I said, "I've got a life of my own
I've got a life of my own"

I said, "Don't try to make me a part of no plan
Take me or leave me alone
Freedom's a feeling that few understand
I've got a life of my own"

I said, "I ought to know where to sow my own seeds
And when I oughta leave it alone
Trouble's an old friend that I didn't need then
And I had a wife of my own"

Said, "I've got a life of my own
I've got a life of my own"

I caught a beer bottle flat in the face
It laid me back to the bone
Hate is a flavor that's ugly to taste
I had a knife of my own

Now they leave me alone and alive by myself
Lost in the steel and the stone
Hopin' for heaven and headin' for hell
I've got a life of my own

I said, "I've got a life of my own
I've got a life of my own
I've got a life of my own
I've got a life of my own"
