    "People Got to Be Free" 
    by the Rascals

    All the world over, so easy to see 
    People everywhere just wanna be free 
    Listen, please listen, that's the way it should be 
    Peace in the valley, people got to be free
    You should see, what a lovely, lovely world this would be 
    If everyone learned to live together 
    It seems to me such an easy, easy thing this should be 
    Why can't you and me learn to love one another 

    All the world over, so easy to see 
    People everywhere just wanna be free 
    I can't understand it, so simple to me 
    People everywhere just got to be free 

    If there's a man who is down and needs a helping hand 
    All it takes is you to understand and to pull him through 
    Seems to me, we got to solve it individually 
    And I'll do unto you what you do to me 

    There'll be shoutin' from the mountains on out to sea 
    (out to the sea) 
    No two ways about it, people have to be free 
    (they got to be free) 
    Ask me my opinion, my opinion will be 
    It's a natural situation for a man to be free

    Get right on board now...

    Oh, what a feelin's just come over me 
    Enough to move a mountain, make a blind man see 
    Everybody's dancin', come on, let's go see 
    Peace in the valley, now they want to be free 

    See that train over there?
    That's the train of freedom
    It's about to ride any minute now
    You know it's a long, long overdue
    Look out cause it's-a-comin' right on through.Source URL:
