Lyrics:
This is a 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 long ago

 I'm in control, never gonna stop
 Control, to get what I want
 Control, I got 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 naive, I thought it would be easy
 But now I know I've got to take

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

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

 Got my own mind
 I wanna make my own decisions
 When it has to do with my life, my life
 I wannna 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 move the world, I just wanna run the life
 So make your life a little easier
 when you get the chance just take..

 (repeat chours)

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

 Control, that's right
 Control, career moves
 Control, I do what's right for me
 Control, and we must agree, is that OK?
 Yeah, ooh control

 I've got my 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

 I'm in control
 And I love it, that's right
 Control, now I've got alot
 Control, now I'm all grown up
 I'm in control, I'm in control, I'm in control
 Don't make me lose it
