Freedom! '90

Lyricist: George Michael    Composer: George Michael

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
Didn't know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race, a prettier face
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game is not the same, no way
I think I'm gonna get me some happy

I think there's something you should know
(I think it's time I told you so)
There's something deep inside of me
(There's someone else I've got to be)
Take back your picture in a frame
(Take back your singing in the rain)
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true, somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me, yeah

Freedom, I won't let you down
Freedom, I will not give you up
Freedom, gotta have some faith
Gotta have some faith in the sound

Heaven knows we sure had some fun, boy
What a kick, just a buddy and me
We had every big-shot goodtime band on the run, boy
We were living in a fantasy
We won the race, got out of the place
Went back home, got a brand new face for the boys on MTV
But today the way I play the game has got to change, oh yeah
Now I'm gonna get me some happy

I think there's something you should know
(I think it's time I stopped the show)
There's something deep inside of me
(There's someone I forgot to be)
Take back your picture in a frame
(Don’t think that I’ll be back again)
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true, somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me

Freedom, I won't let you down
Freedom, I will not give you up
Freedom, gotta have some faith
Gotta have some faith in the sound

I think there's something you should know
(I think it's time I told you so)
There's something deep inside of me
(There's someone else I've got to be)
Take back your picture in a frame
(Take back your singing in the rain)
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

Eh eh eh eh eh (Oh)
Eh eh eh eh eh (I will not let you down)
Eh eh eh eh eh
Eh

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom (Freedom, freedom)
Gotta have some faith in the sound
Have some freedom (Have some freedom, oh)
Freedom
Freedom (Freedom)

All we have to do now (All we can do)
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see (Oh)
Is that I don't belong to you (Freedom)
And you don't belong to me (Freedom)

I won't let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that I've got

I won't let you down
I will not give you up
It's the one good thing that I've got
