Spelling Words

Mincing words before you speak,
Wait your turn on hands and knees
With both hands tied to both feet
Whenever asked, go willingly
Whenever asked, go willingly

Heavy hands tend to heavy hearts
While every effort ends as a false start
You can lie or answer honestly
Just whenever asked, go willingly
Whenever asked, go willingly
Whenever asked, go willingly

Little switches cut you down to size
While distant lovers blindly occupy
You can try to separate wants from needs
Just spelling words that never keep
Spelling words that never keep

Mirrors and mouths will always repeat
Hearsay and rumors regarding defeat
You can try to separate wants from needs
Just spelling words that never keep
Spelling words that never keep
Spelling words that never keep
Spelling words that never keep
