You Dont Own Me Lyrics

Artist: Lesley Gore

You Don't Own Me

Artist: Lesley Gore (peak Billboard position # 2 in 1963)
Words and Music by John Madara and David White


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

And don't tell me what to do
And don't tell me what to say
And 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

Oh, 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 put me on display

I don't tell you what to say
Oh-h-h-h 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
FADE
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want

my boyfriend left me because he said i'm too strange for society, the way i think, the way i behave is just too different. even he was too ordinary for me, i just accepted him as he is. so, just f.ck off, he can never change me

I think this song is a classic. It is so relevant to me. I think there will come a point in most -if not all- women's lives when they will need to play this song for their other halves.
