"I Don't Have To Try" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Lukasz Gottwald....
I'm the one, I'm the one who knows the dance
I'm the one, I'm the one who's got the prance
I'm the one, I'm the one who wears the pants
I wear the pants

I'm the one who tells you what to do
You're the one, you're the one if I let you
I'm the one, I'm the one who wears the pants
I wear the pants

Hey, you, follow me or take the lead
Can't you see?
Don't you question me
You just do what I say

I don't care what you're sayin'
I don't care what you're thinkin'
I don't care about anything
Get ready, motherfucker, 'cause I'm happening
I don't care what you're sayin'
I don't care what you're thinkin'
I don't care about anything
Get ready, motherfucker, 'cause I'm on the scene

I don't have to try
To make you realize
Anything I wanna do, anything I'm gonna do
Anything I wanna do I do
And I don't have to try

Don't you disagree
'Cause you know it's all about me
Be at my beck and call
I'm a know-it-all
And it's all your fault

I don't care what you're sayin'
I don't care what you're thinkin'
I don't care about anything
Get ready, motherfucker, 'cause I'm happening
I don't care what you're sayin'
I don't care what you're thinkin'
I don't care about anything
Get ready, motherfucker, 'cause I'm on the scene

I don't have to try
To make you realize
Anything I wanna do, anything I'm gonna do
Anything I wanna do I do
And I don't have to try

I don't have to try
To make you realize
Anything I wanna do, anything I'm gonna do
Anything I wanna do I do
And I don't have to try

    General Comment"I'm the one who's got the prance"?

    WHAT. THE. FUCK.

    Avril's trying to be some badass, trying out Hip Hop now? This is fucking terrible TRASH. And this is coming from someone who's bought her past two albums. *barf* I understand that Pop music isn't generally "deep" lyrically speaking, but this new shit is horrible.

    General Commentthis song sucks. like...i'm the one who wears the pants? i really like her girlfriend song, but when i heard it i assumed it was just a joke song and she was just messing around but after i got the album i realized....she is stupid. and the whole album is like that. which is not cool.

    General Commentthis is one of my fave songs on the album! yeh im really sure avril lavigne is bothered about coming across as a "hiphop badass". ok sure. like she doesn't already have an awesome image. she's experimenting like most artists do and she's having fun. i dont get why people go so crazy about how its not all deep n stuff, who gives one?! there are plenty of songs with deep meanings to listen to. this song and the rest of the album is good to sing along to, dance to, whatever. love it.
