Shutting Up Ain't So Easy

Shutting up ain't so easy

Especially when my words are oh so pleasing

A compliment on your brand new hair

Everyone's bound to stop and stare

Shutting up ain't so easy

My mouth seems to run away with me

Never obeys any shushes or hushes

Just keeps on with the words

And there's bunches and bunches

Shutting up ain't so easy

Take it from me

It's not easy peasy

I try and I try with all my might

But my stubborn mouth just won't stay tight

Shutting up ain't so easy

I sit in the classroom as the teacher glares

My mouth doesn't seem to care

It runs and it runs like a marathon's going

One more word

Knew detention was coming

Shutting up ain't so easy

Just ask my mom when she sees me

The End
