About Go Where You Wanna Go

"Go Where You Wanna Go" is a 1965 song written by John Phillips. It was originally recorded by The Mamas & the Papas on their LP If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears and given limited release as a single. However, the record was withdrawn, and its A-side was reassigned to "California Dreamin'." "Go Where You Wanna Go" was later made into a hit by The 5th Dimension. P. F. Sloan played guitar on the song. John Phillips said that he wrote it about Michelle Phillips' affair with Russ Titelman, a songwriter and record producer.

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You don't understand 
That a girl like me can love just one man 
Three thousand miles, that's how far you'll go 
And you said to me "Please don't follow" 

'cause you gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You don't understand 
That a girl like me can love just one man 
You've been gone a week, and I tried so hard 
Not to be the cryin' kind 
Not to be the girl you left behind 

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with 

You gotta go where you want to go 
Do what you want to do 
With whoever you want to do it with
