People like to tell you
What you can't do
They may be right
But who's to say

You know you've got
Your own sing to sing
Do your own thing
Do your own thing today

Being free means
You can be your own self
And that means
Doing things your way

Don't be a puppet
Tied to a string
Do your own thing
Do your own thing today

Today is all you
Can count on anyhow
For it's here and it's now
And happiness may spread
It's wings tomorrow

So flap a feather while you may
Do it before that
Bluebird takes wing
Do your own thing
Do your own thing today

Don't let that bluebird fly away
You've got to do your own thing
Do your own thing today
