You won't have to borrow
And you won't have to beg
Not likely to follow
Not so easily lead

And it could be the worst time
And it happens so fast
But it's not the first time
And it won't be the last

And there's nothing really I can do
And there's nothing really I could say
You do what you want to
You don't see it any other way, any other way
You don't care what other people say

And it's there for the taking
So helpless and frail
A man in the making
Who is destined to fail

You don't have the patients
You don't have the time
You severed relations
When you made up your mind

And there's nothing really I can do
And there's nothing really I could say
You do what you want to
You don't see it any other way, oh, any other way
You don't care what other people say

I'm not gonna get down on my knees
And kiss your feet
Say pretty please if you say so
I'm not gonna play down but I know

You won't have to borrow
And you won't have to beg
Not likely to follow
Not so easily lead

And there's nothing really I can do
And there's nothing really I could say
You do what you want to
You don't see it any other way, any other way
You don't care what other people say

You don't see it any other way, any other way
You don't care what other people say
