Free like we want to be
Some time you want to get off
Leave the work and take off
But the boss man say you gonna lose you pay
No chain on your feet now
9 to 5 got you beat now
You working hard to save
Inflation like a tidal wave

Are we free like we want to be
Tell me are we free like we want to be
Are we free like we want to be
Tell me are we free like we want to be

Racist get defeat
Black Man vote and take you seat
Now them think we gonna quiet
Maybe we start a riot
Whan happen to the diamond they stole
The innocent blood run cold
Do we still have to live in poverty
Now they say we're free to be poor
But are we free like we want to be
Black Man are we free like we want to be

Tell me are we free like want to be
Are you free are you free
Kept in emotion
Will cause an explosion
Let your love go
Let me know
Some people expect
That's not what them get
Become no slave
Of them evil and wicked ways

Are we free like we want to be
Are we free like we want to be
Are you free like you want to be
Are we free like we want to be

Can't walk the streets late at night
Without fear of parasite
Everyone has a inborn right
A inborn right to live
Who gave us the reason to fight
By promoting negative vibes
Who taught us of drugs and crime
Now they say we're free to homicide
Committing geoncide
We freely homicide committing genocide

Man we free like we want to be
Black Man we free like we want to be
Tell me we free like we want to be
Are you free like you want to be
We want to be free
Free like we want to be
