Don't have to cut my hair.
No one can tell me what to think,
How to speak, or what to wear.
I have freedom FROM religion,
And regardless what you say,

And I sure DON'T HAVE TO PRAY.
I can wear
earrings if I want,
And pierce my tongue & nose.
I can read &
watch just what I like,
Be tattooed from head to toes.
AND if you
ever spank me,
I'll charge you with the crime,
I'll back up all my

If I bought you K-Mart shoes,
Instead of Nike Airs.
And... I've canceled that appointment
To take your driver's test.
C.S.D. is unconcerned,
So I'll decide what's best.
I SAID: No time
to stop and eat,
Or pick up stuff to munch,
And tomorrow you can start
To make your own sack lunch.
Just save that raging
And wait 'til dinner time.
We're having liver and onions.
It's a favorite dish of mine.

So I can watch the VCR?
