"Freddie's dead", that's what I said
Let the man rap a plan
Said, he'd see him home
But his hope was a rope
And he should've known

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him up and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushin' dope for the man

A terrible blow but that's how it goes
A Freddie's on the corner now
If you wanna be a junkie, wow
Remember Freddie's dead

We're all built up with progress
But sometimes I must confess
We can deal with rockets and dreams
But reality, what does it mean?
Ain't nothing said 'cause Freddie's dead

Hey, hey
Love, love
Ha, ha
Love, love

Yeah, yeah
Ha, ha
Yeah, yeah
Freddie's dead

All I want is some peace of mind
With a little love I'm trying to find
This could be such a beautiful world
With a wonderful girl
Why I need a woman child?
Don't wanna be like Freddie now
'Cause Freddie's dead

Everybody's misused him
Ripped him up and abused him
Another junkie plan
Pushin' dope for the man

A Freddie's on the corner now
If you wanna be a junkie, why?
Remember Freddie's dead
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Freddie's dead
