Lyrics

Every day in the week I'm in the pit of the city
If I stay too long The people try to pull me down
They talk about me like a dog Talk about the clothes I wear
But they don't realize They're the one's who's square
Hey That's why you can't hold me down
I don't want to be down I got to move on

CHORUS:
Stone Free To do what I please
Stone Free To ride the breeze
Stone Free I can dare
I got to Got to Got to get away Right now Yeah

Alright Listen to this Baby
Women here Women there Try to keep me in a plastic cage
But they don't realize It's so easy to break
Oh But I sometimes I just I just feel my heart kinda running hot
That's when I got to move Before I get caught
Hey That's why Listen to me Baby You can't hold me down
I don't wanna be tied down I got to be free Oh I said

CHORUS:

Yeah Turn me loose Baby

SOLO

Yeah said Stone Free To ride the breeze
Stone Free To do what I please
Stone Free I can't stay Stone Free Got to Got to Got to get away
Stone Free I'm Stone Free Right now
Stone Free Don't try to hold me back
