This is 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
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do
Are we ready?
I am 'Cause it`s all about control,
And I've got lots of it

When I was 17 I did what people told me
Did what my father said,
and let my mother mold me
But that was a long ago,

I'm in Control - Never gonna stop
Control - To get what I want
Control - I like to have a lot
Control - Now I'm all grown up

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

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

Jam, woo woo...
Rebel, that's right
I'm on my own,
I'll call my own shots
Thank you

Got my own mind
I want to make my own decisions
When it has to do with my life, my life
I wanna be the one in control

So let me take you by the hand,
and lead you on this dance (Control)
Is what I've got, because I do with 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 control

Control - Now I've got a lot, ooh
Control - To get what I want, oww!
Control - I'm never gonna stop
Control - Now I'm all grown up, ohh!

Free...at last
Out here on my own
Ooh ooh ooh yeah, hee
Now control this...

Uh Control - That's right
Control - Career moves
Control - I do what's right for me
Control - And me wants to groove, Is that ok?
Yeah...Oooh, Control

I've got 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

Hop to it
I'm in control, and I love it, hahaha... thats right
Control
Now I've got a lot
Control
Now I'm all grown up Aahh!
I'm in control - Uhhh
I'm in control - AhhhhI'm in control
Uhhh Don't make me lose it!
