    Lyrics

    In the zoo
    They gave him a cage
    Circus put a sparkle
    On his face
    Away from life
    The elephant walks
    Shadow across a dream
    Lost for ivory

    Oh, freedom
    Lite a flame

    It's like prejudice
    For the color of your skin
    Prejudice for a woman
    Prejudice for an animal
    Like the elephant
    Of the plain

    Masai moon
    In the morningrise
    Africa—
    The world comes alive
    A matriarch
    Leads the tribe
    To the sweet water
    The cool feelin'
    And the way to survive

    Oh, freedom
    Lite a flame

    It's like prejudice
    For the color of your skin
    Prejudice for a woman
    Prejudice for an animal
    Like the elephant
    Of the plain

    Of the plain
    For greed, not need
    Societies sleep
    Lead the killing hand on

    Young ones
    Full of spark
    A wave of birds
    Across the park
    Kids climbing
    Sliding, riding free
    Elephant child hiding
    Behind a tree

    Prejudice
    For an animal
    Like the elephant
    Of the plain
