For Once (The Lacs)

If I wasted my whole life like I done this far Would it make you happy to know I did it your way, well I don’t think so And I don’t know who appointed you The one to tell me my point of view And I can’t bare the lies you tell Sorry but I wasn’t raised that well So I’ll wipe the blood off my knuckles Comb my hair and fix my clothes Clean myself up and settle the score And keep coming back for more-or-or-ore Ain’t nobody gonna tell me what the hell to do For once, I’m gonna do it my way I’ve listened to ‘em way too long So if I fail it’ll be my wrong-ong-ong-ong Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how the hell to live For once I gotta do it my way And if you don’t wanna believe Then y’all just wait and see-oh-oh-oh If I had money and a model wife and a brand new car Would it make you happy to know I did it your way, well I don’t think so I can’t please everybody all the time And y’all done cluttered up my mind I aim my truth right at your lies And I will not apologize So wipe that look up off of your face Close your mouth and give me my space Cuz I don’t want what you’re looking for And I deserve a little more-or-or-ore Ain’t nobody gonna tell me what the hell to do For once, I’m gonna do it my way I’ve listened to ‘em way too long So if I fail it’ll be my wrong-ong-ong-ong Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how the hell to live For once I gotta do it my way And if you don’t wanna believe Then y’all just wait and see-oh-oh-oh And as the days go by and the nights get longer And the haters keep a hating and the feelings getting stronger Tellin’ me what I could have been, spoken like a hypocrite Tell me what I should be now, like I really give a shit My life, my ways, my job, my habits is all intent to teach about You read my dreams, it seem you need to practice what you preach about I listened to y’all, damn ‘em all, and I was wrong a bunch But I gotta do it, screw it, I’m doing it my way for once See for once I’m gonna do it my way For way too long, it’ll be my wrong How to live now I guess you don’t wanna believe Then y’all just wait and see Ain’t nobody gonna tell me what the hell to do For once, I’m gonna do it my way I’ve listened to ‘em way too long So if I fail it’ll be my wrong-ong-ong-ong Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how the hell to live For once I gotta do it my way And if you don’t wanna believe Then y’all just wait and see-oh-oh-oh Ain’t nobody gonna tell me what the hell to do For once, I’m gonna do it my way I’ve listened to ‘em way too long So if I fail it’ll be my wrong-ong-ong-ong Ain’t nobody gonna tell me how the hell to live For once I gotta do it my way And if you don’t wanna believe
