"Freedom" as written by and Derrick King/ Cordell Frances/ Carlton Smith/ Trevor Seivwright/ Charles Bryan/ Errol Brown/ Jabulani Ngozi/ Kondwani Ngozi....
You took my peaches and
Cut down my tree
Tore up my garden
Then you sold it all back to me
Look out my window and
What do I see
One more ugly billboard
Blocking out the scenery

Gimme back my freedom
Why you tryin' to take it from me
Gimme back my freedom
Well why can't you let it be

I ran into a rich man's son
And he was selling me a life of crime
I told him it sounds like fun
But I didn't want to do the time
Chalk it up human nature
Blame it on greedy eyes
Promise me you won't turn the water
Into a great big river of wine

Gimme back my freedom
Why you tryin' to take it away
Gimme back my freedom
Well her what I gotta say
Gimme back my freedom
Why you tryin' to take it from me
Gimme back my freedom
Well why can't you let it be

Woke up this morning
The telephone starts to ring
I held it up close to my ear
But I can't hear a single thing
A voice started talkin'
About things I can't believe
I said if I don't already have it
It's probably something I don't need

Gimme back my freedom
Why you wanna take it away
Gimme back my freedom
Yeah, hear what I gotta say
Gimme back my freedom
Why you tryin' to take it from me
Gimme back my freedom
Well why can't you let it be
