You say the word and I'll obey
Until I feel like I will overload
You make the rules, you make the rules
But soon I will be on my own
Now I'm going down my road, yeah
You better think about it now I'm free
From this moment I'm listening just to me

Chorus:
Every day when you treat my like a kid,
I'm not you're not you're little boy
I'm not your little toy
Every day when you treat my like a kid,
I'm not you're not you're little boy

I'm not your little toy
Well I'm a man and not a boy
I'm a man and not a boy
I'm a man not a boy now

I used to listen to your words, oh
I thought you knew the best through thick and thin
But you failed, you have failed
Just look at the mess you're in
Cause I made up my own mind
I started thinkin for myself
What you taught me, is going back, back on the shelf
