                Absolutely Free--Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
This song is in 3/4 
Spoken:
G
      The first word in the song is "discorporate"
Eb
      It means 'to leave your body'

Sung:
VERSE 1:
F                Gm 
Discorporate and come with me
F                   Cm
Shifting, drifting, cloudless, starless
Ab     Db      Eb      Gm       F      F    Eb
Velvet valleys and  a  sapphire sea   (wah  wah)

VERSE 2:
F                   Gm                 
Unbind your mind,   there is no time
F                       Cm  
To lick your stamps and paste them in
Ab       Db       Eb  Gm   F        F    Eb
Discorporate, and we  will begin   (wah  wah--Flower Power Sucks)

VERSE 3:
F           Gm         F          Gm  
Diamonds on velvets on goldens on vixen
   F         Gm       F          Gm
On comet and cupid on donner and blitzen
   F      Gm       F          Gm
On up and away and afar and a go-go
  F             Gm             F         G (major)
Escape from the weight of your corporate logo!


CHORUS:
C           A           D     B      E*       
Unbind your mind, there is no time---Boin-n-n-n-g
E--G----D----E------E---G-----D----E 
To lick your stamps and paste them in
E--D--C#-B----B---D-----A-B
Discorporate, and we'll begin

B--D--A--B--B--C#--D--A
(piano solo thirds C#-E | B-D | C#-E | D-F# | C#-E | B-D | A-C#)

G        F        G      F
Freedom! Freedom! Kindly Loving!
G         F   Em7    Dm7   G    F      Em7     Dm7** Eb**  
You'll be absolutely free, only if you want to be


VERSE 4:
F           Gm          F          Gm
Dreaming on cushions of velvet and satin
   F        Gm       F           Gm 
To music by magic by people that happen

   F         Gm         F              Gm
To enter the world of a strange purple jello
    F              Gm            F          G (major)
The dreams as they live them are all mellow yellow

REPEAT CHORUS:

NOTES:
*From the word "Boin-n-n-g" until right before the piano solo, I
believe these are all just single notes played on guitar/bass. It
sounds as if it is playing an Em chord, but I am not exactly sure.
If anyone knows different please let me know.

**At the end of the chorus on the 2nd time, it does some weird
stuff with the Dm7 and Eb chords, and then repeats the last line of
the chorus one more time
