PERFORMING ARTS – POP MUSIC: Lesley Gore / “You Don’t Own Me” / T.A.M.I Show / 1964 ☮

You don’t own me
I’m not just one of your many toys
You don’t own me
Don’t say I can’t go with other boys

And don’t tell me what to do
Don’t tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don’t put me on display, ’cause

You don’t own me
No, don’t try to change me in any way
You don’t own me
Don’t tie me down, I will never stay

Oh – and don’t tell you what to do
No – don’t tell you what to say
And please – when I go out with you
Don’t put me on display

I don’t tell you what to say
I – I don’t tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That’s all I ask of you

I’m young – and I love to be young
I’m free – and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

You don’t own me
