Damn all those people who don't lose control
Who will never take a foot out of life
You might not think that I care
But you don't know what I know

And damn all those hippies
Who stomp empty footed
Upon all what's good
All what's pure of the world
You might not think that I care
But you don't know what I know

And bless all those mothers
Who do all they can
Just to take their thoughts out of the line
I might not know what it's like
But I'm glad that you know

Give me a minute there
Just a minute now
It'll come back to me

I was so sure but you,
Freewheelin' troubadour
You took my mind off the scene
And you know when I know then I know
I know that you know

You asked me blind once
If I was a child once
And I said I'm really not sure
How can you know, how can you know
What it is, you don't know

We were a pair once
Of oh such despair oh
We were a child then I'm sure
If we were a child then
We are children no more

Give me a minute there
Just a minute now
It'll come back to me

I was so sure but you
Freewheelin' troubadour
You took my mind off the scene
And you know when I know when I know
I know that you know
You know you know you know when I know
I know that you know
