I Won't Tone It Down
Rewrite of the Tom Petty song, I won't Back Down
 
Hell no! I won't tone it down!
Oh hell no! I won't tone it down!
You can yell that a poet like me ought to go to Hell
But I won't tone it down
Gonna stand my artistic ground, won't be pushed around
No matter how hard you all try to be draggin' me down
Gonna stand my artistic ground and keep singing
Hell no! I won't tone it down!
 
Hey dummy, don't wanna be
Won't be like you
Won't take the easy way out
Live my life and career as a lie
So go ahead and try
I'll still stand my artistic ground
And sing to you
Hell no! I won't back down!
 
Well, I'll write whatever I wanna write
'Cos it's my pen in my hand
It's my life
In your stuck-up world workin' so hard to keep a good poet down
This woman will stand her artistic ground and sing
Hell no! I won't tone it down! 
 
Hey dummy, don't wanna be
Won't be like you
Won't take the easy way out
Live my life and career as a lie
So go ahead and try
I'll still stand my artistic ground
And sing to you
Hell no! I won't back down!
 
Hey dummy, don't wanna be
Won't be like you
Won't take the easy way out
Live my life and career as a lie
So go ahead and try
I'll still stand my artistic ground
And sing to you
Hell no! I won't back down!
 
Hey dummy, don't wanna be
Won't be like you
Won't take the easy way out
Live my life and career as a lie
So go ahead and try
I'll still stand my artistic ground
And sing to you
Hell no! I won't back down!

Never, never, NEVER, Tone it down. Ramona, you are one of the bright sparks on this site. Pretty much everything you write grates on someone for some reason...To me, that's a gift you should be proud of!!!!!

Great re-write by the way.
