Freedom

I've got a piece of paper
And I'm going to write on it (2x)
And what will you be writing, Sir
What will you write down? (2x)
I've got a piece of paper
And I'm going to write on it

I'm going to write about freedom
Yes, I'm going write it down (2x)
And what about freedom, Sir
What will you write down? (2x)
I'm going to write about freedom
Yes, I'm going write it down

Are we really free now
As free as it seems?
Are we really free now
Or is freedom painted green?
What do you mean, Sir
Is freedom painted green?
We are the freest country
This world has ever seen

Yes we're really free now
Free to spend and spend
If you have lots of money
Your freedom never ends
Sir, you know you're free now
Free to come and go
A paper made you free
Now it was signed long ago

I know of this paper
But I don't know what you mean
It has become religious
And it has been painted green
It's clear you are unhappy
And you're free to speak your mind
That's what this paper said
And its not changed over time

No one really knows now
What the paper has to say
It depends on who you are
And where you draw your pay
So, what will you do, Sir
How shall we proceed?
It is what we have now
And its surely what we need

I've got a piece of paper
And I'm going to write it down
A new form of government
Yes I'm going to write it down
Well you're free to write, Sir
Write what you will
We are a strong nation
May you make us stronger still
