Lyrics

You may have given me the breaks
Amended all my life's mistakes
Ooh but pretty baby
You don't own me

You may be more than just a friend
On whose assistance I depend
Ooh but pretty baby
You don't own me

What makes you think you have the right
To say that I owe you my life
A life you say is your life only
Nothing to do with me
Well don't forget for all your power
Even in my darkest hour
You don't own me

You may be fully in control of
Every dream I'll ever hold
Ooh but pretty baby
You don't own me

You might have taught me how to dress
Whereas before I looked a mess
Ooh but pretty baby
You don't own me

I know it sounds so very cruel
To have to say I don't want you
After all the love you've shown me
Let's not start a feud
I'm not your slave don't you forget it
And even if I live to regret it
You don't own me

Why must you always be so right
Why can't you never be wrong
It's not a crime to say you're sorry
And it don't take long
If it only takes a minute to say something that's nice
If it only takes a minute then why not twice

It might interest you to know
If I'm unhappy then I'll go
No point in staying here being lonely
What good would that do
It's time you got it through your head
Although I'm grateful for all your help
You don't own me
