"Put your foot down" in lyrics

I used to be alive, I’m so pathetic but now I get it, what’s done is done
I know you, just leave it alone and don’t regret it
But sometimes some things turn into dumb things
And that’s when you put your foot down.

Why did I have to meet somebody like you?

Limp Bizkit - Boiler

take a look around
Please Mr. President,

put your foot down

No No No

Fitz and the Tantrums - Dear Mr. President

Once inside, you don't get enough like a cliffhanger
Today I chop up my page, as if I were pale water
This Deichkind, this is the reason
So what boy, what girl, put your foot down
It's too phat, you think, swing what you have to the bass

Deichkind - Bon Voyage

You intend doing so much
Do anything and look ahead
Put your foot down, nothing is lost yet
Seize the day and don't wait for tomorrow

Rapsoul - King of the world

I'd do anything for your sake
because I tremble at the very thought of losing you...

You always put your foot down whenever there's something you want.
You never give me the option to say no.
I remember having refused some favour to you about a year ago

Petros Imvrios - You Devilish

You can't even tell them, they unable to handle the truth
They full of shit, you gotta spend a day scrambling through
Telling me you sorry, I'm like uh uh, that isn't new
That's when you gotta turn your back and put your foot down
If you put up with it, you gonna get put out, nigga don't you wuss out
See I've been boxing with this issue for some good rounds

Hopsin - No Fucks Given

In the wine cellar from seven to nine
King Hans
Daddy, you can get wrecked in this dance
Be careful where you put your foot down
It's good for the things you've got in your head

Folkeklubben - Movie of Denmark
