Verse 1

You can't tell me what to do.

You can't tell me who to like.

I'm an individual, I'm not you.

And I can walk on paths of spike.

Pre-chorus

You can't change my opinion by intimidation,

Threats, hurtful comments, false accusations.

Chorus

Cause when I know I'm not wrong,

Nobody can stop me from being strong

And saying what I believe in.

Girl, learn to deal with criticism.

This world is a diverse place,

Everyone won't agree, don't make a mess.

Everybody won't be her fan like you.

And you can't tell me what to do.

Verse 2

You can't tell me what to do.

You can't hurt me with words.

People will criticize, get a clue.

Disagreement always occurs.

Pre-chorus

You can't change my opinion by intimidation,

Threats, hurtful comments, false accusations.

Chorus

Cause when I know I'm not wrong,

Nobody can stop me from being strong

And saying what I believe in.

Girl, learn to deal with criticism.

This world is a diverse place,

Everyone won't agree, don't make a mess.

Everybody won't be her fan like you.

And you can't tell me what to do.

Bridge

Go ahead and keep attacking me.

I can't be intimidated, can't you see?

When I know I'm right

I'm not afraid of a fight.

And I wrote this song to let you know

Next time you don't like something, just let it go.

Leave it alone, see something else.

Otherwise, the fire called anger swells

And you take it out on people like me.

Can't you see?

Pre-chorus

You can't change my opinion by intimidation,

Threats, hurtful comments, false accusations.

Chorus

Cause when I know I'm not wrong,

Nobody can stop me from being strong

And saying what I believe in.

Girl, learn to deal with criticism.

This world is a diverse place,

Everyone won't agree, don't make a mess.

Everybody won't be her fan like you.

And you can't tell me what to do.
