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.

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
