I find it interesting that the song starts off "The best things in life are free" and then John adds the "I wanna be free" line to the song (see Joe's blog post on the song for more about that bit being added).

I wonder if there may be a bit of "free" in the first line meaning "not confined" instead of "no cost" in what John was thinking. Yes, it did mean that to him in the line "I wanna be free", but I wonder if he thought of the first use of the word in the song to mean that too in some roundabout way at some point. Yes, I realize you can't carry that line of thinking on through the rest of the song.

This is beginning to remind me of the conversation we had about Free As A Bird . @Billy Rhythm brought up an interesting way to think about what John was singing about in the song. http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....2/#p140206
