~My Ears are Burning~

~Prologue~

Words are a powerful weapon, please be considerate of others...

"MY EARS ARE BURNING"

Hold up! wait a minute, what did you say?

I know you're not talking to me that way

now you might be joking and it might seem funny to

but this black iron skillet has its eyes on you

now I love you, everything in me says I do

but if you call me out of my name one more time

you'll need an ambulance before I'm through

I'm going to call your mother and father to meet you at the hospital door, so they can help pick whats left of you up off the floor

your sisters and brothers better bring a mop and pail, so they can help clean up the mess why you lie about how you fell

you get away with a lot of things you say and do, thats because I think I'm still in love with you, but if you call me one more name in that sunday suit, I'm going to introduce you to this trojan boot, those bibles on the side of your bed will be all upside your head

always reading and preaching the word of God, you need to close that book, God's not in the market with spiritual crooks

wholly rollers, bouncing, stomping and waiving all over the place, while gulping down six packs with a smile on their face

now I'm not perfect by a long shot, I'm the first to admit I make mistakes especially when I'm hot, but these weapons of words are a powerful sword and only leave behind emotional discord

so the next time I say something you don't like, I suggest you take the dogs for a walk or ride your bike

Some say "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me" must have thicker skin than I do because words do hurt especially when coming from the lips we love the most.
