I don't care what's right, I don't care what's wrong
I just spend my time tying to get along
I don't need your help, I don't need advice
I don't need no lesson on how to run my life

Do what you want it's all the same
Just count me out of your own game
I'm a fool but that's alright
Rather be the fool yeah, than hung up on rules that fit too tight

You know just what's right, you know just what's wrong
It's all black and white, you knew all along
I don't need your help, I don't need advice
Don't you try and tell me how to run my life

Repeat chorus

Repeat first verse
