I wanna be free, Like the bluebirds flying by me, Like the waves out on the blue sea, If your love has to tie me, Don't try me, say good-bye. I wanna be free, Don't say you love me, say you like me But when I need you beside me, Stay close enough to guide me, Confide in me, whoa-oh-oh. I wanna hold your hand, Walk along the sand, Laughing in the sun, Always having fun. Doing all those things Without any strings to tie me down. I wanna be free, Like the warm September wind, babe, Say you'll always be my friend, babe, We can make it to the end, babe, Again, babe, I've gotta say... I wanna be free, I wanna be free, I wanna be free.
