(spoken:)
Express yourself, don't repress yourself (repeat 4 times)

Chorus:

And Im not sorry [Im not sorry]
Its human nature [its human nature]
And Im not sorry [Im not sorry]
Im not your bitch don't hang your shit on me [its human nature]

You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through my eyes
[express yourself, don't repress yourself]
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
[express yourself, don't repress yourself]

Did I say something wrong?
Oops, I didn't know I couldnt talk about sex
[i musta been crazy]
Did I stay too long?
Oops, I didn't know I couldnt speak my mind
[what was I thinking]

(chorus)

You punished me for telling you my fantasies
Im breakin all the rules I didn't make
[express yourself, don't repress yourself]
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
[express yourself, don't repress yourself]

Bridge:

Did I say something true?
Oops, I didn't know I couldnt talk about sex
[i musta been crazy]
Did I have a point of view?
Oops, I didn't know I couldnt talk about you
[what was I thinking]

(chorus)

Express yourself, don't repress yourself (repeat twice)
Express yourself, don't repress yourself (repeat twice)

(bridge)
(chorus)

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[Im not apologizing]
[would it sound better if I were a man? ]

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[would you like me better if I was? ]
[we all feel the same way]
[i have no regrets]
[just look in the mirror]

(chorus, with the following spoken substitutions)
[i don't have to justify anything]
