    Power to the people (oh, hey, hey)

    Power to the people (oh, oh, oh, oh)

     

    I’ve been tired of this thinking (hey)

    so I’ve drowned it out with drinking (oh)

    Tastes like a bitter pill but I’ll just wash it down

    With the taste of something sweet that some doctor gave me now

    And this is a madness

    I’m not giving in

     

    We’re shining like diamonds

    With fire in our bones

    Standing beside you I’ve a feeling that I’ll never walk alone

     

    We’re children of the universe, don’t you know

    Dancing on the edge of time and it’s ours to own

    Just children of the universe

     

    Power to the people (oh, hey, hey)

    Power to the people (oh, oh, oh, oh)

    Power to the people (oh, hey, hey)

    You know what we want and we’ve gotta get it now

    Something’s stirring in the silence (hey, hey)

    And it reeks of passive violence (oh)

    Hold on tight this opportunity we’ll take, put an end to all this suffering before it gets too late

    Hopes on the horizon

    I’m not giving in

     

    We’re children of the universe don’t you know

    Dancing on the edge of time and it’s ours to own

    Just children of the universe

     

    We’re shining like diamonds

    With love in our hearts

    They said it’s the end but I’ve a feeling

    It might just be the start

    As I am awakened with fire in my bones

    Standing beside you I’ve a feeling that I’ll never walk alone

     

    We’re children of the uni, children of the uni,

    Children of the universe don’t you know

    Yeah dancing on the edge of time and it’s ours to own

    ‘Cause we are children of the universe

    Just children of the universe

     

    Power to the people
