Got to Be Free

Hush little baby don't you cry

Soon the sun is going to shine

We're going to be free like the birds and the bees

Running wild in the big country

Got to be free to do what I want

Walk if I want, talk if I want

Got to be free to say what I want

Make what I want and play what I want

As free as the birds up in the sky

As free as the bugs and the spiders and flies

I don't know how but I'm gonna try

I've just got to be free

And it won't be long 'cos we're right

And they are wrong

We've got to get out of this world somehow

We've got to be free, we've got to be free now

Got to be free to laugh when I want

Think what I want and cry if I like

Got to be free to do what I want

Say what I want and swear if I like

As free as the sun and the moon in the sky

As free as a flea or a proud butterfly

I don't know how but I'm gonna try

I've just got to be free

Yeah, we've got to get out of this world somehow

We've got to be free, we've got to be free now

Got to be free to do what I want

Walk if I want and talk if I want

Got to be free to say what I want

Make what I want and play what I want

I've got to be proud and stand up straight

And let people see I ain't nobody's slave

I've got to be free before it's too late

I've just got to be free

Got to be free to do what I want

Walk if I want, talk if I want
