"What I Want" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
The fury of excuses
Mostly bores me to death
Just leave the answers lying
While I'm keeping what I've kept

It's got me on the edge of my seat
We're waiting for a change
I pulled myself together
I stood and started saying

I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah
I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah

You can all see my failure
They're easy enough to find
Do what you want, you always talk a lot
But I can't waste the time

I could spend it with my baby
You know I'll keep her up all night
It's overblown, and it's not a joke
And you're on your own this time

I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah
I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah

Jury from the sidelines
Seems to make the air smell stale
I won't be locked up by right and wrong
Gonna leave and never need the bail

The time is blowing by, knocked me offa my feet
My head hurt from the pain
The clock was a-ticking, the conductor was a-callin
All aboard, it's time to take this train

I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah
I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah

You can all see my failure
They're easy enough to find
Do what you want, you always talk a lot
But I can't waste the time

I could spend it with my baby
You know I'll keep her up all night
It's overblown, and it's not a joke
And you're on your own this time

You can all see my failure
They're easy enough to find
Do what you want, you always talk a lot
But I can't waste the time

I'm taking what I want
I'm taking what I want
Yeah
I'm taking what I want
