everybody's got something to say about Donna
pull her to pieces like she was some part in a play
stupid remarks that question her values and honour
no-one's happy with Donna living life her own way
they say she’s running around with her head
in the clouds too many dreams for her age
skipping from one to the next just like turning a page
everyone seems to want to bury those dreams
till all imagination is gone
Donna don’t care what they say, she dreams on

everybody's got stories to tell about Donna
twist them around to make everything
seem dirty and cheap
everyday there’s a little more dirt to rub on her
Donna must be the only one not losing sleep
rumours spread like fire in the wind
each story the taller the flames
quick to offer their judgements,
but never their names
jealousies burn, disguised as concern
jumping on every mistake
Donna don’t care what they say, she won’t break

most people feel a little uneasy round Donna
nothing much frightens her
and that makes some people scared
they see the chances they missed
and take it out on her
chances that no-one else took,
cause no-one else dared
one drop of rain can threaten your world
when your castles are made out of sand
so we have to crush anything we don’t understand
try to control both body and soul
held where we think they belong
Donna don’t care what they say, she’s too strong
Donna don’t care what they say, she dreams on
