Martin Luther King was a preacher man
He fought the system and the Ku Klux Klan
Served his time down in Birmingham
Fighting all his life, he never raised a hand

August 28, 1963
He said, "I have a dream" for equality
For brotherhood and justice for you and me
This ain't a Jim Crow society

The Civil Rights Movement was a time of revolution
Open up our minds to conscious evolution
So we can pave a way - to a common solution

Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream

Dr. King lived a life of meaning
He wanted to prove he wasn't only dreaming
He'd come for those who'd gone astray
To teach that there's a better way

He said, "Let the Golden Rule be the rule of thumb"
To love each other, everyone
So we can win the war on hate
Before we find that it's too late

Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King - had a dream
Dr. Martin Luther King (Dr, Dr, Dr, Dr)
Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream

He said, "Unity is the great need of the hour"
So when we come together
we will surely have the power
"Unity is the great need of the hour"
So when we come together
we will surely have the power

There's a long road ahead
We've got work to do
For all oppressed people
Muslim or Jew
Rich, poor, black or white
We need to walk a path to light
Coretta Scott King was his foundation
A loving wife who helped her man rock a nation
So we sing in celebration

Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream
Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King
Dr. Martin Luther King (Oh Dr, Dr)
Hmm, Dr. Martin (Oh Dr, Dr. Martin Luther King)
(whispered:)
He came to heal the world
He came to heal the world
He came to heal the world
He came to heal the world
He came to heal the world
