I don’t need anyone to make me smile
When I have a TV and a bed,
I don’t need anyone to hear my problems
When they will take my credit.
I don’t need anyone to scratch my back
When I’ve got a tree to rub against,
I don’t need anyone to keep me going
When I can jump my own fence.
I don’t need anyone to show me the way
When I can use my feet to find the right path
I don’t need anyone to say well done
When I’ve got my eyes with which to see.
I just don’t need anyone
So just let me be!
