Laura Nyro – Lite A Flame lyrics

In the zoo
They gave him a cage
Circus put a sparkle
On his face
Away from life
The elephant walks
Shadow across a dream
Lost for ivory
Oh freedom
Lite a flame

It's like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant of the plain

Masai moon
In the morningrise

Africa -
The world comes alive
A matriarch
Leads the tribe
To the sweet water
The cool feelin'
And the way to survive

Oh freedom
Lite a flame

It's like prejudice
For the color of your skin
Prejudice for a woman
Prejudice for an animal
Like the elephant of the plain

Of the plain
For greed not need
Societies sleep
Lead the killing hand on

Young ones full of spark
A wave of birds across the park
Kids climbing
Sliding, riding free
Elephant child hiding
Behind a tree

Prejudice
For an animal
Like the elephant of the plain
