Old pirates, yes, they rob I,
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit

But my ‚and was made strong
By the ‚and of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

Won’t you help to sing,
These songs of freedom?
‚Cause all I ever had,
Redemption songs.
All I ever had,
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
Songs of freedom

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
None but our self can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
‚Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill de book

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
‚Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
None but our self can free our mind
Have no fear for atomic energy
‚Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall dey kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill de book

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
‚Cause all I ever had
Redemption songs
All I ever had
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
Songs of freedom
