In The Springtime - YOU'RE SAFE 1985

written by : P.Robinson/M.Elliott/C.Henry


In the springtime
You can see nature full and free
High up in the trees
You can hear the birds them singing songs of freedom

Out in the open
Everything there is fresh and clean
Unlike the life I'm here living
All creatures great and small
Living together one and all

(Chorus)
I wanna be
The way I wanna be
That is the way I wanna be
Like the birds in the tree yeh
They're going tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet ……
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of freedom

Living in the city
No chains around my feet
But still I am not free
No handcuffs on my hand
But I've got my dignity
I wanna be
The way I wanna be
That is the way I wanna be Like the birds in the tree yeh
They're going tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet ……
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of freedom

Say as a youth living in the city
Can't get no work
Can't get no job
Can't get no money to put in my pocket
I can't get a thing to have of my own

That’s why I wanna be free
That’s why I wnna be free
Like the bird in the tree
Like the bird in the tree

They're going tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet …….
Singing songs of freedom
Singing songs of freedom

Yes in the spring time
You can feel nature full and free
High up in the trees
You can hear the birds them singing songs of freedom

Out in the open
Everything there is fresh and clean
Unlike the life I'm here living
All creatures great and small
Living together one and all

I wanna be
The way I wanna be
Just like the birds in the trees
They're going...tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet …..
They're going... tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet……
