Verse 1

I'll do it on my own, because I can.

So just why would I ever want a man?

He's gonna tell me, don't do this, do that.

(You'll be a crazy old lady with a cat.)

He's gonna ask me, where are you, come home.

(And they'll eat your face when you die all alone.)

Chorus

I gotta travel the world,

(You can do it holding his hand).

I'm a free spirited girl,

(You're not trying to understand).

I gotta live my own dreams,

(And he can be a part of it!)

I don't want drama and screams,

(So just don't throw a stupid fit!)

Verse 2

I'll do it on my own, because I can.

So just why would I ever want a man?

He's gonna ask me, who's that guy, he's bad.

(He's looking after you, shouldn't you be glad?)

He's gonna teach me, it's baseball, home run!

(I know you hate sports, but come on, this'll be fun!)

Chorus

I gotta travel the world,

(You can do it holding his hand).

I'm a free spirited girl,

(You're not trying to understand).

I gotta live my own dreams,

(And he can be a part of it!)

I don't want drama and screams,

(So just don't throw a stupid fit!)

Bridge

How can I not?

Imagine, he forgot

To give me my space!

(But don't you know

He'll tell you, you look so

Pretty in that dress!)

If I wanted compliments,

I can buy them a dozen for a cent.

You're driving me insane!

I'm done trying to explain!

I'll do it on my own, because I can.

And I know I won't ever want a man.

Chorus

I gotta travel the world,

I'm a free spirited girl,

I gotta live my own dreams,

I don't want drama and screams,

I'll do it on my own, because I can.

And I know I won't ever want a- maaan.
