about

"You Don't Own Me" is a cover of a song written by Philadelphia songwriters John Madara and David White and recorded by Lesley Gore in 1963.

lyrics

You don't own me
I'm not just one of your little toys
You don't own me
Don't say I can't go with other boys

And don't tell me what to do
Don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display cause

You don't own me
Don't try to change me in any way
You don't own me
Don't tie me down cause I'd never stay

I don't tell you what to say
I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

And don't tell me what to do
Oh, don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display

You don't own me

about

Bad Buddy Edmonton, Alberta

Bad Buddy is a foursome making fearsome rock tunes. They’re scrappy as hell and riled up with primal riffs, gang vocals and a whole lotta snarl. Expect a little bit of surf, a dash of Motown and plenty of rip.
