Tell me I'm not good enough
You tell me I'm a bore
But I don't have to tolerate your insults anymore
I just wanna be with someone else instead of you
'cause every time you speak to me to me you tell me what to do
Tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do
Tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do

Oh, I remember in the school yard when you asked me out
I didn't really realize what living's all about
I was just sixteen years old when I married you
And now it's just a stupid mess, I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do, oh
I don't know what to do
Don't know what to do
I Don't know what to do

I don't know what's bothering you
But lately I'm so sickened by you
I don't know what's bothing you
'cause lately you just tell me what to do
You tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do
Tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do

That was all some time ago, by hell I shoulda known
And even though I'm living with you, I'm living on my own
There's no one left to talk to now, there's just no getting through
'cause every time you speak to me you tell me what to do
Don't tell me what to do Repeat 3x
Tell me what to do

I don't know what's bothering you
But lately I'm so sickened by you
I don't know what's bothing you
'cause lately you just tell me what to do
You tell me what to do, oh
Tell me what to do, oh
