Song Description

Paul Robert Thomas's lyrics which I set to music & produced, attempting to reflect the feeling of self-assertion of the singer.

Story Behind the Song

Paul sent me some lyrics and I decided to work on this one first. He gave me free rein to do what I liked and I suggested a dance beat...

Lyrics

Verse 1.

Slipping and sliding like a bear on thin ice,
I know I can make it without your advice.

Verse 2.

Crashing and falling is a cross we all bear,
For me it's as natural, just like breathing air.

Refrain 1.

Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me what for.
Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me no more.

Bridge 1.

I'm a big boy now, Believe me I know
How to live my life contentedly.
You talk as much as I will allow,
Babe, I really don't wanna row,
But you're strangling the life outta me, me.

Refrain 2.

Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me what for.
Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me no more.

Verse 1 reprise.

Slipping and sliding like a bear on thin ice,
I know I can make it without your advice.



Refrain 3.

Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me what for.
Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me no more.

Bridge 2.

No I won't be beat, I can stand the heat,
My skin's as thick as a crocodile's.
You can forget all about defeat -
I can stand on my own two feet,
And I'll go on for one million miles, yeah.

Refrain 4.

Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me what for.
Don't you tell me, Don't you tell me no more.

Outro.

Don't you tell me,

Don't you tell me,

Don't you tell me,

Don't you tell me.
