I Have a Dream (2008-versie)

Info

(MLK)
"...I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the color of their skin
but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!..."

This world we live in
is meant for all to share
but many people
act like they just don't care
They go on claiming:
"This land is ours alone!
Throw out those strangers!
got to protect my home..."

No, you'll never be as good as I am
You'll never be as rich as I am
You'll never be as tough as I am
You'll never be as white as I am

All the things we've worked for
they will take it all away
Only thieves and beggars
we just simply cannot let them stay

No, you'll never be as good as I am
You'll never be as rich as I am
You'll never be as tough as I am
You'll never be as white as I am

Who says I would want to be like you are
Who says I'm not as rich as you are
Who says I'm not as tough as you are

All the things you're saying
just a bunch of fear and lies
Really makes me wonder
whether time will ever make you wise


I don't want to be as rich as you are
don't want to be as tough as you are
don't want to be as dumb as you are

(MLK)
"...We will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children,
black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics,
will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual,
Free at last, free at last.
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last
..."

This world we live in
is meant for all to share
but many people
act like they just don't care
They go on claiming:
"This land is ours alone!
Throw out those strangers!
got to protect my home..."
