  • Are you ready?
    Free, free, baby,
    Boy, when you look at me,
    Do you judge me by my cover?
    Got to be kiddin' me, to think that I'm that kind of lover
    I don't mean to disagree, sorry, you can't buy my kisses
    Open your eyes and see,
    True love comes for free

    I'm keepin' my heart open, and hopin' you won't stab me in it
    'Cause I've been in love before, and when I had to pay I didn't
    I'll lose my sanity, tryin' to measure your intentions
    What do you want from me?
    How much will it be?

    No more than you're willing to give
    'Cause you won't pay nothin' for this good lovin', it's for free

    And I won't make you promises,
    I'll just do all I can to be your lover 'cause I understand

    [Chorus]
    The best things in life are free,
    Now that I've discovered what you mean to me
    The best things in life are free,
    Now that we've got each other
    The best things in life are free

    Come on now,
    Oh, yeah

    Alright, I like that,
    Now, Janet

    Oh, Luther

    I know you are my baby, my one and only baby
    You said it twice, I'll say it thrice my baby baby baby

    I've got so much for you,
    And it's easy to give it when I know you feel the same way too
    That's all I expect from you,
    Just do all that you can to be my lover 'cause I understand,
    I do, (Janet: hoo) I do (Janet: hoo, hoo)
    They say,

    [Chorus: x2]

    [Janet]
    BBD tell 'em 'bout free

    Sister sister kickin' all that jazz
    Ain't it funny, honey? Huh? what you never had
    A lot of bone structure, I can make it last
    A minute to win it, I deep fill the past
    Materio went perio, so get the info
    You know, I know, it's not about the dough
    So maybe baby, if you want to be my lady
    I'll forget the riches and the other itches
    Mo' money, mo' money, Jam & Lewis here we go
    Mo' money, mo' money, Luther, Janet here we go
    Mo' money, mo' money, Biv, DeVoe here we go
    Ralph T. (that's me). The best things in life are for free


    Free, baby

    No more than you're willing to give
    'Cause you won't pay me nothin' for this good lovin', it's for free

    And I won't make you promises
    You see,

    I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be, we're gonna be, I'm gonna
    Be do, The very best I can, to be your lover 'cause I understand

    It feels good, it feels good, it feels good, it feels so good

    Ha, ho, oh, wait a minute, I still don't think they've got it
    Let's tell them one more time
    Check it out!
    Everybody needs to know that,

    [Chorus: x2]

    Don't ya know, don't ya know,
    The very best love in life is free,
    And I'm free, yeah Writer/s: JAMES HARRIS III, JAMES SAMUEL III HARRIS, MICHAEL BIVINS, RONALD DEVOE, TERRY LEWIS
