Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

Some people spend their time just running around in circles,
Always chasing some exotic bird.
I prefer to spend some time just listening
For that special something that I've never, ever heard.
I'd like a new song to sing,
Another show, or somewhere entirely different to be.
But baby, you make me feel so free.
And so I yearn for mysteries calling me,
That's the muse, that's the muse.
But we only burn up with that the passion
When there's absolutely nothing left to lose.
I may get to spring, and it's no bed of roses.
It's just more hard work and bad, bad, bad company.
But baby, I want to say that you make me feel so free.
Baby, you make me feel so free.
I heard them saying that you can have your cake and eat it,
But when all I wanted was just one free lunch.
How can I eat it when the man that's next to me now, he's grabbed it,
Lord, he beat me, he a load, and beat me to the punch.
How can I even talk about freedom, when you know
Oh, its sweet mystery,
But baby, you, you, you make me feel so free.
I'm gonna lay my cards just right down on the table
And spin the wheel and roll the dice.
And whatever way it comes out, and whatever way it turns out,
Baby, you know, well, that's the price.
But well , I'll order again, there's no need to explain.
I just need somewhere to dump all my negativity.
But baby, remember, you make me feel so free.
What you say, what you say, what you say, what you say, what you say?
You make me feel so free.
What you say, what you say, what you say, what you say, what you say, what you say, what you say, to say?
You make me feel so free.
Oh, yeah, baby, you've been so good to me.
Say it again, say it, say it, say it again.
You make me feel so free.
Oh, you make me feel so free, so doggone free.
You make me feel so free.
Free, free.
