People can take everything away from you
But they can never take away your truth 
But the question is, can you handle mine?

They say I'm crazy 
I really don't care
That's my prerogative 
They say I'm nasty 
But I don't give a damn
 Getting boys is how I live
Some ask me questions 
Why am I so real?
But they don't understand me
I really don't know the deal
 About my sister  Trying hard to make it right 
Not long ago
 Before I won this fight 

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
(Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions 
(Oh)
That's my prerogative 
(That's my prerogative)
It's my prerogative 

It's the way that I wanna live
(It's my prerogative)
But you can't tell me what to do

Don't get me wrong 
I'm really not souped 
Ego trips is not my thing 
All these strange relationships  Really gets me down
I see nothing wrong
Spreadin' myself around

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
(Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions 
(Oh)
That's my prerogative 
(That's my prerogative)

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
(Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions 
(Oh)
That's my prerogative 
(That's my prerogative)

It's the way that I wanna live
(It's my prerogative)
But you can't tell me what to do

Why can't I live my life
 Without all of the things 
That people say?
Oh

(Oh)
Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
(Tell me why)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions 
(Oh)
That's my prerogative 
(They said I'm crazy)

Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live?
(Tell me why)
(They say I'm nasty)
I don't need permission, make my own decisions 
(Oh)
That's my prerogative 
(That's my prerogative)
