My Prerogative by Bobby Brown is featured in Guilty Pleasures, the seventeenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Jake with the New Directions Boys singing back-up vocals. 

After the Wannabe performance, Jake takes the stage with his song. Prior to this scene though, the New Directions Girls (except Sugar) lecture Jake on how much Chris Brown is a bad influence and they heard about him deciding to sing his song as part of the assignment. Everyone begins to boo him as he gets up, including Marley, who is the most displeased as his girlfriend. But it seems Jake picks another song, sung by Bobby Brown instead. Shocking the New Directions, he sings My Prerogative, adding some smooth iconic dance moves, some by the original artist who sang the song. The lyrics seem to be directed at New Directions who didn't allow him to sing Chris Brown but Jake just liked his songs not the artist. Continuing to dance, he begins to impress the Glee Club, other than Marley as he bends down on a knee and sings to her. Marley claps with everyone else at the end, but doesn't look too pleased.

It is later revealed in the episode that everyone was sort of displeased because at the end of the performance, Artie exclaims that Bobby Brown allegedly got Whitney Houston on crack. 

Lyrics

Jake (New Directions Boys):
Yeah! (Get up)
Hey yeah (Get up)
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah (Get up)
Hey, yeah (Get up)
Oh, get busy

Jake with New Directions Boys (Jake):
Everybody's talking all this stuff about me (Now, now)

New Directions Boys (Jake):
Why don't they just let me live (Oh)
I don't need permission

Jake with New Directions Boys (Jake):
Make my own decisions (Oh!)
That's my prerogative

Jake:
They say I'm crazy
I really don't care
That's my prerogative
They say I'm nasty
But I don't give a damn
Getting girls is how I live
Some ask me questions
Why am I so real
But they don't understand me
I really don't know the deal
About a brother
Trying hard to make it right
Not long ago
Before I win this fight

Jake with New Directions Boys:
Sing!

Jake with New Directions Boys (Jake):
Everybody's talking all this stuff about me
Why don't they just let me live (Tell me why)
I don't need permission
Make my own decisions (Oh!)

New Directions Boys (Jake):
That's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)
It's my prerogative (It's the way that I wanna live)
It's my prerogative (I can do just what I feel)
It's my prerogative (No one can tell me what to do)
It's my prerogative (Cause what I'm doing)

Jake:
I'm doing for you now
Don't get me wrong
I'm really not zooped
Ego trips is not my thing
All these strange relationships
Really gets me down
I see nothing wrong
With spreading myself around

Jake with New Directions Boys:
Sing!

New Directions Boys (Jake):
Everybody's talking all this stuff about me (Yeah, yeah)
Why don't they just let me live (Tell me why)
I don't need permission (I don't need)
Make my own decisions (My own decisions)
That's my prerogative (It's my prerogative)
It's my prerogative (I can do what I wanna do)
It's my prerogative (Can live my life)
It's my prerogative (I'm doing it just for you)
It's my prerogative (Tell me, tell me)

Jake (New Directions Boys):
Why can't I live my life (Live my life)

Jake:
Without all of the things that people say
Oh, oh, oh yeah
Yeah!
Yo tell it, kick it like this
Oh no, no
I can do what I wanna do
Me and you
Together, together, together, together, together

New Directions Boys (Jake):
Everybody's talking all this stuff about me (Everybody's talking now)
Why (Now!) don't they just let me live (Why don't they just let me live, girl)
I don't need permission
Make my own decisions (Don't need permission from nobody)
That's my prerogative (Oh, oh, oh yeah)
Everybody's talkin all this stuff about me (Everybody's talking now)
Why don't they just let me live (Now!)
I don't need permission (I don't need)
Make my own decisions (My own decisions)
That's my prerogative (Oh)

Jake with New Directions Boys:
It's my prerogative

Errors

  • At the two doors of the choir room you can see a cheerio at each door watching the performance but at the end of the performance the cheerio at the left door is at the right with the other within five seconds even though it takes at least nine.
