Dusty Springfield - I Wanna Be A Free Girl Lyrics

I was there when dreams came true
Stuck around when they fell through
Lifes too short to play with your emotions
I gotta travel, I gotta travel

Said I wanna see the world
I wanna be a free girl
Said I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl, mmm

The silly games you played werent new
Lost them all
But they beat you, too
Theres no time for fooling with children
I gotta travel, I gotta travel

Said I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl
Yes, I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl, oh

Oh, lifes too short to play with your emotions
I gotta travel, I gotta travel
Said I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl
Yes I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl
Yes I wanna see the world
I gotta be a free girl
Said I wanna see the world
Yeah, gotta be a free girl

  1. Abu Khalia

    Wow this song has Philly written all over it. The Late Linda Creed wrote this song and it sounds like something that the Stylistics would've song.

  2. Betty Martinez

  3. mowestjohn

    My favorite Dusty song.

  4. James Ballard

  5. James Ballard

    A PHILLY SOUND..................

  6. N Z

    Oh my God. I seem to be addicted to her :(

  7. Thomas Norman

    closer to God, better life...

  8. Lori Romano

    Well, Dusty got to see the world and she was pretty much a free girl (as free as an international superstar can be I guess).
    Love her.

  9. hnc52

    One of Dusty's finest moments...those hand gestures!

  10. Thomas Norman

    Its so.....once you start listening to her.....the entire day is gone....

    Lori Romano

    Ha! Thomas Norman....that's pretty much the size of it. But can't think of a more worthwhile way to spend the day really. Enriching one's life. ; ) This You Tube is a gold mine of Dusty. Just watched her two live versions of "Since I Fell For You" both splendid.

    Thomas Norman

    call me irresponsible.....

    Absolutely beautiful, she got lost coming to the U.S. that is where her down fall came. every one wants to come to America, but for Dusty the 70's ended up being bad for her. L.A. can chew you up and spit you out. but she lived there off and on till 1989. I adore her. U. S. A.

    Lori Romano

    Yes, the move was probably a mistake for her, and especially to stay so long. But she did record lots of great LP's while in America. She didn't want to do what the American singers were doing. She was offered a Las Vegas gig, opening for Dean Martin. Not her thing, she passed. So they booked her at nice Supper Clubs. Also not her thing (the clanging of the forks and plates). Think she would have like to have tried acting in a film. Wish she would have gotten that opportunity. But her time was probably better spent in the recording studio. Lucky for us.

    Wanda Colon

    If only she stayed in UK.....She could fly to the states whenever she wanted, enjoyed the trip, do the LP'S and return home, where her true and loyal friends were waiting.......maybe things would be different for her!

    She's not regularly seen as a sex symbol but in the late 60's she was quite a hottie.
