Tie Yourself On Down

(parody of "Tie Your Mother Down" by Queen)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this one is a little rough on the rhymes and rhythms. If it wasn't a vital message that we all need frequent reminders about, I might not have posted it.


Down in Romans 12, it talks about yourself
And how we ought to serve the King.
The apostle Paul said to give it all,
And baby, that means everything.

Now a living sacrifice doesn't feel so very nice.
It wants to run away, but on the altar's where we gotta stay.

Chorus:
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
Turn yourself to God and watch His power come around.
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
Give the Lord your all tonight!

Don't you be conformed, you should be transformed
By full renewing of your mind.
And then you will know about God's will --
Good and perfect, words of that kind.

The world, it has a mold and it's wanting to enfold you,
Make you fit right in - but baby, don't you buy it, it's a sin.

Chorus:
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
Make yourself a sacrifice, and mercy will abound.
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
You can be a friend of God!

Don't you think about yourself too very high,
But only in the faith and judgment that God will supply.

Chorus:
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
You can kick, kick, kick, kick, kick, kick the devil out of town.
Tie yourself on down, tie yourself on down,
Give the Lord your all tonight!
