couldn't find this in the DB; probably still under copyright?

just caught up w/ that biopic of Bobby Darin: "Beyond the sea" (liked it in spite of the critics)

never made it into the pantheon of anti VietNam songs?

OK TO LEARN AND SING? ANYBODY KNOW?

TIA, mag

Simple Song of Freedom written and performed by Bobby Darin in 1969

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here, don't want a war

Hey there, Mister Black Man, can you hear me?
I don't want your diamonds or your game
I just want to be someone known to you as me
And I will bet my life you want the same

So come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here, don't want a war

Seven hundred million are you listening?
Most of what you read is made of lies
But speaking one to one, ain't it everybody's sun
To wake to in the morning when we rise?

So come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung, before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here don't want a war

Brother [Incomprehensible] are you busy?
If not won't you drop this friend a line?
Tell me if the man who is plowing up your land
Has got the war machine upon his mind

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here don't want a war

Now no doubt some folks enjoy doin' battle
Like presidents, prime ministers and kings
So let us build them shelves
Where they can fight among themselves
And leave the people be who like to sing

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here don't want a war

I say, let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere
We, the people here don't want a war

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

I listened to the Bobby Darin recording on Spotify, and I have a few minor corrections.

Brother Solzhenitsyn, are you busy?
If not won't you drop this friend a line?
Tell me if the man who is plowing up your land
Has got the war machine upon his mind

Come and sing a simple song of freedom
Sing it like you've never sung before
Let it fill the air, tell the people everywhere

Good work, Joe. We don't get Spotify in the Frozen North.

TIA, Mag: The song was released on a recording back in 1969. There is no reason anyone couldn't sing it today. Best wishes :-)
