Don't tell me what to do,
Momma quit tryin' when I was two.
Don't tell me what to say,
Cause I'm sayin' it anyway,
Look in my eyes, talk to me nice,
If it's okay, won't have to ask twice,
Then I'll do something for you,
But don't tell me what to do.

Don't tell me where to go,
I don't have to let you know,
Don't tell me who to see,
Cause that's strictly up to me.
I'll go see my friends, go to the bar,
I bought the gas, I own the car,
I think I'll go buy me some shoes.
So don't tell me what to do.

Don't tell me what to wear,
Or how to fix my my hair,
Hey, look it me when I'm talkin' to you,
Don't tell me what to do.

Don't tell me how to act,
You ain't my daddy and that's a fact.
Don't tell me who to love,
Cause, Baby, I will call your bluff,
You ain't my first, you won't be the last,
Push the wrong buttons, I'm outa here fast,
I can find somebody new,
If you tell me what to do,
So don't tell me what to do.
