(CHORUS)
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 don't want your diamonds or your game,
I just want to be, someone known to you as me,
And I will bet my life you want the same.

(CHORUS)

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?

(CHORUS)

Brother Solzhenitsyn(3) are you busy?
If not won't you drop this friend a line?
Tell me if the man, who is plowing up your land,
Has got the war machine upon his mind.

(CHORUS)

Now no doubt some folks enjoy doin' battle,
Like presidents, prime ministers or kings,
So lets all build them shelves where they can fight it out among themselves,
And leave the people be who love to sing.

(CHORUS)
I said, Let it fill the air,
Tell the people everywhere,
That we the people here, don't want a war.
