  • This is story about control
    My control, control of what I say
    Control of what I do
    And this time I'm gonna do it my way
    I hope you enjoy this as much as I do
    Are we ready?
    I am 'cause it's all about control
    And I've got lots of it

    When I was seventeen I did what people told me
    I did what my father said
    And let my mother mold me
    But that was a long ago

    I'm in control, never gonna stop
    Control, to get what I want
    Control, I like to have a lot
    Control, now I'm all grown up

    First time I fell in love, I didn't know what hit me
    So young and so naïve, I thought it would be easy
    But now I know I got to take

    Control, now I've got a lot
    Control, to get what I want
    Control, I'm never gonna stop
    Control, now I'm all grown up

    Jam, woo woo
    Rebel, that's right
    I'm on my own
    I'll call my own shots
    Thank you

    Got my own mind
    I want to make my own decisions
    When it has to do with my life, my life
    I wanna be the one in control

    So let me take you by the hand
    And lead you on this dance (control)
    Is what I've got, because I took a chance
    I don't wanna rule the world
    Just wanna run my life (ooh)
    So make your life a little easier
    When you get the chance just take control

    Control, now I've got a lot, ooh
    Control, to get what I want, oww
    Control, I'm never gonna stop
    Control, now I'm all grown up, ooh

    Free, at last
    Out here on my own
    Ooh, ooh, ooh yeah, hee
    Now control this

    Uh control, that's right
    Control, career moves
    Control, I do what's right for me
    Control, and me wants to groove, is that okay?
    Yeah, ooh, control

    I've got own mind
    Ooh baby
    Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
    I've got my own mind
    Wanna make my own decisions
    When it has to do with my life
    I wanna be the one in control

    Hop to it
    I'm in control, and I love it, hahaha, that's right
    Control
    Now I've got a lot
    Control
    Now I'm all grown up, aah
    I'm in control, uh
    I'm in control, aah, I'm in control
    Uh, don't make me lose it Writer/s: James Harris III, Terry Lewis
