    frei.

      C                     G7          C
Die Gedanken sind frei! Wer kann sie er-raten?
                       G7          C
Sie fliegen vorbei wie naechtliche Schatten.
     G7              C            G7        C
Kein Mensch kann sie wissen, kein Jaeger er-schiessen
    F          C            G7          C
mit Pulver und Blei. Die Ge-danken sind 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!]
    C                       G7          C
Ich denke, was ich will und was mich be-gluecket,
                            G7          C
doch alles in der Still und wie es sich schicket.
     G7            C           G7          C
Mein Wunsch und Be-gehren kann niemand ver-wehren,
   F          C           G7          C
es bleibet da-bei: Die Ge-danken sind 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!]
    C                      G7        C
Und sperrt man mich ein im finsteren Kerker,
                        G7       C
das alles sind rein ver-gebliche Werke,
     G7       C          G7          C
denn meine Ge-danken zer-reissen die Schranken
    F          C            G7          C
und Mauern ent-zwei: Die Ge-danken sind 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!]
    C                    G7           C
Ich liebe den Wein, mein Maedchen vor allen,
                         G7      C
sie tut mir allein am be-sten ge-fallen.
    G7           C         G7          C
Ich bin nicht al-leine bei meinem Glas Weine,
     F           C           G7          C
mein Maedchen da-bei: Die Ge-danken sind 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!]
     C                      G7         C
Drum will ich auf immer den Sorgen ent-sagen
     C                        G7           C
und will mich auch nimmer mit Grillen mehr plagen.
    G7         C            G7         C
Man kann ja im Herzen stets lachen und scherzen
    F         C           G7          C
und denken da-bei: Die Ge-danken sind 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!]
