This is a place where we don’t need cops

This is a place where we don’t need locks

Where honesty has made us free

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

 

This is a place we can play in the parks

Go for a walk even after dark

Ride our bikes without scrapes or fights

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

 

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

I HOLD THE LIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE

A VISION OF HOW IT CAN BE

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

 

This is a place that is all drug free

Where violence is but a memory

Where we live and play in harmony

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

 

This is a place where there is no lack

And no one is rich off another’s back

Red, brown, yellow, white or black

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM   (CHORUS)

 

This is a place where there is no waste

And Nature takes her honored place

Where we don’t destroy and we don’t deface

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM

 

This is a place of family

Of friends and folk who are neighborly

Enough to eat and peaceful sleep

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM   (CHORUS)

 

This is the neighborhood we share

And I know that love will take us there

It’s in my hands; I take my stand

I HAVE A DREAM, I HAVE A DREAM   (CHORUS)
