  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Ilke a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back and then it goes back, oh

  • Born to a throne, stronger than Rome A violent prone, poor people zone

  • But it's my home, all I have known Where I got grown, streets we would roam

  • Out of the darkness, I came the farthest Among the hardest survival

  • Learn from these streets, it can be bleak Accept no defeat, surrender, retreat!

  • So we're struggling, fighting to eat And we're wondering, when we'll be free

  • So we patiently wait, for that fateful day It's not far away, but for now we say

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back and then it goes back, oh

  • So many wars, settling scores Bringing us promises, leaving us poor

  • I heard them say: 'Love is the way' 'Love is the answer', that's what they say

  • But look how they treat us, make us believers We fight their battles, then they deceive us

  • Try to control us, they couldn't hold us 'Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers

  • But we're struggling, fighting to eat And we're wondering, when we'll be free

  • So we patiently wait, for that fateful day It's not far away, but for now we say

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back and then it goes

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back and then it goes

  • And then it goes

  • And everybody will be singing it And you and I will be singing it

  • And we all will be singing it

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back and then it goes

  • When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag

  • And then it goes back, and then it goes back and then it goes back, oh

  • When I get older, when I get older I will be stronger just like a Wavin' Flag

  • Just like a wavin' flag, just like a Wavin' Flag Flag, Flag, just like a Wavin' Flag

When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom, just Iike a Wavin' Flag
