Lyrics: 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) Freedom (freedom) Oh freedom Yeah freedom, right now Gotta have freedom Freedom (freedom) Oh oh freedom (freedom) Gotta have freedom Oh oh 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) But 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 Oh oh-oh-oh think (What you're tryna to do to me) (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?)

In her incredible six-decade career, Aretha evolved from teenage gospel star to reigning pop and R&B diva, recording classics like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “Chain Of Fools”, “Think” (lyrics by Aretha Franklin), definitive versions of the songs “Respect” and “I Say a Little Prayer”, and global hits like “Freeway Of Love,” “I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)”, and “A Rose Is Still A Rose.” Altogether, 112 of her singles reached the charts, with 20 No. 1 R&B singles, the most ever by a female artist. She won 18 Grammy Awards (including the first eight trophies for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance) and, out of recognition for her for indelible contribution to American music and culture, received both the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and a Pulitzer Prize.
