Testo[modifica | modifica sorgente]

 Think (think) think (think) think (think) think (think) 

 You think (think) think (think) think about it 

 You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me  

 Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free  

 Let's go back, let's go back, let's go way on back when  

 I didn't even know you, you couldn't have been too much more than ten  

 I ain't no psychiatrist, I ain't no doctor with a degree  

 It don't take too much high IQ's to see what you're doing to me  

 You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me  

 Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free 

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom  

Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, oh freedom 

Hey, think about it  

You, think about it 

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)  

I was gonna change, but I'm not, to keep doing things I don't  

Hey think about what you're trying to do to me  

Baby, think, let your mind go, let yourself be free 

People walking around everyday, playing games that they can score  

Trying to make other people lose their minds, be careful you don't lose yours 

Yeah think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me  

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free 

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)  

Without eachother there ain't nothing people can do  

Yeah yeah, think about me (what you're trying to do to me)  

'Till the fall of the night, think about it right now 

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom  

Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, freedom  

Hey, you, think about it 

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)  

I was gonna change, but I'm not, if you keep doing things I don't 

Yeah (think) think about what you're trying to do to me  

Baby, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free 

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)  

Without eachother there ain't nothing people can do 

Yeah yeah, think about me (what you're trying to do to me)  'Till the fall of the night, think about it baby  (Think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about it)  (Think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about it)  (Think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about it)  (Think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about - ah me, think about it)  You had better stop and think before you think  Think!
