The Leader is een cover van het door Greyhound uitgevoerde Follow The Leader, dat in 1971 werd uitgebracht.

In dit lied lijkt in het laatste gedeelte, waar je 'ksjjj'-geluiden hoort, gebruikgemaakt te zijn van bekkens o.i.d. tijdens de 'phasing'-techniek, want men wilde net zo'n geluid als in Simon & Garfunkels Bridge Over Troubled Water, dat zo magistraal eindigt, echter men kreeg dit niet voor elkaar. Daarop kwam Robert Long met het voorstel om een beetje veel galm op de microfoon te zetten, vervolgens bij de microfoon te gaan staan en gewoon 'ksjjj, ksjjj, ksjjj' te zingen. Zo gezegd, zo gedaan.

Songtekst

Children of tomorrow
Have no doubt or sorrow
Trust in the leader
And believe in what he says
Fearlessly he fought for us
Lovingly he taught us
How to face the future
And the world we're about to tread

Everyone must try to follow the leader
Open their eyes, let the truth fill their heads
Everyone must try to follow the leader
Build a bridge of truth with the words that he said

Yellow, white or black now
There's no looking back now
We are all his children
And we got to look ahead
With his words to guide us
Good sense will provide us
With a life worth living
Give us all our daily bread

Everyone must try to follow the leader
Open their eyes, let the truth fill their heads
Everyone must try to follow the leader
Build a bridge of truth with the words that he said

Everyone must try to follow the leader
Open their eyes, let the truth fill their heads
Everyone must try to follow the leader
Build a bridge of truth with the words that he said

Ohoho
Everyone must try to follow the leader
Open their eyes, let the truth fill their heads
Everyone must try to follow the leader
Build a bridge of truth with the words that he said

Everyone must try to follow the leader
Open their eyes, let the truth fill their heads
