Janet Jackson Control Lyrics

Last updated: 05/25/2011 11:00:00 AM

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

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do

Are we ready? I am? Cause it's all about control

And I've got lots of it

When I was 17, I did what people told me

Did what my father said, and let my mother mold me

But that was long ago


I'm in control, never gonna stop

Control, to get what I want

Control, I got to have a lot

Control, now I'm all grown up

First time I fell in love

I didn't know what hit me

So young and so naive

I thought it would be easy

But now I know I've got to take...

Repeat Chorus

That's right, I'm on my own,

I'll call my own shots, thank you


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

So let me take you by the hand

And lead you on this dance

Cause what I've got is because I took a chance

I don't wanna rule the world

Just wanna run my life

So make your life a little easier

When you get the chance just take...

Repeat Chorus

Free at last, out here on my own

Now control this

That's right, career moves

I do what's right for me

And me wants to groove

Is that ok?

Repeat Bridge

Hop to it

I'm in control (and I love it, that's right)

Control, now I've got a lot

Control, now I'm all grown up

I'm in control, I'm in control

Don't make me lose it

Taking "Control" of Your Identity | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/10

This song by the beautiful Janet Jackson came to mind as I did a lesson with my 8th graders about Owning up to Ones Identity. In being who you are one must learn when to step up and when to listen. This song has the power to influence those actions.

I still think Michael is much better than she is, but you have to admit, she is pretty good. She had an older sibling that was a superstar and it was hard for her to come out and be one herself. But she did it and she is one of the few siblings of stars who have done that. So that makes her very good.
