We got somethin' we both know it
We don't talk too much about it
Ain't no real big secret all the same
Somehow we get around it

Listen, it don't really matter to me baby
You believe what you want to believe
You see you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Yeah

Somewhere, somehow, somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Tell me, why you wanna lay there
Revel in your abandon

Hii! It don't make no difference to me baby
Everybody's had to fight to be free
You see you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Now baby you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No!

Baby we ain't the first
(Ain't)
I'm sure a lot of other lover's been burned
Right now this seems real to you
(Real)
But it's one of those things
You gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom

Hii! It don't really matter to me, baby
Everybody's had to fight to be free
You see you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Now you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Oww oww oww
