Got your hands in your pockets
Like your ready to pay
Got your eyes out of socket
Like your a mile away
Mouth shut like a locket
Like you've nothing to say
Speak your mind up
Come on baby

Free yourself
No one to do it
Free yourself
Nothin' to it
Free yourself
Don't let nobody try & steal your soul
You're the original

So you say you're just a lost soul
I know you better than that
So you say you're just lost in the wash up
I know you better than that
So you say your just a face in the city race
Wasted and sick of it all
Speak your mind up
Come on baby

Free yourself
No one to do it
Free yourself
Nothin' to it
Free yourself
Don't let nobody try & steal your soul
You're the original
The original
You're the original
The original
Alright!

Come on now (x3)

Free yourself
No one to do it
Free yourself
Nothin' to it
Free yourself
Don't let nobody try & steal your soul
Free yourself
No one to do it
Free yourself
Nothin' to it
Free yourself
Don't let nobody try & steal your soul
You're the original
