Verse 1
I am free, like the eagle. Like the dolphin, in the sea.
Like the deer, in the meadow. I am free. I am free.
I am strong, like the lion. I am deep, as the sea.
Flowing fast, like the river. I am strong. I am free.

Chorus
And I've been having sweet dreams. Each and every night.
As I uphold the values: God and truth and right!

Verse 2
I am rest, for the weary. Safety for, the young and old.
I am hope, for the hopeless. I am freedom. I am free.
I am freedom, in the city. I am freedom, in the sky.
In the woodlands, and the wheatfields. I am free. I can fly.

Chorus
And I've been having sweet dreams. Each and every night.
As I uphold the values: God and truth and right!

Verse 3
I am justice, for the friendly. Armageddon, for the foe.
I am here, for the long run. I am freedom, I am free.
I am free, like the shore-bird. I am free, like the sunshine.
I am free, like the windsong. I am freedom. I am free.

End
Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Come to me. And be free.

Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Free (I am freedom. I am justice. I am strong.)
Come to me. And be free.

Final
Free!
