The Lyrics

There are times when it's best to just shut up.
(Instrumental intro with zippers sounding)

Shut that mouth!

It's not time to pout
Stop smoking crack
If you don't want a smack

When you're talking on and on
You must zip it
Before we've been asleep to long
You must zip it
When you're saying something wrong
You must zip it

Now zip it!
Fully shut!
Close it up!
Don't be a slut!
Stop talking!
Be silent!
Try to detect it!
It's not too late!
To zip it!
Zip it closed!

When your friends all start to frown
You must zip it
They'll never let you live it down
Unless you zip it
You will lose your legs
Unless you zip it

I said zip it!
Zip it closed!
I said zip it!
Zip it closed!

(Instrumental break)

When you're talking on and on
You must zip it
Before we've been asleep to long
You must zip it
When you're saying something wrong
You must zip it

Now zip it!
Fully shut!
Close it up!
Don't be a slut!
Stop talking!
Be silent!
Try to detect it!
It's not too late!
To zip it!
Fully shut!
Close it up!
Don't be a slut!
Stop talking!
Be silent!
Try to detect it!
It's not too late!
To zip it!
Zip it closed!

(Instrumental ending)
