  • This is a great song, great sound. Really "out of the box" for its time, I think.

  • Lesley Gore's rendition of teenage angst:

    "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
    And 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, don't try to change me in any way
    You don't own me, don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay

    Oh, I don't tell you what to say
    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

    A-a-a-nd don't tell me what to do
    Oh-h-h-h don't tell me 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
    Oh-h-h-h 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"
