        Hey, if you're looking for a little action
        hey, if you're looking for a place to go
        Hey, if you're looking for some satisfaction
        Wow, it's the voices of freedom
        well it's the voices of freedom

        Hey, if you're looking for a little inspiration
        hey, if you're looking for a little bit of soul
        Hey, if you're looking for a little, hey, gut reaction
        It's the voices of freedom, oh babe
        it's the voices of freedom

        The river runs right through those mountains
        voices of freedom
        and reduces that rock to stone
        The ocean reduces that stone to sand
        Hey, it's the voices of freedom, ooohhh baby
        hey, it's the voices of freedom

        I hear the voices of freedom from the left
        I hear the voices of freedom from the right
        I hear the voices of freedom, babe, from all over this world
        Well it's the voices of freedom, ooohhh baby baby
        voices of freedom now now, hey hey

        (Voices of freedom, voices of freedom)
        (voices of freedom, voices of freedom)
        (Voices of freedom, voices of freedom)
        (voices of freedom, voices of freedom)

        Hey, if you're looking for a little action
        hey, if you're looking for a place to go
        If you're looking for a little, oh, hey, inspiration
        It's the voices of freedom
        it's the voices of freedom

        Hey, if you're looking for a little inspiration
        hey baby, looking for a little bit of soul
        If you're looking for a little, ah, hey, gut reaction
        It's the voices of freedom, huh
        ooohhh baby, voices of freedom

        A river runs right down through that mountain
        and it reduces that rock to stone
        The ocean reduces that stone to sand
        Well it's the voices of freedom, hey hey
        oh, the voices of freedom

        I hear the voices coming at me from the left
        I hear voices coming at me, babe, from the right
        Ah, I hear voices coming at me from all over this world
        Wow, it's the voices of freedom
        voices of freedom, oh baby now, ah, ah
        Voices of freedom, oh baby now

        Voices of freedom, voices of freedom
        voices of freedom, help us out now
        Voices of freedom

Voices of Freedom


Hey, if you are looking for a little action
Hey, if you are looking for a place to go
Hey, if you are looking for some satisfaction
Whoa, it's the voices of freedom
Whoa, it's the voices of freedom

Hey, if you are looking for a little inspiration
Hey, if you are looking for a little bit of soul
Hey, if you are looking for a little, hey, gut reaction
It's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)
Oh babe, it's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)

The river runs right through those mountains (voices of freedom)
And reduces that rock to stone (voices of freedom)
The ocean reduces that stone to sand
Hey, it's the voices of freedom, oh baby
It's the voices of freedom
I hear the voices of freedom from the left
I hear the voices of freedom from the right
I hear the voices of freedom, baby, from all over this world
Well, it's the voices of freedom
Oh baby, baby, voices of freedom, hey hey
(voices of freedom)(voices of freedom)
(voices of freedom)(voices of freedom)

Hey, if you are looking for a little action
Hey, if you are looking for a place to go
If you are looking for a little inspiration
It's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)
It's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)

Hey, if you are looking for a little inspiration
Hey, if you are looking for a little bit of soul
If you are looking for a little, hey, gut reaction
It's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)
Oh baby, it's the voices of freedom (voices of freedom)

A river runs right down through those mountains (voices of freedom)
And it reduces that rock to stone (voices of freedom)
The ocean reduces that stone to sand
Well, it's the voices of freedom, hey hey
Oh baby, it's the voices of freedom
I hear the voices coming at me from the left
I hear voices coming at me from the right
I hear the voices coming at me from all over this world
Whoa, it's the voices of freedom
Voices of freedom, now now
Voices of freedom

Voices of freedom (voices of freedom)
Voices of freedom (voices of freedom)
Help us out now
I hear the voices of freedom (voices of freedom) (repeat many times)
