A Carousel for Fools
A Carousel for Fools
I well remember Martin Luther King
Damn you who say he didn’t change a thing
You should have been there
You should have been there
When Rosa Parks sat down to make her stand
When Rosa changed the history of her land
You should have been there
You should have been there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there

When men of violence rose to have their say
The Mahatma Ghandi found a peaceful way
You should have been there
You should have been there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there

Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
You should have been there
You should have been there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there

For twenty-seven years he was confined
No bribe nor threat would change Madiba’s mind
You should have been there
You should have been there
On Robben Isle they hoped his dreams would drown
But he smiled and brought Apartheid crashing down
You should have been there
You should have been there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there

Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
You should have been there
You should have been there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there

Who stood before the tanks at Tiananmen?
Who’ll stand defending freedom once again?
We have to be there
I hope you’ll be there
For what are our tomorrows like to be?
Our future is to write our history
What will we see there?
I hope you’ll be there
Oh it would raise my soul if you’re there

Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
You should have been there
You should have been there

Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
You should have been there
You should have been there

Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
Sing aloud sing aloud sing aloud and bellow - Freedom
You should have been there
You should have been there

Oh how it raised my soul to be there
Oh how it raised my soul to be there
