El solo de guitarra que inicia cuando se dice “I want fly, I’m free bird” (quiero volar, soy un pájaro libre) es la expresión máxima de rock.
Las letras se produjo cuando Allen Collins estando con su novia, se dio cuenta de que la música siempre había estado en primer lugar para el, entonces el le hizo una pregunta: “Si me fuera de aquí mañana tu todavía te acordarías de mi?” (If I leave here tomorrow would you still remember me?”) Esta pregunta se convirtió en la línea de apertura de “Free Bird”.

Free Bird
If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on, now
‘Cause there’s too many places
I’ve got to see

But, if I stayed here with you, girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird, you’ll can not change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows, I can?t change
Bye, bye, baby it’s been a sweet love

Yeah, yeah
Though this feeling I can’t change
But please don’t take it so badly
‘Cause the Lord knows
I’m to blame

But, if I stayed here with you girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird, you’ll can not change
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

And this bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows, I can’t change
Lord help me, I can’t change
Lord I can’t change

Won’t you fly high, free bird, yeah?

>"Bobby Brown" Frank Zappa vs Raros covers

>

Bobby Brown” es una canción del mítico Frank Zappa lanzada en el disco Sheik Yerbouti en 1979, es uno de sus mas grandes éxitos, especialmente en Europa, pero censurada en EE.UU. debido a su satírica letra sobre el “sueño americano” y el contenido sexualmente explicito. La canción es la narración del típico “hijo afortunado” (Bobby Brown) de familia acaudalada y  “el chico más lindo de la ciudad”, representante fiel del sueño americano, al cual su vida cambia cuando tiene un encuentro sexualmente traumatico con “Freddie” una activista lesbiana “me apretó los huevos y ahora me corro a la primera”, esto provoco que con el tiempo se convirtiera en gay y posteriormente practicara sadomasoquismo con Fred. A continuacion unos extraños covers de esta gran canción.

Bobby Brown
Hey there, people, I’m Bobby Brown
They say I’m the cutest boy in town
My car is fast, my teeth is shiney
I tell all the girls they can kiss my heinie
Here I am at a famous school
I’m dressin’ sharp ‘n’ I’m
actin’ cool
I got a cheerleader here wants
to help with my paper
Let her do all the work ‘n’
maybe later I’ll rape her

Oh God I am the American dream
I do not think I’m too extreme
An’ I’m a handsome sonofabitch
I’m gonna get a good job ‘n’ be real rich

get a good
get a good
get a good
get a good job

Women’s Liberation
Came creepin’ across the nation
I tell you people I was not ready
When I fucked this dyke by the name of Freddie
She made a little speech then,
[Más Letras en http://es.mp3lyrics.org/a4m]
Aw, she tried to make me say “when”
She had my balls in a vice,
but she left the dick
I guess it’s still hooked on, but
now it shoots too quick

Oh God I am the American dream
But now I smell like Vaseline
An’ I’m a miserable sonofabitch
Am I a boy or a lady…I don’t know which

I wonder wonder
wonder wonder

So I went out ‘n’ bought me a leisure suit
I jingle my change, but I’m still kinda cute
Got a job doin’ radio promo
An’ none of the jocks can even tell I’m a homo
Eventually me ‘n’ a friend
Sorta drifted along into S&M
I can take about an hour on the tower of power
‘Long as I gets a little golden shower

Oh God I am the American dream
With a spindle up my butt
till it makes me scream
An’ I’ll do anything to get ahead
I lay awake nights sayin’, “Thank you, Fred!”
Oh God, oh God, I’m so fantastic!
Thanks to Freddie, I’m a sexual spastic
And my name is Bobby Brown
Watch me now, I’m goin down,
And my name is Bobby Brown
Watch me now, I’m goin down, etc.

She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headin’ for a Showdown

Bad dreamer, what’s your name
Looks like we’re ridin’ on the same train
Looks as through there’ll be more pain
There’s gonna be a Showdown

And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There’s gonna be a Showdown

Save me, oh save me
It’s unreal, the suffering
There’s gonna be a Showdown

And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

somebody to love
When the truth is found to be lies
and all the joy within you dies
don’t you want somebody to love
don’t you need somebody to love
wouldn’t you love somebody to love
you better find somebody to love

When the garden flowers baby are dead yes
and your mind [, your mind] is [so] full of BREAD
don’t you want somebody to love
don’t you need somebody to love
wouldn’t you love somebody to love
you better find somebody to love

your eyes, I say your eyes may look like his [yeah]
but in your head baby I’m afraid you don’t know where it is
don’t you want somebody to love
don’t you need somebody to love
wouldn’t you love somebody to love
you better find somebody to love

tears are running [ahhh, they’re all] running down your breast
and your friends baby they treat you like a guest.
don’t you want somebody to love
don’t you need somebody to love
wouldn’t you love somebody to love
you better find somebody to love
