Mind Your P's and Q's

Get on your knees
Bite your tongue
Remember to say please
Because I'm holding a gun

You should know by now
I make the rules
Don't question how
Arguing is for fools

Watch me move
Just sit back down
I've nothing to prove
I run this town

You can try to fight
But I've locked you up
You won't see the light
When you act like a pup

Mind your p's and q's
Don't make a sound
You won't end up on the news
Your body won't be found
