Keep To Yourself
written by: Reed Ferguson

Oh, there’s some things you should keep to yourselves
Oh, there’s some things you should keep to yourselves

You’re bending over backwards to keep your head held high
You’re bending over backwards to keep your man in line
‘Cause ain’t nobody told you you’re as free as any man
Ain’t nobody told you get out as fast you can

And this man thinks he’s smarter than you
And this one thinks he can take more than you
Say only girls cry, they’re just selling themselves
And some say there are some things you should keep to yourself

Oh, there’s some things you should keep to yourselves
Oh, there’s some things you should keep to yourselves

He’s tortured and he’s scarred you for as long as you have lived
‘Cause ain’t nobody told you marriage ain’t all that there is
You live in fear of solitude, say you fight like a girl
‘Cause girls are weak and men are strong, you won’t survive on your own

And this man thinks he’s smarter than you
And this one thinks he can take more than you
Say only girls cry, they’re just selling themselves
And some say there are some things you should keep to yourself

These movies and magazines turn you into a thing
Give you no identity, an object for a “he”
You’re plain without a painted face, they say you’re looking rough
But if you’ve got on too much, they say you’re not good enough

And this man thinks he’s smarter than you
And this one thinks he can take more than you
Say only girls cry, they’re just selling themselves
And some say there are some things you should keep to yourself

And this girl thinks she’s not skinny enough
‘Cause the magazines said it’s not tight enough
But the men all say these women are killing our men
“Oh, there’s some things, honey, you should keep to yourself”

And this man, he’s just laughing at you
And he’ll keep thinking he’s better than you
As long as you let him look at pictures of you
Don’t whine and complain, girl
If you want it to change
Change it yourself, girl, and remember, remember
There’s one thing you should never keep yourself
Don’t you ever ever keep your mind to yourself
