You Don't Own Me

Lyrics

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
full lyrics
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

For 1964 The underlying message of those lyrics "If you f**k around on me, then don't say I can't f**k around on you. So f**k off" are about three decades ahead of its time. Pre-Madonna
Great songs but she's pathetic..
Grease ^.^

Gotta love Lesley Gore - loved it when my aunt would lip-sync her songs on her record player! Beautiful voice & powerful!

i back her up 100%! she is saying what all females desire! :) you go girl! @ Deb she's not a whinner, she has a backbone and a voice..don't you? if not, get one!
she's expressing respect and her female power
Deb must have meant 'winner'. This song has a message that is as important today as it was back then.

I agree with you Danny.

gotta love back n the day sassiness!
I wouldn't say she is whining at all. I think she is just showing that she is a woman that can stand on her own 2 feet if a guy tries to tell he what to do, and if that's the case, I respect that. Great song, by the way.
Shes a whinner in this song...
