V1) They take my freedom away
Take away my work and play
But the vibe I generate
Ch) They can't take that away (no way)

V2) No matter what they say
Or what games they play
The sun comes up each
Ch) They can't take that away (no way)

V3) I haven't seen my daughter's face
In more than 2000 days
But the memories we made
Ch) They can't take that away (no way)

V4) When I wake each day
I give thanks and praise
It's a choice I made
Ch) They can't take that away (no way)
