“Control” by Janet Jackson

“Got my own mind. I wanna make my own decisions. When it has to do with my life, my life, I wanna be the one in control.”

This is a story about control
My control
Control of what I say
Control of what I do
And this time I’m gonna do it my way (my way)
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do
Are we ready?

‘Cause it’s all about control (control)
And I’ve got lots of it)

So let me take you by the hand, and lead you in this dance
