Do what you want girl, but be what you are
There ain't no right or wrong way, just a play from the heart
It ain't a sign of weakness girl, to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on
While the weak, the weak give up and stay

So do what you want to do, what you want to do
What you want to do, what you want to do
But be what you are, be what you are
Do what you want to do, what you want to do
What you want to do, what you want to do
But be what you are, be what you are

Do you believe in hot cars, leather bars, or movie stars? Is that what's real?
Payin' dues, in Earth Shoes, Chicago blues, is that how you feel?
You can change, you can change, you can change, you can change
But you can't conceal, what's deep inside you
It's your game, it's your deal, it's your game, it's your deal

So do what you want to do, what you want to do
What you want to do, what you want to do
But be what you are, be what you are
Do what you want to do, what you want to do
What you want to do, what you want to do
But be what you are, be what you are

Do what you want to, girl, you can be what you want to
You can do what you want to
You can do, you can be, you can do, you can be, you can
You can change, you can change, you can change, you can change

You can be what you want to, girl
Girl, you can, you can be, you can be, you can be, ooh, oh girl
You can be what you want to, girl, oh girl, you can be what you want
You can do what you cannot
You can change, you can change, you can change, you can change

Maybe girl, no worry girl, no worry girl
You can do, you can do, you can do, do
You can be what you want to
Oh girl, you can do, you can do it, you can do it, you can change
You can change, you can change, you can change, you can change
