I Don't Want to Be Anybody's Pet

lyrics

I won't put you up on a pedestal, as I might have in my youth
I don't want to be at your beck and call, to tell you the truth
Does anyone get through to you?

I don't want to be anybody's pet
I don't want to be kicked around again
I don't want to be yours,
always down on all fours

I won't sit up or roll over for treats. I won't be trampled or used
I won't kneel down and worship at your feet; Am I the first to refuse?
Does anyone get through to you?

I don't want to be anybody's pet
I don't want to be kicked around again
I don't want to be yours
exploited then ignored

I won't sing under your window in the rain, I just don't see the use
I think I'll call it a night if it's all the same, I get so tired of you
Does anyone get through?
Does anyone get through?
