Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah

Let the(unknown)said he'd send him home
But his hope was a rope but he should have known
It's hard to understand
There was love in this man
I'm sure all would agree
That his misery was his woman and things

Freddie's dead, huh
That's what I said

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him off and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man
A terrible blow but that's how it goes
Freddie's on the corner now

And if you want to be a junkie, wow
Just remember
Freddie's dead

We're all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
You can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean ?

Ain't no damned thing said
'Cause Freddie's dead

Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah

Hey, yeah, hey, hey
Love, love, love, love, love
Yeah, yeah

All I want is some peace of mind
With a little love I'm tryin' to find
This could be such a beautiful world
With a wonderful girl
I need a woman, child

Why can't we brothers protect one another ?
No one's serious and it make furious

Freddie's dead
Don't be misled, just think of Fred
Don't be misled, just think of Fred

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him off and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushing dope for the man

Freddie's on the corner now
And if you want to be a junkie, wow

Freddie's dead
Freddy, Freddy, Freddy, Freddy
Freddie's dead, huh
