Lyrics

Quinn:
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 enjoyed this as much as I do
Are you ready?
I am
'Cause it's all about control
And I've got lots of it

Blaine:
When I was seventeen, I did what people told me, uh
I did what my father said, and let my mother mold me
But that was a long ago
I'm in

Quinn with New Directions:
Control (Artie: Never gonna stop)
Control (Blaine: To get what I want)
Control (Artie: I've got to have a lot)
Control (Blaine: And now I'm all grown up)

Artie:
First time I fell in love
I didn't know what hit me

Artie with New Directions:
So young and so naive
I thought it would be easy

Artie:
But now I know I've got to take

Quinn with New Directions:
Control (Blaine: Now I've got a lot, ow)

Artie and Blaine with New Directions:
Jam, wooh wooh

Artie:
Rebel, that's right
I'm on my own, I'll call my own shots
Thank you

Blaine:
Got my own mind
I wanna make my own (with Artie and New Directions: decisions)
When it has to do with (with New Directions: my life, my life)

Artie:
I wanna be the one in control
So let me take you by the hand
And lead you on this dance, ah

Blaine:
'Cause what I got is because I took a chance

Artie with New Directions:
I don't wanna rule the world
Just wanna run my life

New Directions:
Ooh

Blaine:
So make your life a little easier
When you get the chance just take

Blaine with New Directions:
Control, ooh ooh (Artie: Now I've got a lot)
(with Artie: Ooh)

Quinn with New Directions:
Control (Blaine: To get what I want, ow)
Control (Artie: I'm never gonna stop)
Control

Artie and Blaine:
Now I'm all grown up, wooh (New Directions: Uh)

Artie and Blaine with New Directions:
Free-ee at last

Blaine:
Out here on my own

Artie:
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah

Artie and Blaine with New Directons:
Hee

Artie and Blaine:
Now control this

Blaine:
Uh

Artie:
'Cause I've got my own mind

Artie and Blaine with New Directions:
Gonna make my own decisions
