Original

Old pirates, yes
They rob I
Sold I
To the merchant ships
Minutes after
They took I
From the
Bottomless pit
But my hand
Was made strong
By the hand
Of the Almighty
We forward in
This generation
Triumphantly

So won’t you help
To sing
These songs of freedom?
That’s all I ever have

Redemption songs
Redemption song

Emancipate yourselves
From mental slavery
None but ourselves
Can free our minds
Have no fear
For atomic energy
‘Cause none of them
Can stop the time
How long shall they
Kill our prophets
While we stand
Aside and look?
Uuuh
Some say
It’s just
A part of it
We’ve got
To fulfill
The book

So won’t you help
To sing
These songs of freedom?
That’s all I ever have
Heey
Redemption songs
That’s all I ever have
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
Redemption song
These songs of freedom
Whoooah
