F                          G
Victim of collision on the open sea

F                     G
Nobody ever said that life was free

F             G
Sink, swim go down with the ship

F                          G
Use your freedom of choice

  F                   G  
I say it again in the land of the free

Bb                        C                        D
Use your freedom of choice, your freedom of choice

           G     Bb          Eb
In ancient Rome, there was a poem

C       G   Bb          Eb  
About a dog who had two bones

C            G    Bb            Eb
He picked at one, he licked the other

C          G            Bb         Eb   C   D
He went in circles till he dropped dead

                 C   D                   D   C   D
Freedom of choice       is what you got

F                  G
Then if you got it you don't want it

F                             G
Seems to be the rule of thumb

F                   G
Don't be tricked by what you see

F                      G
You got two ways to go

     F                   G
I'll say it again in the land of the free

Bb                        C                        D
Use your freedom of choice, your freedom of choice
