you’re not the boss of me

i ain’t your whipping boy i ain’t no fool
not going to do what you tell me to do
i guess you could say it’s come down to this

when you say jump i’m suppose to ask
those days are over now they’re in the past
i’ll put it into words i quit

i’ve been waiting for this day
and now i’m finally free
you’re not the boss of me

not going to do something that i’d regret
so i took some money out of each paycheck
waiting for the day i’d strike out on my own

there’s lots of work that needs to be done
but you’re not my boss no more so it’ll be fun
start a little office and work out of my home

i’ve been waiting for this day
and now i’m finally free
you’re not the boss of me

i know you’ll talk of me after i’m gone
you’ll tell everyone i’ve done you wrong
but you got the best of me every day i was here

you don’t give credit where credit is due
my best ideas you said came from you
you’re probably scared right now
‘cause you know you’re screwed

i’ve been waiting for this day
and now i’m finally free
you’re not the boss of me

i’ve been working for this day
and now i’m finally free
you’re not the c.e.o. of me
