Everybody's got the right to be happy
Don't be mad, life's not as bad as it seems

If you keep your goal in sight
You can climb to any height

Everybody's got the right to their dreams

Everybody's got the right to be different

If you want to be different

Even though at times they go to extremes

Go to extremes

Anybody can prevail

Everybody's free to fail

No one can be put in jail for their dreams

Free country!

Means that you've got the choice

Be a scholar

Make a dollar

Free country!

Means that you get a voice

Scream and holler

Grab 'em by the collar

Free country

Means you get to connect

That's it

Means the right to expect
That you'll have an effect
That you're gonna connect

Everybody's got the right to some sunshine
Not the sun, but maybe one of its beams
One of its beams
Rich man, poor man, black or white
Everybody gets a bite
Everybody just hold tight to your dreams
Everybody's got the right to their dreams
