Born Free
by M.I.A.



Man made power
Stood like a tower higher
Hi'ya hi'ya hello
And the higher you go
You feel lower oh oh
So I was close to the ants
Staying under cover, staying under cover
With the nose to the ground

I found my sound
Got myself an interview tomara
Got myself a jacket for a dollar
And my nails are chipped

But I'm eager
And car doesn't work so I'm stuck here
I don't wanna live for tomara
I'll push my luck today
I'll throw this in ya face when I see ya
I got somethin' to say
I'll throw this shit in ya face when I see ya
Cause I got somin' to say

I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free

Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free

You might try to find ways to be happier
You might end up somewhere in Ethiopia
You can think big with your idea
You ain't never gonna find utopia
Take a bite out life make it snappier

Ordinary gon' super trippyer
So I check shit cause I'm lippyer
Oh split the cheque like Slovakia
I don't wanna live for tomara

I'll push my luck today
I'll throw this in ya face when I see ya
I got somethin' to say
I'll throw this shit in ya face when I see ya

Cause I got somin' to say
I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free

Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free

I don't wanna talk about money
Cause I got it
I don't want to talk about hoochies
Cause I've been it
And I don't wanna to be that fake
Cause you can do it
And imitators yeah stick it!

Lord who eva' you are
Com out wherever you are
Lord who eva' you are
Com out wherever you are

I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free
I was born free, born free

Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
Bo bo bo born free
