Klaus Nomi – You Don't Own Me lyrics

You don't know me, I'm not just one of your little toys
You don't own me, don't say I can't play with other boys
And don't tell me what to do, don't tell me what to say
Please when I go out with you, don't put me on display

Because you don't know me, don't try to shame me in any way
You don't own me, don't tie me down 'cause I never stay
And don't tell me what to say, don't tell me what to do
Just let me be myself, that's all I ask from you

I'm young and I like to be young
I'm free and I like to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

You don't know me, I'm not just one of your little toys
You don't own me, don't say I can't play with other boys
And don't tell me what to do, don't tell me what to say
Please when I go out with you, don't put me on display

I'm young and I like to be young
I'm free and I like to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please
