In 1950 when I was born
Papa couldn't afford to buy us much
He said, Be proud of what you are
There's something special 'bout people like us

People like us
Who will answer the telephone
People like us
Growing as big as a house
People like us
Gonna make it because

We don't want freedom
We don't want justice
We just want someone to love
Someone to love

I was called upon in the 3rd grade class
I gave my answer and it caused a fuss
I'm not the same as everyone else
And times were hard for people like us

People like us
Who will answer the telephone
People like us
Growing big as a house
People like us
Gonna make it because

We don't want freedom
We don't want justice
We just want someone to love
Someone to love, wait now

What good is freedom?
God laughs at people like us
I see it coming
Like a light coming down from above

The clouds roll by and the moon comes up
How long must we live in the heat of the sun
Millions of people are waitin' on love
And this is a song about people like us

People like us
Who will answer the telephone
People like us
Growing big as a house
People like us
Gonna make it because

We don't want freedom
We don't want justice
We just want someone to love
Someone to love

Someone to love
Someone to love
