You Don't Own Me by Lesley Gore--to+ infinitive verb patterns

(TESOL Worksheets--Word Patterns)

Google: docs, pub

In my class, I used this to supplement the Life Pre-Intermediate Textbook Lesson 6A Changing Your Life p.70-71
This worksheet was also partially inspired by Rules, Patterns and Words by Dave Willis, and I had previously posted it in my review of that book.

You Don’t Own Me by Lesley Gore (1964)
Listen to the song and write in the missing phrases.  


You don't own me
I'm not just one of your many toys
You don't own me
Don't say I can't go with other boys
And don't tell me what ________________
Don't tell me what ________________
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display
'cause
You don't own me
Don't try ________________ me in any way
You don't own me
Don't tie me down 'cause I'd never stay
I don't tell you what ________________
I don't tell you what ________________
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you
I'm young and I love ________________ young
I'm free and I love ________________ free ________________ my life the way I want, ________________ and do whatever I please
And don't tell me what ________________
Oh, don't tell me what ________________
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display
I don't tell you what ________________
Oh, I don't tell you what ________________
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you
I'm young and I love ________________ young
I'm free and I love ________________ free ________________
