I Call the Tune

I see you strutting in here girl with one thing on your mind
Your gonna try to get the best of any man you find
Girl keep on walking, walking on past me
I've been around the block a time, I call them like I see

I'm not accusing you of being insincere
Before you say another word let me make it clear

Chorus:
You wanna go, lets go
But we gotta do it my way
Hold on, step back
Hear everything that I say
If you wanna love me, you've gotta give me room
Baby we can dance but I call the tune

I've been down that road before of making compromise
Fallen to the power held behind a lover's eyes
Now that I'm much older, I've gotta take a stand
No amount of beauty's gonna change the way I am

It's not too soon and you may think I'm jumping the gun
Baby you can play for keeps when you don't need anyone

You wanna go, lets go
But we gotta do it my way
Hold on, step back
Hear everything that I say
If you wanna love me, you've gotta give me room
Baby we can dance but I call the tune

You wanna go, lets go
But we gotta do it my way
Hold on, step back
Hear everything that I say
If you wanna love me, you've gotta give me room
Baby we can dance but I call the tune

[Thanks to Noah for lyrics]
