Janet Jackson – Control lyrics
[Spoken Intro]
This is a story about control
My control
Control of what I say
Control of what I do
And this time, I'm gonna do it my way (My way)
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do
Are we ready?
I am
'Cause it's all about control (Control)
And I've got lots of it

[Verse 1]
When I was 17, I did what people told me, uhh!
I did what my father said, and let my mother mold me
But that was long ago
I'm in

[Chorus 1]
Control
Never gonna stop
Control
To get what I want
Control
I like to have a lot
Control
Now I'm all grown up

[Verse 2]
First time I fell in love, I didn't know what hit me
So young and so naive, I thought it would be easy
Now I know I got to take

[Chorus 1]
Control
Now I got a lot
Control
To get what I want
Control
Never gonna stop
Control
Now I'm all grown up

[Interlude]
Jam, ooh-ooh
Rebel, that's right
I'm on my own, I'll 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

[Verse 3]
So let me take you by the hand, and lead you in this dance
Control
It's what I got, because I took a chance
I don't wanna rule the world, just wanna run my life
Ooh
So make your life a little easier
When you get the chance, just take

[Chorus 2]
Control
Now I've got a lot
Control
To get what I want
Control
I'm never gonna stop
Control
Now I'm all grown up

[Interlude]
Ooh
Free at last
Out here on my own
Ooh ooh ooh yeah, eee
Now control this, uhh
Control
That's right
Control
Career moves
Control
I do what's right for me
Control
And me wants to groove
Is that okay?
Yeah!
Ooh, control

[Bridge 2]
I've got my own mind
Ooh baby
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
I've got my own mind
Wanna make my own decisions
When it has to do with my life
I wanna be the one in control

[Outro]
Hop to it
I'm in control
And I love it
Hahaha, that's right
Control
Now I got a lot
Control
Now I'm all grown up
I'm in control
I'm in control
I'm in control
Don't make me lose it
