Julie wants to get out of town
She needs to settle down
Move to a place where no one knows her
Lisa just had to get away
Nothing could make her stay
Tired of living under cover


Everybody knows somebody trying to get free


Be as white as you want to
Be as black as you want to
Be as brown as you want to
Don't let anybody stop you


Be as straight as you want to
Be as gay as you want to
You can wait if you want to
We all need something to hold on to


And if there is a way that you and I could both be free
Have a little understanding and we will be


Daniel moved to another school
Alliances can be cruel
When you're alone without nobody


Michael begged Jen to take a stand
And fight for the love they had
But she'd rather deal with being lonely


Everybody's got somebody telling them what to be


Chorus


And if there is a way that you and I could both be free
Have a little understanding and we will be


Na na na na na na...
And if there is a way that you and I could both be free
Have a little understanding and we will be


Chorus


Be as shy as you want to
Be as loud as you want to
Be as small as you want to
Don't let anybody stop you


Be as thin as you want to
Be as fat as you want to
Be as short as you want to
We all need someone to hold on to
