Ah, yes - I made you mad, I see
I would say, "Stop all this absurdity!"
But, what a sight I too must be
Yet, it's alright, it's okay, come whatever may
The sad truth is - it will only happen again one day
Because sometimes I just can't control the things I say
And it's too late to take them back once they have occurred
Oh, dear I might get stung - how dare the hornets nest I stir!
Exaggerated, exasperated, although thoroughly unsaturated words!
Oh, my - how they manage to pour forth
Might as well pack me up - send me riding on a horse
Or tie me down, tape my mouth - might that then enforce
The silence that really should abide
Oh, no, no - that won't do, good intentions set aside
You might as well say to me, "Prepare to open wide."
While any shred of pride has already gone kaput
So, I'll go ahead, I'll open wide - just insert that foot
I only have one request - please be careful where it's put!
