The Democrat

(C) Jan Moncrieff / Alan McLean 2006/2008

Chorus 1

Born to live and born to play
Born to make his mark
Born to love and born to say
Born to set himself apart

Who knows where they are going when the first set out
Who knows where they are and what its all about
You think you make a choice but there is no doubt
Its in the lap of the gods when its all worked out

Chorus 2

Born to write and born to lead
Born to make his mark
Born to love and born to leave
Born to change his fellow man.

All your life is blown about by the winds of fate
When all your trying to do is put food on your plate
Should you go now or should you wait
No way to know until it’s all too late

Chorus 3

Born to read and born to roam
Born to make his mark
Born to wander far from home
Born to touch the soul of man

The ships are to take to far far away
Is it time to go or is it time to stay
People waking up to what you’ve got to say
Want you to be their voice in matters of the day

Chorus 4

Born to pain and born to die
Born to make his mark
Born to teach minds to fly
Born to voice the fears of man.

Chorus 5

Born with freedom in his soul
Born with passion in his heart
Equality for all ... his goal
Burns the bard, the democrat
