Lyrics

What can one little person do?

What can one little me or you do?

What can one little person do to help this world go round?

One can help another one

And together we can get the job done.

What can one little person do to help this world

 

Harriet Tubman was alone on the darkened road to freedom

But she couldn't leave her people far behind

Moses stretched out her hand.  She led them to the Promised Land

'Cause she knew that she had justice on her side.

 

When Sojourner Truth was freed, she got down on her knees

And prayed to God to help her on her way

With her voice and with her might, she fought for what was right

‘Cause she knew that she had justice on her side

 

Rosa Parks sat on the bus, and the driver said, "You must

Move to the back of the bus or else be thrown in jail

But she stayed and stood her ground, and she brought that old law down

For she knew that she had justice on her side.

 

Brother Martin Luther King, he told the world, "I Have a Dream"

He led this country's fight for human rights

We must fight for liberty until all of us are free

And we'll know that we have justice on our side.
