Speak Wisely
You can talk about other people
You can talk about the weather
You can talk about other people’s business
And how you can do it better than them
You can talk about the evils of this world
And how everyone is so cruel
Or you can keep on runnin’ that mouth of yours
And let ‘em all think you’re a fool

But silence is golden and talk is cheap
You make much more sense when you don’t make a peep

My grandfather told me
One day when he came to call
He said, “If you have nothin’ nice to say
You got no reason to stand up proud and tall”
Well, who am I to complain
And just add to all the noise?
‘cause people will be people
And they’ll use their tools like they’re toys

But silence is golden and all you talk is trash
It’s gonna come back around and knock you on your ****
So speak wisely or not at all

Yeah, silence is golden and all you talk is trash
It’s gonna come back around and knock you on your ****
So speak wisely or not at all
