Lyrics:

Looking out my window
And I'm a thinking of tomorrow
And I'm a wondering what the future will be
Thinking of the children
Who are the victims of oppression
Beaten down by wars, and eaten up by starvation

And I'm saying
When will this ugly war be over
And the children can go out and play
I wanna see
When will all oppression will be done
And the people will rise up and say

Freedom at last, freedom at last, so free
Freedom has come, freedom has come, ohh yeah

Sitting in seclusion
And I'm in my meditation
And I can hear the voice of the sufferers cry for justice - ooh
Another ugly war is a raging
Threats of nuclear war is arising
And the world is gripped by fear of mass destruction

I'm a saying
When will this ugly war be over
And the children can go out and play, I wanna see
When will all oppression will be done
And the people will rise up and say

Freedom at last, freedom at last, so free,
Freedom has come, freedom has come,
Oh yeahy, oh uh yeah, nuh

Umhm mm, so much bloodshed and sorrows
There is no future for the youths of tomorrow, yeah
So many mothers crying
Too many funerals, oohh
When will it end

Saying, when will this ugly war be over
And the children can go out and play, I wanna see
When will all oppression will be done and the people will rise up and say
Freedom must come...
