​Do Anything You Wanna Do

This song is by Manfred Mann's Earth Band and appears on the album Criminal Tango (1986).

I'm gonna break out of the city
Leave the people here behind
Searching for adventure
It's the kind of life to find
Tired of doing day jobs
With no thanks for what I do
I know I must be someone
Now I'm gonna find out who

Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
Why don't you tell them what you're gonna do?
Do anything you wanna do
Do anything you wanna do

I don't need no politicians
To tell me things I shouldn't be
Neither no opticians
To tell me what I oughta see
No-one tells you nothing
Even when you know they know
They tell you what you should be
They don't like to see you grow

Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
Why don't you tell them what you're gonna do?
Do anything you wanna do
Do anything you wanna do

Why don't you ask them what they expect from you?
Why don't you tell them what you're gonna do?
You get so lonely, maybe it's better that way
It's not you only, 'cause you got something to say
