Gaylord Robinson: [spoken] Up 'till now, my life's been good.
Treated me well, I can't complain.
Met a woman, raised a kid and every day just felt the same.
But there's something deep inside of me
That always wanted to be free.
And now I think the time is right...
[starts to sing raising his voice] to show you what I mean!
[takes off his suit, revealing his dance clothes]
I wanna sing! I wanna dance!
I wanna touch the sky with my own two hands!
If I sing to the world, it'll set me free,
And let me be who I wanna be!
Dance, dance and sing!
I'm gonna give it my everything!
Then fortune and fame will be at my command,
As I whisk you off to a wonderland!
I'll hip-hop and jive with my heart and my soul!
Do the twist and the bump, do the rock and the roll,
I'll tango fandango, manero marengue.
I'll fly like a bird if you set me free!
Like a skylark on the wing,
Or a rosebud in the spring,
Like a gangster and his bling,
Like fish bait from a sling,
Like a puppet with no string,
Like an English feudal king!
Like all those kinds of wonderful, wonderful, things!
I wanna be freeeeeeeee!
