Joan Osborne – What’s That You Say Lyrics

What’s That You Say By Joan Osborne

Just a young girl taken from her home
No you never paid her no mind
Now fast forward and the child is grown
Yes she lays it all on the line

Growin’ strong just like a tree
(What’s that you say?)
Comin’ now to set you free
(What’s that you say?)
Risin’ up for all to see
(What’s that you say?)
Baby was a refugee
(What’s that you say?)

Captivated by her eyes so brown
You could make a brand new start
When she’s speakin’ you just tumble down
Watch her walk away with your heart

Growin’ strong just like a tree
(What’s that you say?)
Comin’ now to set you free
(What’s that you say?)
Risin’ up for all to see
(What’s that you say?)
Baby was a refugee
(What’s that you say?)

Start the party in your neighborhood
She has brought a new way to be
Well it looks like it would do you good
Don’t you ever wanna get free?

Growin’ strong just like a tree
(What’s that you say?)
Comin’ now to set you free
(What’s that you say?)
Risin’ up for all to see
(What’s that you say?)
Baby was a refugee
(What’s that you say?)
