I wish I knew how
It would feel to be free
I wish I could break
All the chains holding me
I wish I could say
All the things that I should say
Say 'em loud say 'em clear
For the whole round world to hear

I wish I could share
All the love that's in my heart
Remove all the bars
That keeps us apart
I wish you could know
How it feels to be me
Then you'd see and agree
Every man should be free

I wish I could live
Like I'm longin' to live
I wish I could give
All I'm longin' to give
I wish I could do
All the things that I should do
Though I'm way overdue
I'd be starting anew.

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
How sweet it would be
If I found out I could fly
I'd soar to the sun
And look down on the sea
And you'll see and agree
oh yes you'll see and agree
oh yes you'll see and agree
That every man should be free
Oh every man should be free (8x)
