Today I got up

Today I got up

And ran as fast as I can

Like a black man

Running from the Ku Klux Klan

Man I ran

Like a slave fleeing from his opperessor

In search of freedom

As i glide through space and time

Even the wind could not catch me

See I ran so fast

But I just could not escape me

Today I got up

And ran as fast as I can

Like a black man

Running from the Ku Klux Klan

Man I ran like a slave fleeing for freedom

I look back and no longer could I see them

My oppressors that kept me captive

Today I ran like a slave

Fleeing from his oppressors

In search of freedom

Look at me, like a marathon runner

As I glide through space and time

Even the wind could not catch me

See I ran so fast but just could not

get away... from me (C)
