Don't Own Those Woes


Let go of a tightening hold.
Loosen up and remove that load.
Be free and step out bold.
Lift up those bended shoulders.

Let go of a tightening hold.
Loosen up and remove that load.
Be free and step out bold.
Lift up those bended shoulders.

Stop those tears that you drop.
Stop those woes that you moan a lot.
Stop those tears that you drop.
Stop those woes that you moan a lot.

Don't own those tears that you drop.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.
Don't own those tears that you drop.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.

Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.
Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.

Let go of a tightening hold.
Loosen up and remove that load.
Be free and step out bold.
Lift up those bended shoulders.

Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.
Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.

Let go of those woes you've got.
And...
Stop those tears that you drop a lot
Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.
Don't own those woes that you've got.
No.
Don't own those woes you moan a lot.

Let go of a tightening hold.
Loosen up and remove that load.
Be free and step out bold.
Lift up those bended shoulders.
Let go of those woes you've got.
And...
Stop those tears that you drop a lot.

Don't own those woes!
Let them go.
Don't own those woes!
Let them go.
Don't own those woes!
Let them go.
Don't own those woes!
Let them go.

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
