It seems that everybody doesn’t understand
Don’t you believe ‘cause I won’t grow up too fast
I’m just movin’ along and, and made my way
I think it’s about time that I should have my say

I’m just movin’ and groovin’
My own life I’m choosin’
No one stand in my way
I do as I may
Let me tell you

Don’t tell me why
I don’t need you to tell me who I am
Don’t tell me
When I can’t figure it out okay
Don’t tell me why
When I know that I shouldn’t do it
Don’t tell me why
I want to be me

I don’t need you to tell me how to sing my song
I don’t need you to be there yelling all night long
It seems you always make it way too rough for me
Why can’t I be what I want to be

Oh yeah, yay

I’m just movin’ and groovin’
My own life I’m choosin’
No one stand in my way
I do as I may
Oh yay
And I’m just movin’ and groovin’
My own life I’m choosin’
No one stand in my way
I do as I may

Let me tell you

Don’t tell me why
I don’t need you to tell me who I am
Don’t tell me
When I can’t figure it out okay
Don’t tell me why
When I know that I shouldn’t do it
Don’t tell me why
I want to be me

I’ll find my way
Up onto the stage and take my place
I know where I belong
So I find my way
Up onto the stage
And I do my thing

Let me tell you

Don’t tell me why
I don’t need you to tell me who I am
Don’t tell me
When I can’t figure it out okay
Don’t tell me why
When I know that I shouldn’t do it
Don’ t tell me why
I want to be me
Yay, yay

Don’t tell me why
I don’t need you to tell me who I am
Don’t tell me
When I can’t figure it out okay
Don’t tell me why
When I know that I shouldn’t do it
Don’ t tell me why
I want to be me
Yay

    My OpinionThis is a song from David's younger years, pre-Idol. He helped write it. It's a very laid-back but confident song. I like it. =D
