Ellis Dee

Why is he cussin' and calling disgustin'

The city that is now his home

He never smiles or keeps up with styles

He is black and he is all alone

And you ask why he's this way

Well brother you're too blind to see

It's 'cause Ellis Dee ain't free like you and me



Get out of the street don't get high on my beat

Go on home the policeman warns

Just 'cause you're poor why do you declare war

I can't help the way you were born

Why are they holdin' him down

He's spending his life on his knees

'Cause Ellis Dee ain't free like you and me



[Chorus:]

Got to help Ellis

Got to help Ellis

You know we got to help Ellis Ellis Dee

Try and help Ellis you and me

Got to get to Ellis hear his plea

Try and help Ellis get free



Ellis got hooked he got booked and he shook

In his cold little shivery cell

While out on the street in that same funky beat

Mister pusher was doing well

And Ellis Junior cries tears his daddy can't see

'Cause Ellis Dee ain't free like you and me



[Chorus]



'Cause Ellis Dee ain't free like you and me

No Ellis Dee ain't free like you and me
