Songtekst

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative

They say I'm crazy
I really don't care
That's my prerogative

They say I'm nasty
But I don't give a damn
Getting girls is how I live

Some ask me questions
Why am I so real?
But they don't understand me
I really don't know the deal

About a brother
Trying hard to make it right
Not long ago
Before I win this fight, sing!

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live? (Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)
It's my prerogative

It's the way that I wanna live (It's my prerogative)
I can do just what I feel (It's my prerogative)
No-one can tell me what to do (It's my prerogative)
'Cause what I'm doing I'm doing for you now

Don't get me wrong

I'm really not zooped
Ego trips is not my thing

All these strange relationships
Really gets me down
I see nothing wrong with spreading myself around, sing!

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live? (Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)
It's my prerogative

I can do what I wanna do (It's my prerogative)
Truly live my life (It's my prerogative)
And I'm doing it just for you (It's my prerogative)

Tell me, tell me
Why can't I live my life (Live my life)
Without all of the things that people say?

Yo tell it, kick it like this
Oh, no, no
I can do what I wanna do
Me and you
Together, together, together
Together, together

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
I don't need permission, make my own decisions
That's my prerogative
