Please


I know you not trying to take it there
trying to create a problem
lower the volume of the insecurities in your head
You should already know everything is good
I'm taking care of me and living free
I got this on lock, I ain't going stop
So you really should know better than
to think that you could control me, understand?

you want some good loving, that's what i give you
You know, no other, can bring that kind of fire
Whatever you want, i have no problem doing
But you should know that i want to breathe
So, please, back up off of me
And let me be, please

Don't violate my right to have a life
Sometimes i want to explore the world
Drink at the bar, Dance in the club
When it comes to us
Please, don't tell me what to do
If i want to go out and celebrate
You bets believe i won't hesitate
You should think about that the next time
You feel you can control my mind

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
