Express Yourself - Madonna

Express Yourself

Like a Prayer
pop 80s dance Madonna female vocalists


"Express Yourself", written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray, was released as a single on May 9, 1989. The song is one of female empowerment, urging women never to "go for second-best" and to put their love "to the test". Madonna explained (as quoted in the book, Madonna 'talking': Madonna in Her Own Words: "The ultimate thing behind the song is that if you don't express yourself, if you don't say what you want, then you're not going to get it. And in effect you are chained down by your inability to say what you feel or go after what you want." (Source Express Yourself Songfacts).

Express Yourself - Madonna

[Spoken:]
Come on girls
Do you believe in love?
Cause I got something to say about it
And it goes something like this

[Chorus:]

Don t go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you ve got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you ll know your love is real

You don t need diamond rings
Or eighteen karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast
You know they never last, no, no
What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can t come down
(You ll never come down)

[chorus]

Long stem roses are the way to your heart
But he needs to start with your head
Satin sheets are very romantic
What happens when you re not in bed
You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn t right then move on
Second best is never enough
You ll do much better baby on your own
(Baby on your own)

[chorus]

Express yourself
(You ve got to make him)
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey
So if you want it right now, make him show you how
Express what he s got, oh baby ready or not

[Intermediate:]

And when you re gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on, but he just won t get it
He ll be back on his knees

To express himself
(You ve got to make him)
Express himself
Hey hey

What you need is a big strong hand
To lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can t come down
(You ll never come down)

[intermediate]

So please

[chorus]

Express yourself
(You ve got to make him)
Express himself
Hey, hey, hey, hey
So if you want it right now, make him show you how
Express what he s got, oh baby ready or not
Express yourself
(You ve got to make him)
So you can respect yourself
Hey, hey
So if you want it right now, then make him show you how
Express what he s got, oh baby ready or not
