I’ve got a plan, don’t you understand
Gonna leave this place today
It’s hard on us just keepin’ up
There ain’t no easy way

I have a dream for you and me
To walk on them streets of gold
It may rain and it may snow
But baby we gotta go

Look around and hear the sound
Of our people they’re proud and poor
Tired of trying and crying for crumbs
And fighting for nothing but war

Is there no peace, no harmony
Left in this wretched world?
Maybe it does in Heaven above
But its hell on you and me girl
