Track Name: How To Start A Revolution
I made myself an institution
From all the books I read
How to start a revolution
From the bottom of a garden shed

See I've been thinking I could play your game
I'll maybe colour my hair
I've been thinking I should change my name
I'll be your puppet, I sing because I love it

Before we propel toward this rush
For me to seal and sign
I think I should tell you
I reserve the right to change my mind

See I've been thinking about the rules again
And I do not think it's fair
So tie me down and take my name
I'll rise above it, I sing because I love it

If I could be Fidel Castro
I would thank my lucky star
I'd have a mojito and light my Cohiba cigar.

I'd be thinking 'bout the USA
Maybe Guantanamo Bay
Hey now FBI and CIA
Get the president on speed dial
Here's my Cuban missile.

Tie me down but I won't give in
Tie me down but I won't give in
