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.
