It's a miserable Friday night
I'm so lonely
And nobody'll give me a ride
To the grateful dead concert...oh rats!

I got to be free
Free as the wind
Free is the way
I got to be

Maybe I'm lost
Maybe I sinned
I got to be
Totally free

Our parents don't love us
Our teachers they say
Things that are boring
So we're running away
And we will be free
And people will see
That when we are free
That's the way we should be

Nothing left to do but get out the 'ol
Glue
(sniff it good now...)

Our parents don't love us
Our teachers they say
Things that are boring
So we're running away

And we will be free
And people will see
That when we are free
That's the way we should be
(we must be free!)
The glue! the glue! I can't find the glue!
(we must be free as the wind)
If I was at the concert now, I'd be ripped!
(we were free when we were born)
I could tighten my headband for an extra rush
During jerry's guitar solo
Then I could go to a midnite show of 200 motels!
(we were born free, but, now we are not free anymore!)
"opal, you hot little bitch!"
"you can take this pin n' hang it in yer ass!"
"you ain't the devil!"
"where's my waitress? "
But we wanna be free
An' were gonna be free

Yes, we want to be free and we're gonna be free
... did you know that
Free is when you don't have to
Pay for nothing
Or do nothing
We want to be free
Free as the wind

Free is when you don't have to
Pay for nothing
Or do nothing
We want to be free
Free as the wind

Free is when you don't have to
Pay for nothing
Or do nothing
We want to be free
Free as the wind

Free is when you don't have to
Pay for nothing
Or do nothing
We want to be free
Free as the wind

This album and “We’re Only In It For The Money” are my two favourite Zappa albums, and I have ALL of his official releases on vinyl!

James Cline

@Marie What? The Radio is Broken is amazing! If I had to wager a guess to Zolar Czakl's question: Mothermania

Marie

Zolar Czakl The Man from Utopia

Jim Dyer

I have all the official releases too, as well as the butchered first issued CDs, but there is one album that I just can't listen to with any enthusiasm. Can you guess which?

Rhea Donker

One of his best album

Chris McMullen

That ending is so badass.

MJS376

Definitely one of my favorite Zappa albums.

Fábio Pedrazzi

I gotta be free
Free as the wind
Free as the way
I gotta be
Maybe I'm lost
Maybe I've sinned
I gotta be totally free
Our parents don't love us
Our teachers they say
Things that are boring
So were running away
And we will be free
And people will see
That when we are free
Thats the way we should be
We must be free
We must be free as the wind
We were free well when we were born
We were born free but now
We are not free anymore
But we wanna be free
And were gonna be free
So we wanna be free
And were gonna be free

Did you know that:

Free is when you don't
Have to pay for nothing
Or do nothing
We want to be free
Free as the wind (4x)
We wanna, yeah-heah, we wanna, yeah-heah,
we wanna, yeah-heah, we wanna be free
We gonna, yeah-heah, we gonna, yeah-heah,
we gonna, yeah-heah, we gonna be free
We gotta, yeah-heah, we gotta, yeah-heah,
we gotta, yeah-heah, we gotta be free
We gotta, yeah-heah, we gotta, yeah-heah,
we gotta, yeah-heah, we gotta be free
We gotta, gotta
Gotta be free
Gotta be free
Gotta be free
Yeah-heah, yeah-heah
(etc., repeat)

My introduction to Frank Zappa was via this record. Great stuff.

Kal El

Nothing left to do but break out the ol' glue
