  • I was born to run
    I was born to dream
    The craziest boy you ever seen
    I gotta do it my way
    Or no way at all

    And I was here to please
    I'm even on knees
    Makin' love to whoever I please
    I gotta do it my way
    Or no way at all

    And then you came around
    Tried to tie me down
    I was such a clown
    You had to have it your way
    Or no way at all

    Well I've had all I can take
    I can't take it no more
    I'm gonna pack my bags and fly, baby
    Or no way at all

    So why don't you turn me lose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    Or no way at all

    Why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    I want to fly

    I'm here to please
    I'm even on my knees
    Makin' love to whoever I please
    I gotta do it my way
    I gotta do it my way
    And when you came around
    You tried to tie me down
    I was such a clown
    You had to have it your way
    Well I'm sayin' no way

    So why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    Or no way at all

    Why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    I want to fly

    So why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    Or no way at all

    Why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    I gotta do it my way

    Why don't you turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    Turn me loose
    I gotta do it my way
    I want to fly
