7. THE HORSE'S MOUTH

people in the neighborhood tellin' me that you ain't no good

talking with authority

they heard it from ol so and so 

the truth is that they just don't know

but that don't stop 'em telling me

 

it's just like a newspaper

so much attitude baby

it makes me wanna walk away

you can't believe a word they say

and i don't wanna hear any way

 

you don't wanna know so don't even ask

'cause if you don't hear it from the horse's mouth

you're hearing it from a horse's ass

 

they're doing it to a lot of folks 

they bury you and then make jokes

remember what they did to ol dale?

a circus of false accusations ostracizing a lonely lady

started by an evil clown

it's just like a newspaper

so much attitude baby

it makes me wanna walk away

you can't believe a word they say

and i don't wanna hear anyway

 

you don't wanna know so don't even ask

'cause if you don't hear it from the horse's mouth

you're hearing it from a horse's ass

 

i heard it on the street

i saw it on tv

 

people got their reasons and their reasons can be private

but their privacy is often invaded

standing by the water cooler listening to another fool who's talkin' 'bout the size of your paycheck

 

it's just like a newspaper

so much attitude baby

it makes me wanna walk away

you can't believe a word they say 

and i don't wanna hear anyway

 

you don't wanna know so don't even ask

'cause if you don't hear it from the horse's mouth

you're hearing it from a horse's ass
