"Think"

by Aretha Franklin

(In 4/4 time. 4 bar Intro)

 

chorus

You'd better Think!

                      Think!

Think about what you're

Trying to do to me

 

You'd better Think!

                      Think! Think!

Let your mind go

Let yourself be free

verse 1

Let's go back

Let's go way back

Let's go way back to way on when

I didn't even know you

Couldn't have been

Much more than ten               

 

I ain't no psy-chi-a-trist

Ain't no doctor with degrees       

But it don't take too much IQ              Too see what you're doing to me

chorus

You'd better Think!

                      Think!

Think about what you're

Trying to do to me

 

You'd better Think!

                      Think! Think!

Let your mind go

Let yourself be free

bridge

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

FREEDOM!

verse 2

There ain't nothing you could ask   

I could answer you, but I won't

I was gonna change you if

You keep doing things I don't

People walking everyday

Playing games and keeping' scores

Tryin' to make me lose my mind

Be careful you don't lose yours!

chorus

You'd better Think!

                      Think!

Think about what you're

Trying to do to me

Let your mind go

Let yourself be free
