Repeat after me I am free

Composée et interprétée par Matthieu Bottiau et Olivia Denis

Say hello say sorry

Blow your nose kiss auntie

Wash your hands brush your teeth

Stop giggling go to sleep

Do what I say

Do your homework pass your exam

Only one sweet say thank you Mum

Clean up your mess hurry up quick

And for God’s sake stop being sick

Now repeat after me

Yes you are free yes you are free

Yes you are free you are free

Go to work be model

Feed your kids act normal

Don’t protest watch TV

No U turn drive gently 

Do what is said

Follow fashion don’t jump the queue

Don’t drink too much and flush the loo

Obey the law respect the Crown

Pay your taxes vote for the clown 

Now repeat after me

Yes we are free yes we are free

Yes we are free we are free

Go shopping hold the door

Keep smiling to neighbour

Walk the dog comb your hair

Don’t park here one way there 

Do what you should

Stop your habits and addictions

And what about your obsessions

You’re free to think you are silly

But you’re silly to think you’re free 

Now repeat after me

Yes I am free yes I am free

Yes I am free yes I am free

“Go to work, send yours kids to school

Follow Fashion, act normal

walk on the pavement,

watch t.v.

save your old age,

obey the law

Repeat after me: I am free”
