were not free

I am the greatest but I'm not Ali
I am the baddest but I'm not Tyson 
I am the meanest but I'm not Liston 
I am the fastest but I'm not sugar ray
I had a dream not like dr king
I fight for my rights
But not by marching 
Who's rules do I follow
Nobody but mine
I don't hit home runs like babe Ruth
But I hit plenty
Free at last
Like mlk said
Thank god almighty
But we're not free completely 
Being a black man
In the whites mans world 
We're not free completely
