Free The Lady: Video- Lyrics by Buffy Sainte Marie

"Free The Lady" From Album "Sweet America" written by Buffy Sainte Marie.

Taken from the album "Sweet America". "Sweet America" was the twelfth studio album by Buffy Sainte-Marie originally recorded in 1975 but not released until February 1976. It was her last before retiring from music to work on Sesame Street and in education. The album was dedicated to the American Indian Movement.

She was more than a mistress,
he made her his waitress,
he ruled he with strings
that he pulled by his will.
Like a silent partner in a growing business,
she was always informed but never really seen.
And her days dragged
and her nights they were bad.
She was used and abused
in her bedroom
but she stuck to the script
like a well trained actress
as her role was arranged
but it's time for a change!

So open up your eyes!
Your life is just a lie!
Can you free the lady?
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Right Away!
Right Away!

She was never a queen,
though her man was a king
he rambled and gambled,
free like the wind.
While his wife spent her life
lost in the kitchen,
her joy was the children
and the reason she remained!

So open up your eyes!
Your life is just a lie!
Can you free the lady?
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Right Away!
Right Away!


So open up your eyes!
Your life is just a lie!
Can you free the lady?
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Free The Lady!
Right Away!
Right Away!

In Your Mind- in Your Heart, Right Now!
Free The Lady! In Your Mind- in Your Heart, Right Now!
