Tie me down

Tie me down, 

tie me down,

tie me down 

so I won’t speak.


Hold me in this cage of glass,

this cage of glass so I can see.


Tie me up and hold me down,

and put me on display

for all to see.


Tie me up,

seal my mouth,

seal me up so I won’t scream.

Make me the perfect animal

that plays it part in the modern zoo.
