Never give a damn about my reputation
You're livin in the past there's a new generation
And a girl can do what she wants to do and that's what im gonna do
And I don't give a damn about my bad reputaion
Ooowhoa-no, not me
Never give a damn about my reputation
I never said i wanted to improve my station
And i'm always feelin good when I'm havin fun
And i don't have to please no one
And i don't give a damn about my bad reputation
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me

Never give a damn about my reputation
I've never been afraid of any deviation
And I don't really care,
If I'm strange,
I ain't gonna change
And I'm never gonna care about my bad reputation
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Break it down
*guitar and drums*
I never give a damn about my reputation
The world's in trouble
There's no communication
And everyone can say what they wanna say,
It never gets better anyway
So why could I care about a bad reputation
Anyway?
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me
Oowhoa-no, not me!

    This song is about joan jett not being able to get a record deal because of her history with the runaways, she is saying that she doesn't care, she'll just make her own record company, good girl joan! Keep rockin!
