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 out with other boys.

And don't tell me what to do,
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.

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
And I'm free, and I love to be free
To live my life the way that I want
To say and do whatever I please

And don't tell me what to do,
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,
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'm free,
To live my life the way that I want
To say and do whatever I please
