Poem of the Week 103

Think

Aretha Franklin

You better think (think)
Think about what you’re trying to do to me
Think (think, think)
Let your mind go, let yourself be free

Let’s go back, let’s go back
Let’s go way on way back when
I didn’t even know you
You couldn’t have been too much more than ten (just a child)
I ain’t no psychiatrist, I ain’t no doctor with degrees
But it don’t take too much high IQ to see what you’re doing to me

You better think (think)
Think about what you’re trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think)
Let your mind go, let yourself be free

‘Cause freedom (freedom) stands for freedom (freedom)
Oh, freedom, yeah, freedom, (freedom) right now
Freedom, (freedom) oh, freedom (freedom)
Give me some freedom, oh, freedom, (freedom) right now

Yeah, think about it!
You, think about it!

There ain’t nothing you could ask
I could answer you but I won’t (I won’t)
I was gonna change, but I’m not
If you keep doing things I don’t

You better think (think)
Think about what you’re trying to do to me
(What you’re tryna to do to me)
Oh, think (think)
Let your mind go, let yourself be free

People walking around everyday
Playing games and taking scores
Trying to make other people lose their minds
Well, be careful, you’re goin’ to lose yours

Oh, think (think)
Think about what you’re trying to do to me
Wooh! Think (think)
Let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me)
And I need you (don’t you know it?)
Without each other
There ain’t nothing neither can do

Oh yeah, think aboutta me (what you’re tryna do to me)
Oh baby, think about it right now
Yeah, right now
(Think about it, for me) Oh
(Think about it, for me) Yeah right now
(Think about it, for me)
(Think about it, for me) Please baby, baby, baby
(Think about it, for me) What I’m tryna say
(Think about it, for me)
(Think about it, for me)
