We can't accept any bloodsports
whether local forests or private resorts
We'll shut down the rodeos
and all the other brutal shows

We'll stop the awful snap
and ban the leghold trap
We'll unlock every lab door
atrocities can't go on anymore

We'll empty stands and close the tracks
no more tired, numbered backs
We will tear down the fighting rings
healing wounds mercy brings

We will make others hear each cry
then soon the slaughterhouse blood will dry
We will ease the burdens of the beast
overworking and whipping ceased

Long overdue this war we've waged
to the free all those oppressed and caged
We will never stop until we've won
and all the abusers are on the run
