Liberate yourself….

This has to be one of my all time favourite songs….

Lesley Gore’s  “You don’t own me“… first recorded in 1964

LYRICS:

You don’t own me, I’m not just one of your many toys

You don’t own me, don’t say I can’t go with other boys

 

Don’t tell me what to do

Don’t tell me what to say

Please, when I go out with you

Don’t put me on display,

‘Cause You don’t own me, don’t try to change me in any way

You don’t own me, don’t tie me down ’cause I’d never stay

 

I don’t tell you what to say

I don’t tell you what to do

So just let me be myself

That’s all I ask of you

I’m young and I love to be young

I’m free and I love to be free

To live my life the way I want

To say and do whatever I please

 

A-a-a-nd don’t tell me what to do

Oh-h-h-h don’t tell me what to say

And please, when I go out with you

Don’t you dare put me on display

 

Hey, I don’t tell you what to say

I don’t tell you what to do

So just let me be myself

That is all that I ask of you

 

I am young and I love to be young

I’m free and I love to be free

To live my life the way I want

To say and do whatever…

written by John Madara and Dave White Tricker.
