  • Man made power
    Stood like a tower higher
    Hi'ya hi'ya hello
    And the higher you go
    You feel lower oh oh
    So I was close to the ants
    Staying under cover, staying under cover
    With the nose to the ground

    I found my sound
    Got myself an interview tomara
    Got myself a jacket for a dollar
    And my nails are chipped

    But I'm eager
    And car doesn't work so I'm stuck here
    I don't wanna live for tomara
    I'll push my luck today
    I'll throw this in ya face when I see ya
    I got somethin' to say
    I'll throw this shit in ya face when I see ya
    Cause I got somin' to say

    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free

    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free

    You might try to find ways to be happier
    You might end up somewhere in Ethiopia
    You can think big with your idea
    You ain't never gonna find utopia
    Take a bite out life make it snappier

    Ordinary gon' super trippyer
    So I check shit cause I'm lippyer
    Oh split the cheque like Slovakia
    I don't wanna live for tomara

    I'll push my luck today
    I'll throw this in ya face when I see ya
    I got somethin' to say
    I'll throw this shit in ya face when I see ya

    Cause I got somin' to say
    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free

    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free

    I don't wanna talk about money
    Cause I got it
    I don't want to talk about hoochies
    Cause I've been it
    And I don't wanna to be that fake
    Cause you can do it
    And imitators yeah stick it!

    Lord who eva' you are
    Com out wherever you are
    Lord who eva' you are
    Com out wherever you are

    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free
    I was born free, born free

    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free
    Bo bo bo born free Writer/s: ALAN BERMOWITZ, DAVE TAYLOR, JOHN HILL, MARTIN REVERBY, MAYA ARULPRAGASAM
