"I Want to Be Free [Jailhouse Rock]" as written by Todd Anthony Shaw, J. R. Bailey, Isaac Hayes, Melvin Kent, Kenneth Williams, Willie Beck, Leroy Bonner, Marshall E. Jones, Ralph Middlebrooks, Marvin R. Pierce, Clarence...
There's no joy in my heart,
Only sorrow
And I'm sad
As a man can be
I sit alone in the darkness
Of my lonely room
And this room
Is a prison to me

I look at window
And what to I see
I see a bird
Way up in the tree
I want to be free free
Free - ee - ee - ee
I want to be free
Like the bird in the tree

What good are my eyes,
They can't see you
And my arms,
They can't hold so tight
I have two lips
That are yearning,
But they're no good to me
Cause I know I can't kiss you tonight

I look at window
And what to I see
I see a bird
Way up in the tree
I want to be free free
Free - ee - ee - ee
I want to be free
Like the bird in the tree
I want to be free
Like the bird in the tree
