Madonna: Human Nature



Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself

And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
It's human nature
(It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(It's human nature)

You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through my eyes
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)

Did I say something wrong?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I must've been crazy)
Did I stay too long?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind
(What was I thinking)

And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
It's human nature
(It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(It's human nature)

You punished me for telling you my fantasies
I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't make
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)

Did I say something true?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I must've been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)

And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
It's human nature
(It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(It's human nature)

Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself

Did I say something true?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I must've been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops, I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)

And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
It's human nature
(It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry
(I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(It's human nature)

And I'm not sorry
(I'm not apologizing)
It's human nature
(Would it sound better if I were a man?)
And I'm not sorry
(You're the one with the problem)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(Why don't you just deal with it)

And I'm not sorry
(Would you like me better if I was?)
It's human nature
(We all feel the same way)
And I'm not sorry
(I have no regrets)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(Just look in the mirror)

And I'm not sorry
(I don't have to justify anything)
It's human nature
(I'm just like you)
And I'm not sorry
(Why should I be?)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me
(Deal with it)

Wikipedia: Human Nature (Madonna song)
"Human Nature" is a song by American singer-songwriter Madonna from her sixth studio album Bedtime Stories (1994). The album was released with the intention to tone down the image of Madonna, who was being heavily criticized at the time. The song was written and produced by Madonna and Dave Hall, and released on June 6, 1995 by Maverick Records.
...
A bondage-inspired music video was released for the song, directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, which features Madonna and her dancers dressed in PVC leather dancing highly choreographed routines. Unlike such previous music videos for "Justify My Love" and "Erotica", however, the video was meant to be more humorous than sexy. It was a satirical depiction of sex, meant to ridicule the taboos our society places on the subject. Madonna has performed "Human Nature" three times on tour; in her 2001 Drowned World Tour, Sticky & Sweet Tour in 2008-09 and during her 2012 MDNA Tour.
