“I Wanna Be Free” Lyrics

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 goodbye

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, whoa

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
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, whoa

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 through the end, babe
Again, babe, I’ve gotta say
I wanna be free
I wanna be free
I wanna be free
I wanna be free, yeah-ah-ooh

Davy: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Micky: And here comes Bill Chadwick to fix it. Ah. Hi, Bill Chadwick. Everybody say hi to Bill Chadwick. Hi, Bill! Uh. Not now, Davy. I don’t know why—
Mike: We’d like to do a song off of The Monkees’ Headquarters album called “Scroungy Girlfriend”.
