It's a hard world to get a break in
All the good things long gone been taken
But girl there are ways to make certain things pay
Dressed in these rags I'll wear sable some day

Hear what I say, I'm gonna ride that serpent
No more time spent sweatin' rent
Hear my command, I'm breakin' loose, 'cause I ain't no use
Holdin' me down, girl stick around

And baby, remember
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think like I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine
I'll treat you so fine, dear, you're so real

There'll be women and their fortunes
Who just want to mother little orphans
Are you gonna cry while I'm squeezin' them dry?
Takin' all I can get, no regrets, when I openly lie

And live on their money, believe me honey
You can have so much fun with that money
Can you believe, I ain't no saint?
I ain't got no complaints, so girl throw out, yeah any doubt

And baby, remember
It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think like I want
You show me I'm wrong, it'll hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine

It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think like I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine
I'll treat you so fine, babe
I'll give you everything, everything you want
[Inaudible]
