Lyrics:

So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again
You'd better watch you steps now, woman, cause I ain't like those other men
There's something burning inside me that makes me want to be free
And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me

There's things in life now, baby, that I know I've got to do
And I need your love now, baby, to help me see it through
So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again
You'd better watch your steps now, woman, cause I ain't like those other men

So you think you can own me, well you'd better just think again
You'd better watch your steps now , woman, cause I ain't like those other men
There's something burning inside me that makes me want to be free
And when I get these feelings honey, you better keep away from me

BURNING AMBITION is one of my favourite Iron Maiden-songs.
It doesn't really sound like the typical maiden-sound.
It's only 2.41 minutes long and it hasn't got got a chorus
and that's very unusual for IRON MAIDEN-songs.
