There’s an old black man on the corner
singing for a dollar or a dime
You might think he’s crazy
You might think he’s lazy
You say he oughta get up off the street
 
Well maybe he just wants to be happy
maybe he just want to be free to sing
And maybe singing on this corner
is exactly where he's meant to be
 
There’s a boy who likes to dress in women’s clothing
And he likes pretty boys to keep him company
You might think it’s unnatural
You say he’s going straight to Hell
You say he oughta be what God intended
 
Well maybe he just wants to be happy
maybe he just wants to be free to love
And maybe what God intended
is exactly what you see
 
There’s someone who’s tired of the office day-to-day
She throws it all away to find tranquility
You might think she’s given up
You say she oughta suck it up
She oughta do what everyone else does (work 9 to 5)
 
Well maybe she just wants to be happy
maybe she just wants to be free to dream
And maybe this office cubicle
wasn’t where she was meant to be
 
I'm on my way... 
 
Maybe we just wanna be happy
Maybe we just wanna be free to live
Maybe we just wanna be.
