This is a story about control, my control

Control of what I say, control of what I do

And this time Im gonna do it my way

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do

Are we ready? I am? cause it's all about control

And Ive got lots of it


When I was 17, I did what people told me

Did what my father said, and let my mother mold me

But that was long ago


Chorus:

Im in control, never gonna stop

Control, to get what I want

Control, I got to have a lot

Control, now Im all grown up


First time I fell in love

I didn't know what hit me

So young and so naive

I thought it would be easy

But now I know Ive go to take...


Repeat chorus


That's right, Im on my own,

Ill call my own shots, thank you


Bridge:

Got my own mind

I wanna make my own decisions

When it has to do with my life, my life

I wanna be the one in control


So let me take you by the hand

And lead you on this dance

Cause what Ive got is because I took a chance

I don't wanna rule the world

Just wanna run my life

So make your life a little easier

When you get the chance just take...


Repeat chorus


Free at last, out here on my own

Now control this

That's right, career moves

I do what's right for me

And me wants to groove

Is that ok?


Repeat bridge


Hop to it

Im in control (and I love it, that's right)

Control, now Ive got a lot

Control, now Im all grown up

Im in control, Im in control

Don't make me lose it
