Janet Jackson — Control lyrics

This is a story about control, my control

Control of what I say, control of what I do

And this time Im 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 Ive got lots of it

When I was 17, I did what people told me

Did what my father said, and let my mother mold me

But that was long ago


Im in control, never gonna stop

Control, to get what I want

Control, I got to have a lot

Control, now Im 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 Ive go to take...

Repeat chorus

That's right, Im on my own,

Ill 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 wanna be the one in control

So let me take you by the hand

And lead you on this dance

Cause what Ive got is because I took a chance

I don't wanna rule the world

Just wanna run my life

So make your life a little easier

When you get the chance just take...

Repeat chorus

Free at last, out here on my own

Now control this

That's right, career moves

I do what's right for me

And me wants to groove

Is that ok?

Repeat bridge

Hop to it

Im in control (and I love it, that's right)

Control, now Ive got a lot

Control, now Im all grown up

Im in control, Im in control

Don't make me lose it
