frei.

Die Ge[C]danken sind frei! Wer [G7]kann sie er-[C]raten?
Sie fliegen vorbei wie [G7]naechtliche [C]Schatten.
Kein [G7]Mensch kann sie [C]wissen, kein [G7]Jaeger er-[C]schiessen
mit [F]Pulver und [C]Blei. Die Ge-[G7]danken sind [C]frei!

(Thoughts are free! Who can guess them?
They fly along like nightly treasures
No man can know them
No hunter can shoot them
With powder and lead
Thoughts are free!)
Ich [C]denke, was ich will und [G7]was mich be-[C]gluecket,
doch alles in der Still und [G7]wie es sich [C]schicket.
Mein [G7]Wunsch und Be-[C]gehren kann [G7]niemand ver-[C]wehren,
es [F]bleibet da-[C]bei: Die Ge-[G7]danken sind [C]frei!

(I think about what I want and what makes me happy
But everything quietly, and just how it comes.
To my wish and desire
Nobody can oppose,
It stays this way:
Thoughts are free!)
Und [C]sperrt man mich ein im [G7]finsteren [C]Kerker,
das alles sind rein ver-[G7]gebliche [C]Werke,
denn [G7]meine Ge-[C]danken zer-[G7]reissen die [C]Schranken
und [F]Mauern ent-[C]zwei: Die Ge-[G7]danken sind [C]frei!

(And if they lock me in a dark dungeon
That is something that can be forgiven
Cause my thoughts
Tear up the bars
And walls.
Thoughts are free!)
Ich [C]liebe den Wein, mein [G7]Maedchen vor [C]allen,
sie tut mir allein am be-[G7]sten ge-[C]fallen.
Ich [G7]bin nicht al-[C]leine bei [G7]meinem Glas [C]Weine,
mein [F]Maedchen da-[C]bei: Die Ge-[G7]danken sind [C]frei!

(I love wine, my girl most of all,
Only me she pleases best
I am not alone
With my glass of wine
My girl is with me:
Thoughts are free!)
Drum [C]will ich auf immer den [G7]Sorgen ent-[C]sagen
und w[C]ill mich auch nimmer mit [G7]Grillen mehr [C]plagen.
Man [G7]kann ja im [C]Herzen stets [G7]lachen und [C]scherzen
und [F]denken da-[C]bei: Die Ge-[G7]danken sind [C]frei!

(That's why I will never worry anymore
And I will never tease myself with whims anymore
Because in one's heart
One can keep laughing and joking
While thinking
Thoughts are free!)
