Animals - It's My Life
ANIMALS - IT'S MY LIFE
(R. Atkins; C. d'Errico)
Columbia DB 7741

Itís a hard world to get a break in
All the good things have been taken
But girl there are ways to make certain things pay
Though Iím dressed in these rags, Iíll wear sable some day

Hear what I say
Iím gonna ride the serpent
No more time spent sweatiní rent
Hear my command
Iím breakiní loose, it ainít no use
Holdiní me down, stick around

But baby (baby)
Remember (remember)
Itís my life and Iíll do what I want
Itís my mind and Iíll think what I want
Show me Iím wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day Iíll treat you real fine

Thereíll be women and their fortunes
Who just wonít do
Are you gonna cry, when Iím squeeziní the rye
Takiní all I can get, no regrets
When I, openly lie
And leave only money
Believe me honey, that money
Can you believe, I ainít no saint
No complaints
So girl go out
Hand it out

And baby (baby)
Remember (remember)
Itís my life and Iíll do what I want
Itís my mind and Iíll think what I want
Show me Iím wrong, hurt me sometime
But some day Iíll treat you real fine

(Itís my life and Iíll do what I want) Donít push me
(Itís my mind and Iíll think what I want) Itís my life
(Itís my life and Iíll do what I want) And I can do what I want
(Itís my mind and Iíll think what I want) You canít tell me
(Itís my life and Iíll do what I want)
