Paul, Billy - Let 'Em In Lyrics



Oh, I say, you've been misled
You've been had
You've been took

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor
Open the door and let 'em in
Ooh, child, let the beautiful people in

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Someone's layin' on the bed
Do me a favor
Open the door and let 'em in
Ooh child, let the soul of people in

Pauly Williams was my twin
Elijah Malcolm, still our friend
Brother Martin, we can't forget John
Bobby Maker, Louis Armstrong
Oh, oh, Lord, now, y'all
Let the folks in, need to see my twin
Let the folks in, they be washing their sins

We hold these truths to be self-evident
That all men are created equal and endowed by the Creator
With certain inalienable rights
When these rights are destroyed over long periods of time
It is your duty
To destroy or abolish that government

Pauly Williams was my twin
Elijah Malcolm, still our friend
Brother Martin, we can't forget John
Bobby Maker, Louis Armstrong
Ah, ah, ah, Lord now
Let the folks in, I wanna see my twin
Let the folks in, we gonna sit in my den

America is in a unique position
She's the only country in history in a position
Actually to become involved in a blood-less revolution
The only we way we're gonna solve it
We gotta unite us
We gotta work together in unity and harmony

Pauly Williams was my twin
Elijah Malcolm, still my friend
Brother Martin, we can't forget John
Bobby Maker, Louis Armstrong
Oh, oh, Lord now

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell, they push it hard
Somebody's ringing it, Lord
Somebody's ringin' the bell, they kickin' hard
Do me a favor
Open the door and let folks in
Let the folks in, let the folks in, let the folks in

Somebody better open the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Somebody better open the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor, do me a favor
Open up your door, open up your door
And let the soul of people in
Gotta let the soul in, let the soul in, one at a time

I have a dream this afternoon
That the brotherhood of man will become a reality in this day
And with this faith
I will go out and carve a tunnel of hope
Through the mountain of despair
With this faith, I will go out with you
And transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows
With this faith
We will be able to achieve this new day
When all of God's children
Black men and white men
Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics
Will be able to join hands and sing with the Negroes in the spiritual of old
Free at last, free at last
Thank God almighty, we are free at last

Somebody's knocking on my door
Somebody's ringing my bell
Somebody's knocking on my door
Somebody's ringing my bell
Somebody do me the favor, do me the favor
Give it a chance
And let the people walk in
I wanna see their face, I wanna see who it is
I think they know me, I think I know who it is
