She Does What She Wants - Lyrics
Words and music by Angie Nussey

Some people ask if I have babies on the mind.
At 40 I shouldn’t be taking my time.
They tell me how they had their first at 22
and there’s no more important job I’ll ever do.

And I thank them in kind for their good advice.
Promise to talk to my partner tonight.
Walk away feeling like a debutant.
In the end, I’m gonna do what I want.

She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants

You can call me selfish you can call me naïve.
You can tell me all the reasons I’ll never succeed.
Up until now, I just chose to believe
everybody had the answers except for me.
And so I choose not to argue or taunt.
I just smile and nod and then do what I want.

She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants

Sure it doesn’t always work to my advantage.
Some bosses like to micromanage.
But as soon as they leave, I just get the job done.
Doing it…they way that I want.

She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants

Some say I shouldn’t write my silly hip-hop rap.
They say “come on Ang, you’re better than that”.
And shouldn’t you be thinking
how you’re gonna retire?
Buck and admit your career has expired.

And I thank them in kind for their advice on art.
Hold my tongue to make ‘em look smart.
Completely agree I have no money to flaunt.
Then I head to the mic and do what I want.

She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants

As I get older I’ve come to depend
on everybody’s advice being great for them.
But I’m one of a kind. Personalized.
I’ve got my own set of values, truths, and lies.

And I can listen as long and as hard as I can
to someone else’s version of my master plan.
I’ll smile and nod from here to Vermont.
But trust me on this: I’m gonna do what I want.

She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
She does what she wants
