Dedicata a Nelson Mandela
Dedicated to Nelson Mandela

They throwed him in jail
And they kept him there
Hoping soo he'd die
That his body and spirit would waste away
And soon after that his mind
But every day is born a fool
One who thinks that he can rule
One who says tomorrows mine
One who wakes one day to find
The prison doors open the shackles broken
And chaos in the street

Everybody sing were free free free free
Everybody sing were free free free free
Everybody sing were free free free free

They throwed him in jail
And they kept him there
Hoping his memoryd die
That the people forget how he once led
And fought for justice in their lives

But every day is born a man
Who hates what he cant understand
Who thinks the answer is to kill
Who thinks his actions are gods will

And he thinks hes free free free free
Yes he thinks hes free free free free
He thinks hes free free free free

Soon must come the day
Whe the righteous have their way
Unjustly tried are free
And people live in peace I say
Give the man release
Go on and set your conscience free
Right the wrongs you made
Even a fool can have his day

Let us all be free free free free
Let us all be free free free free
Let us all be free free free free

Free our bodies free our minds
Free our hearts
Freedom for everyone
And freedom now

Freedom now
Freedom now
Freedom now

Let us all be free free free free
Let us all be free free free free
Let us all be free free free free
