Lyrics for You Don't Own Me by Pale Waves:

Verse 1
A pretty face like yours
Should really learn to smile more
And no one night stands for you
Or they’ll think that you’re a whore
You better cross your legs
Cause that’s not very lady like
Don’t wanna hear your thoughts
Don’t even start to speak your mind

Chorus
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
And I’ll do whatever I want to
Cause I’m a psycho
But that’s fine though
So you better get out of my way
I’ll be your biggest mistake
If you keep acting that way
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
Cause I’ll be whoever I want to
And what makes you think
You get your say?
So you better get out of my way
I’ll be your biggest mistake
If you keep acting that way

Verse 2
Don’t cut your hair too short
Cause it looks better long and straight
Don’t make the first move, no
Cause dignity will always wait
Just learn to bite your tongue
Were you not taught when you were young?
Don’t show too much skin
Don’t even start to speak your mind

Chorus
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
And I’ll do whatever I want to
Cause I’m a psycho
But that’s fine though
So you better get out of my way
I’ll be your biggest mistake
If you keep acting that way
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
Cause I’ll be whoever I want to
And what makes you think
You get your say?
So you better get out of my way
I’ll be your biggest mistake
If you keep acting that way

Bridge
I’d rather pull out my teeth
Than be what you want me to be
I know it’s hard to believe
You don’t own me

Chorus
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
You don’t own me
And I’ll do whatever I want to
Cause I’m a psycho
But that’s fine though
So you better get out of my way
I’ll be your biggest mistake
If you keep acting that way

Outro
I’d rather pull out my teeth
(I don’t need you, I don’t need you cause I’ll be whoever I want to)
Than be what you want me to be
(And what makes you think you get your say? So you better get out of my way)
I know it’s hard to believe
(I’ll be your biggest mistake if you keep acting that way)
You don’t own me

Song Facts

The lyrics ‘A pretty face like yours should really learn to smile more
No one night stands for you or they’ll think you’re a whore’ were mentioned in an interview done with NME and the song was described as being ‘a three-minute thrasher on which the band exorcise their run of bad luck and the frustrations of lives previously repressed’.
Heather’s girlfriend, Kelsi Luck, originally wrote the second verse of this as a poem and then Heather wrote it into the song.
