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
