Janet Jackson -
Control
1986
--------------------------------

When I was seventeen
I did what people told me
I did what my father said
And let my mother mold me

But that was long ago
I'm in control
Never gonna stop (control)
To get what I want (control)
Gotta have a lot (control)
Now I'm all grown up

First time I fell in love
I didn't know what hit me *crash*
So young and so naive
I thought it would be easy

And know I know I've gotta take control
Now I've got a lot
To get what I want
Never gonna stop
Now I'm all grown up

Jam woo-woo!
Rhythm--that's right!
I'm on my own
I'll call my own shots
Thank you

Got my own mind
I wanna make my own decisions
When it has to do with my life, my life
I wanna be the one in control

So let me take you by the hand
And lead you in this dance (control)
Is what I got
Because I take a chance
Don't wanna rule the world
Just wanna run my life
Make your life a little easier
When you get a chance
Just take control

Now I got a lot (control)
To get what I want (control)
Never gonna stop (control)
Now I'm all grown up

Ooh!

Freeee at last
Out here on my own
Ooooh ooh ooh yeah-- free!
Now control this

(control)
That's right
(control)
I do what's right for me
(control)
And I want to groove,
Is that OK?
Yeah!

I got my own mind
Oooh, baby
Yeah yeah yeah
Got my own mind
Gonna make my own decisions
When it has to do with my life
I wanna be the one in control
Oooh, control

Let me tell ya
I'm in control
And I love it, that's right

I'm in control
I'm in control
I'm in control
Don't make me lose it
