Freddie's Dead

Freddie's Dead

Curtis Mayfield

Hey Hey - Love Love - Yeh Yeh - Ah Ha
Freddies dead, that's what i said.
Let the man read, the plan, said it singing home
But his home was a rope and he should've known.

Everybody's misused him, ripped him up and abused him.
Another junkie plan, pushin' dope for the man.
A terrible blow, but that's how it goes.
A freddies on the corner now.

If you want to be a junkie wow.
Remember freddies dead.
We're all built up with progress
But sometimes i must confess.

We can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean?
Ain't nothing said, cause freddies dead.
Hey Hey-Love Love-Ha Ha-Love Love-He Hey-Ha Ha-Yeh Yeh

Freddies dead
All i want is some peace of mind
With a little love i'm trying to find.
This could be such a beautiful world, with a wonderful girl.

I need a woman child. Don't want to be like freddie now.
'Cause freddies dead
Everybody's misused him, ripped him up and abused him.
Another junkie plan, pushin' dope for the man.

A freddies on the corner now.
If you want to be a junkie why, remember freddies dead.
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha freddies dead
Hey Hey - Ha Ha - Love Love - Ha Ha
