I ain't a-scared of your jail, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
Ain't a-scared of your jail, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!

I ain't a-scared of your dogs, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
Ain't a-scared of your dogs, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!

I ain't a-scared of the Bull, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
Ain't a-scared of the Bull, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!

I ain't afraid of the hose, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
Ain't a-scared of the hose, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!

I'll walk the picket line, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I'll walk the picket line, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!

I ain't a-scared of your jail, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom
I want my freedom
Ain't a-scared of your jail, because I want my freedom
I want my freedom now!
