"Lions" as written by and Merrill Martin Garbus....
When can you come over, and then when you gotta leave?
'Cause it won't take me forever to be hiding up your sleeve.
Please oh can't you please just stay on over for the night?
And please oh won't you please just plug my ears and hold me tight?
When I scream it's like I'm in the middle of the fight.
Bring me daylight.
When will my heart swim in the blood-bath with other hearts that splash just like mine?

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them
Say you love them oh

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them
So you love them oh

All I had to eat today were three Doritos.
I'm so angry at your goody-two-shoes, punch you in the nose.
We can pretend it's Christmas while we're locked here in this box,
While my brother and all his friends whip out their tiny teenage cocks.
If I scream they'll hear us so let's count along with clocks: tocks,
Tocks, tocks, tocks.
When will my heart swim in the blood-bath with other hearts that pulse just like mine?

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them
Say you love them oh

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them
So you love them oh

When you tell the lions that you love them so
You love them so, you love them so
When you tell the lions that you love them
So you love them so

    Lyric CorrectionLyrics Correction:
    Instead of "Laugh" it is "bath", continued on the word blood, so the end of the phrase is "in the blood-bath"
    Instead of "goody" it is "grody"
    Instead of "pass just like mine" it is "pulse just like mine", and "back" is still "blood-bath"

    General CommentOne question: What does she mean by her little brother and his friends whip out their tiny teenage cocks?

    Shes trapped inside that box because of teenage hormones?
