Bobby Darin

Simple Song of Freedom

 


 


 
      Come and sing a simple song of freedom
      Sing it like you've never sung before
      Let it fill the air
      Tell the people everywhere
      We, the people here, don't want a war.
 
      Hey, there, mister black man, can you hear me?  
      I don't want your diamonds or your game
      I just want to be someone known to you as me
      And I will bet my life you want the same.
 
      Come and sing a simple song of freedom
      Sing it like you’ve never sung before
      Let it fill the air
      Tell the people everywhere
      We, the people here, don’t want a war. 
 
      Seven hundred million are ya list'nin’?
      Most of what you read is made of lies
      But, speakin’ one to one ain't it everybody's sun
      To wake to in the mornin’ when we rise?
 
      Come and sing a simple song of freedom
      Sing it like you’ve never sung before
      Let it fill the air
      Tell the people everywhere
      We, the people here, don’t want a war. 
 
      Brother Solzhenitsyn, are you busy?
      If not, won't you drop this friend a line
      Tell me if the man who is plowin' up your land
      Has got the war machine upon his mind?
 
      Come and sing a simple song of freedom
      Sing it like you’ve never sung before 
      Let it fill the air
      Tell the people everywhere
      We, the people here, don’t want a war. 
 
      Now, no doubt some folks enjoy doin' battle
      Like presidents, prime ministers and kings
      So, let's all build them shelves 
      Where they can fight among themselves
      Leave the people be who love to sing.
 
      Come and sing a simple song of freedom
      Sing it like you’ve never sung before
      Let it fill the air 
      Tell the people everywhere
      We, the people here, don’t want a war. 
 
      I say … let it fill the air … 
      Tellin’ people everywhere … 
      We, the people here, don't want a war.
