  • We tried and we tried but it's over
    Guess I didn't fit the image in your mind
    Now you tell me to find another lover
    But baby, aren't you gettin' outta line

    Don't tell me what to do
    You've already said we are through
    I'm a page that you have turned
    I'm no longer your concern
    So don't tell me what to do
    I'll love you forever if I want to do

    You're no longer in charge of my thinkin'
    You're already in love with someone else
    So if I'm into all night honky tonkin'
    Well I'm a big girl, I can take care of myself

    Don't tell me what to do
    You've already said we are through
    I'm a page that you have turned
    I'm no longer your concern
    So don't tell me what to do
    I'll love you forever if I want to do
