People Got to be Free

(Theme Song for the book "Androcles and the Lion") by Felix Cavaliere & Edward J. Brigati ©1968 EMI Music Publishing, Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

Featuring Guest Vocalist:
Daniel Johnson

Chorus 1
All the world over, so easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
Listen, please listen, that's the way it should be
Peace in the valley, people got to be free

Verse 1
You should see, what a lovely, lovely world this would be
If everyone learned to live together
It seems to me such an easy, easy thing this would be
Why can't you and me learn to love one another?

Chorus 2
All the world over, so easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free
I can't understand it, so simple to me
People everywhere just got to be free

Verse 2
If there's a man who is down and needs a helping hand
All it takes is you to understand and to pull him through
Seems to me, we got to solve it individually
And I'll do unto you what you do to me

Chorus 3
There'll be shoutin' from the mountains on out to sea (out to the sea)
No two ways about it, people have to be free (they got to be free)
Ask me my opinion, my opinion will be (ah-ha)
It's a natural situation for a man to be free

Chorus 4
Oh, what a feelin's just come over me
Enough to move a mountain, make a blind man see
Everybody's dancin', come on, let's go see
Peace in the valley, now they ought to be free
