Lyrics

[Verse] 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 [Chorus] 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 [Verse] 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 [Chorus] 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 [Bridge] 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 [Coda] 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
