As I experienced the shimmering of the early sunlight
With my companion kuntu wrapped around me so tight
I told myself I want to be free
Cos, it’s a beautiful day
Well, don’t know what it’ll bring anyway
Hmmm! Just could heave a sigh someway;
About a potful of mixed feelings toward the day
But, I’ve to be free!
You see buddy, the odds come sometimes with their intense might,
As if in a boxing ring and ready to fight
And blinded with life’s punches that you can’t see the light
Of all these, I’ll shake them off and be free
When you’re being hit by the storms of life
Stay focus and just be alive
But, don’t bother about the unnecessary strife
You know, just smile and be free
Even if your partner doesn’t love you anymore,
But praying to God that he or she will love you some more
Don’t fret; it’s not the end of you~ be free!
When you occasionally offend people and are given that stern gaze,
Or that special one deserts you without a trace
Denying you affection and that warm embrace,
Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Uncle, Aunt you’ve gotta be free!
You know, your business may be down for a while due to economic crunch;
Telling heavily on your pocket that you barely could munch
And, you’re found wanting among the bunch
Just say a word of prayer and be free
Hmmm! Ghana abrabo making it hard for graduates to find job
So they have to keep searching with the usual hobnob
Making it difficult that in dire need some live on corn cob
While drivers who’ve to toil all day, but be at the mercy of an inconsiderate cop
With all these challenges can we ever be free?
Oh! Nkrumah Ghana had become a place of beautiful nonsense
Where at one time in history, the Black Star Square declared her freedom
Making the black race found its dignity with pride and rose to stardom
And now, no more meaning attached to her independence
With the nation’s economy being run like apampam store
Everyone’s become unconcerned about those issues than before
And citizens uninterested in patriotism anymore
Of a great nation fast losing its very essence
Making once celebrated beacon of hope for Africa diminish in her eminence
With those unscrupulous politicians losing touch with the people without any influence
I daresay it’s time…!
Citizens, let’s rise up and stop the mental slavery
For it’s time to show strong will of bravery
It’s time to be free!
It’s time to be free from the needless antagonism
But show sheer strength of protagonism
…time to be free from this chronic dumsor dumsor
It’s time to be free from the character of cowardice,
But not sow seeds of hatred and malice
For it’s time to be free from starvation
Just say no to deprivation!
I dare you to say… I want to be free
Say it loud: I’ll be free
Indeed, yes! You can be free
Without any sheer of doubt, you and I must BE FREE!
