You can say what you want about me
But you cannot stop me
I've been knocked down it's a crazy town
Ain't nothin' in the world that can keep me
'Cause I'm too proud, I'm too strong,
Feeling sorry for yourself ain't got nobody nowhere
So I (held my head high)
Well I made it (I made it)
That's just the way it goes
I done made it through
I paid my dues yeah
You can't stop me now

You cannot stop me

And people try to mess with Anastacia
'cause I have a mind and I thought I'd better let you know
I don't give a damn about who's around

Knew I (knew I'd survive)

Oh I'll stand on my own two
Tried to hold me down
I paid my dues
Yeah yeah yeah
Took so long to get me here
Are you tryin' to steal my shine?
Then they tear you down

Knew I (knew I'd survive)

I said I paid my, I paid my dues
But you can't stop me now
Oh I paid my I paid my dues
But you can't stop me now
