Free to be...You and Me

There's a land that I see

Where the children are free
And I say it ain't far

To this land, from where we are

Take my hand. Come with me,
Where the children are free.

Come with me, take my hand,

And we'll live . . .

In a land

Where the river runs free-

(In a land)
Through the green country

(In a land)

To a shining sea.

And you and me
Are free to be
You and me..

Music by Stephen Lawrence

Lyrics by Bruce Hart

This song is included in the book.....Free to Be....You and Me by Marlo Thomas.

This was one of my most favorite songs from my childhood.....I LOVED this record.....not tape or CD but record!

After looking at this picture of my kids with their cousins.....this song came to mind. Now I need to listen to record is long gone....but thankfully I now have other options. Go to to find the 35th addition of Free to Be....You and Me.
Happy childhood!!


  1. I love these pictures of the kiddos in the bus...
    they are precious, aren't they? They are all

  2. Looks like we're going to need a bigger bus with all the new kiddos joining the family this year :)
