DON’T TALK

Don’t talk just to talk, don’t speak unless spoken to

Don’t talk out your ass, don’t talk till your blue

Don’t say things you’ll regret, you can’t take them back

Don’t say something mean, it will come back at you

Don’t talk in anger, it will be viewed as attack

Don’t say something sad, you’ll be thought of as black

Don’t say something stupid, they’ll think you’re a goof

Don't tell them they're wrong, they could hit the roof

Don't talk to strangers, it could get you in trouble

Don't tell people the truth, it could burst their bubble

Don't talk out of turn,don't talk out of school

Don't say something crazy, that will make you a fool

Don't yell at the children, don't yell at your wife

Don't tell her to shut up, she'll ruin your life

Don't yell at your mother, it may make her sad

Don't yell at your father, it may make him mad

Don't talk at the movies, you know that is rude

Don't say something dirty, don't say something crude

Don’t talk to police, and don’t talk to yourself

Don’t talk about suicide, they’ll think you need help

Don’t talk about politics, you’ll end up in a fight

Don’t talk about religion, people take that as slight

It’s advice I’ve been given, but I wouldn't listen

On looking back, there’s regrets I envision

I’ve tried to get better, I’ve tried and endeavored

But my mouth won’t abide, it’s not a conscious decision

Heed the advice, it will bring benefit?

I made it my my vice, now I'm feeling like shit

I thought I was brilliant, I thought I was clever

Today I know different, I’m as stupid as ever
