It's a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways
To make certain things pay

Though I'm dressed in these rags
I'll wear sable some day
Hear what I say
I'm gonna ride the serpent

No more time spent sweatin' rent
Hear my command
I'm breakin' loose, it ain't no use
Holdin' me down, stick around

And baby, baby
Remember, remember

It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think like I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine

There'll be women and their fortunes
Who just want to mother orphans
Are you gonna cry?
While I'm squeezin' them dry

Takin' all I can get, no regrets
When I openly lie
And live on their money
Believe me, honey, that money

Can you believe?
I ain't no saint, no complaints
So girl throw out
Any doubt?

And baby
(Baby)
Remember
(Remember)

It's my life and I'll do what I want
It's my mind and I'll think like I want
Show me I'm wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day I'll treat you real fine

(It's my life and I'll do what I want)
Don't push me
(It's my mind and I'll think like I want)
It's my life

(It's my life and I'll do what I want)
And I can do what I want
(It's my mind and I'll think like I want)
You can't tell me
(It's my life and I'll do what I want)
