Please Don't Tell Me (what to do)

Please Don't Tell Me

Please don't tell me what to do,
And don't tell me what to say,
Before we met I got along fine,
Without your help every day.
So let's just be lovers and
Enjoy each other every day
Yes, let's just be lovers and
Do things our own way.



Please don't tell me how to drive
Or which is the quickest way,
I've lived here since I was sixteen
And I can always find my way.
So let's just be lovers and
Enjoy each other every day
Yes, let's just be lovers and
Do things our own way.

Please don't tell me when to speak up
Or when to hold my piece.
I've been talkin' my whole life
And I know when to speak.
So let's just be lovers and
Enjoy each other every day
Yes, let's just be lovers and
Do things our own way.



When I get goin' please don't tell me
You've heard that story before,
Some folks might not have heard it
And it's OK to tell it once more.
So let's just be lovers and
Enjoy each other every day
Yes, let's just be lovers and
Do things our own way.



So let's just be lovers and
Enjoy each other every day
Yes, let's just be lovers and
Do things our own way.

A man asking his significant other not to tell him what to do.
Long Song Description:
A man asking his significant other to refrain from a number of annoying activities.
Story Behind the Song:
Many men find that their wives or girlfriends take it upon themselves to give them unsolicited directions when they are driving. Men rarely do this, for some reason. This song pretty much wrote itself when I started on it.
