  • Every time I'm doing what I want to
    Somebody comes and tells me it's wrong
    Whenever I'm doing just as I please
    Somebody cuts me down to my knees
    Yeah, somebody cuts me down to my knees

    In a time when everybody feels entitled
    Why can't I feel entitled too?
    Somebody took away my god given right
    I guess God must have gave it to you
    Yeah, I guess God must have slipped it to you

    Stop what you're doing and get back in line
    I hear this from people all the time
    If we can't be happy then you can't be too
    I'm tired of being told what to do
    Yeah, I'm sick of being told what to do

    There are children today who were lied to
    Told the world is rightfully there's
    They can have what they want, whenever they want
    They take like Caesar and nobody cares
    Live like Caesar and nobody cares

    I can't bring myself to take without penance
    Or atonement or respect from my brow[?]
    Though the world may be spoiled and getting worse every day
    Don't they feel like they're cheated somehow
    I feel like I've been cheated somehow

    Stop what you're doing and get back in line
    I hear this from people all the time
    If we can't be happy then you can't be too
    I'm tired of being told what to do
    Yeah, I'm sick of being told what to do

    I guess nobody on earth is entitled
    Not mothers, not children, not kings
    Not a one single person on God's golden shore
    Is entitled to one single thing
    We don't deserve a single damn thing Writer/s: JACK WHITE
