old pirates yes they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ship
Minutes after they took it
From the bottomless pit

But my hand was made strong
By the arms of the almighty
We forward in this generation
And triumphantly

Won't you help me sing
These songs of freedom
It's all I ever had
Redemption song
Redemption song

Emancipate yourself from
Mental slavery
None but ourself can free our mind
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time
How long must they kill our profits
While we stand aside and look
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
