Lyrics
You don't own me, don't hang around
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around honey
You don't own me no more

You made your bed an now you're trying to hide it
You made a bed of nails
Although you pinned me down I never tried to fight it
You had me on the rails
And now your snakeskin colours are flying
You're trying to hide your poison disguise
So wipe the crocodile tears that are falling
They only make me realise

You don't own me, don't hang around
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around honey
You don't own me no more

I can read the lines, the lines your face is showing
They say your time has come
And every single line your evil heart is scheming
Ain't gonna fool no-one
I'm gonna turn my back on the wild side
And take my rainfall way to the sun
Across the plains of a new horizon
Don't say goodbye, I'm already gone
And in the dreams of your fantasy love world (?)
You tore the hole right out of your life
And got a one-way ticket to nowhere
And now at last I realize

You don't own me, don't hang around
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around honey
You don't own me no more
You don't own me, don't hang around
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around honey
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me, don't hang around honey
You don't own me no more
Oh, you don't own me no more....
