lyrics

girl
you’d better keep your mouth shut
hold your tongue
don’t say something we’ll make you regret

girl
you’d better keep the door shut
keep the door shut
the devil’s out prowling, i’ll bet

girl
you’d better keep your mind shut
this book hasn't failed us yet

girl
you know about keeping those legs shut, right?
no, don’t make me get into it

girl
you’d better keep your mouth shut
hold your tongue
just listen to what we have to say

girl
you’d better keep the door shut
shut the lights out
get on your knees and pray

girl
you’d better keep your mind shut
stay in here with us where it’s safe

girl
you’d better keep those legs shut
’til we tell you when it is okay
and it’s never okay
’til we say it’s okay
you ought to be ashamed

girl
you’d better keep your mouth shut
keep your door shut
keep your eyes shut

girl
you’d better keep your heart shut
keep your mind shut
keep ‘em shut
and cover it up

girl
you turn those questions off
you’ve said enough
now listen to us
and don’t fuss

girl
you know you’re better off
when you’re not yourself
and that’s what we want

and we get what we want


yeah, that’s what we want



better give us what we want

Soulful and earnest, their music offers celebration and unflinching appraisal in equal measure. They strive for peace, but do not overlook the obstacles.
Steph and Sarah established The Leonas in 2015
