  • Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We, the people here, don't want a war

    Hey there, Mister Black Man can you hear me?
    I won't dig your diamonds or hunt your game
    I just want to be, someone known to you as me
    and I will bet my life you want the same

    So come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We, the people here, don't want a war

    Seven hundred million are you listening?
    Most of what you read is made of lies
    But speaking one to one, ain't it everybody's sun
    To wake to in the morning when we rise?

    So come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung, never sung, before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    We, the people here, don't want a war

    Brother Yareshenko are you busy?
    If not would you drop a friend a line?
    Tell me if the man, who is plowing up your land
    has got the war machine upon his mind

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    Taht we, the people here, don't want a war

    Now no doubt some folks enjoy doin' battle
    Like presidents and ministers and kings
    But let us build them shelves where they can fight among themselves
    and leave the people be who like to sing

    Come and sing a simple song of freedom
    Sing it like you've never sung before
    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    That we the people here, don't want a war

    Let it fill the air
    Tell the people everywhere
    That we the people here, don't want a war
