Free World
by Kirsty MacColl

(kirsty maccoll)

I thought of you when they closed down the school
And the hospital too
Did they think that you were better?
They were wrong
You had so many friends
They all left you in the end
'cause they couldn't stand the patter

And I'll see you baby when the clans rise again
Women and children united by a struggle
Going down
You've got to walk into the water
With your sister and your daughter
In this free world

If I wore your shades could I share your point of view?
Could I make you feel better?
Paint a picture, write a letter?
Well I know what you're saying
But I see the things you do
And it's much too dangerous
To get closer to you

And I'll see you baby when the clans rise again
Women and children united by the struggle
Going down
With a pocketful of plastic
Like a dollar on elastic
In this free world
(I wouldn't tell you if I didn't care)

And I'll see you baby when the clans rise again
Women and children united by the struggle
And the ghettoes are full of mercedes benz
And you'd never hurt a friend
Who wouldn't tell you

It's cold and it's going to get colder
You may not get much older
You're much too scared of living
And to die is a reliable exit
So you push it and you test it
With 'thunderbird' and 'rivin'

And I'll see you baby when the clans rise again
Women and children united in the struggle
In this free world baby
Got to take it got to grab it
Got to get it up and shag it
In this free world

Going down
You've got to get into the water
Like a lamb goes to the slaughter
In this free world baby
Going down
With a pocketful of plastic
Like a dollar on elastic
In this free world
(I wouldn't tell you if I didn't care)

I HATE that she died. Geniuses shouldn't have to die...

Robert Scott

to save her children.

Arcturas the Moo Cow

She was perfect. You only get one artist like Kirsty in your lifetime, if you are lucky.

Kate Burgess

In this free world baby, got to take it, got to grab it, got to get it up and SHAG it! The genius that was Kirsty McColl ❤️

I would have LOVED to sit down and have a beer with this lady. Can you imagine ? Easily one of my fave female artists of all time. Such a tragic loss.

Mark Atkins

If you did, it’ll have to be at a bar in Guadalajara...

I always felt a kind of long-distance bond with Kirsty. We were born within months of each other and as another child of divorce, I think we had the same sense of looking at "normal" families from the outside. A great, very human writer and singer and gone way the hell too soon, with her killer having essentially bought his way out of justice.

Kirsty was a genius. I loved this album from day one. The older I get; especially in these times, she gets smarter and smarter. It's like she predicted the future.
