The Lyrics

SPEAK UP!!!


You’re taciturn…
You’re taciturn…
You’re taciturn…


Hey! You over there, with your head up your Butt
You’re like a ten day old cadaver with its lips sown shut
When you actually speak, I’m lucky if we chat
You couldn’t talk the ears off… of the tiniest gnat
When you fumble for words, you only manage to blab
Your words are so few, you don’t have a vocab.


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn - home fry you never speak up


Your silence is creepy, you could scare Cro Mag
All you do is make faces - your tongue won’t wag
You talk about as much, as monks I know
Who took their vows of silence thirty years ago


You’re taciturn - You never speak up!!
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never speak up


You’re so introverted, that I’ve heard it being said
Some have scoffed, “you’re better off, talking to the dead”
You talk in the mirror, I’ve heard you talk to your dog
But reflections and WOOF! don’t make for dialogue


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn - home fry you never speak up


Silence can be golden, when you’re watching porn
You make closed captioning seem like it’s saddle worn
You never find the courage to spill your guts
I really hate to tell you but you’re an unyappity yutz


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never SPEAK UP!!


Everyday you’re playin’ charades like you’re Harpo Marx
And you use your middle finger to make snide remarks
Are you really dumb, and words won’t do
Or are you telling me about your I.Q.?


You’re taciturn - You never speak up!
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never SPEAK UP!!


You’re always acting withdrawn, every night and day
Just like the role of a stone in a grade school play
You could be an actor, a real stoic fixture
You could win an Oscar, in a silent picture


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never SPEAK UP!!


I know that keeping to yourself shouldn’t be a crime
But I want to kill, cause I’m working with a mime
He’s running his hands. I’m running my saw
He’s a circus performer, there should be a law…


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never speak up!


A real work of art, that’s what you ain’t
If you had an artist pallet, there’d be no paint
What’s with the muted tones, and noticed hush
Even Mona Lisa speaks, from beyond the brush


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never speak up


You’re never big on words, and don’t say sh!t
I now pronounce you: INNARTICULATE
You have been found guilty of gross reticence
Do you have some words prepared for your defense?


You’re taciturn - You never speak up
I said you’re taciturn, homefry you never SPEAK UP!!


SPEAK UP!!
SPEAK UP!!


Plenty of teeth, and two good lips
But not a single phrase, is ever quiped
I’m tired of silence and reluctance to talk
Man, I can get more English, from cue balls and chalk

You’re taciturn - God, you never speak up!
I said you’re taciturn. Homefry you never SPEAK UP!!
You’re taciturn - You’re acting kind of weird
You’re taciturn - Man you’re boring me to tears
You’re taciturn - Don’t you ever speak up?
You’re taciturn - You’re a sick pup
You’re taciturn - man you never speak up
I said you’re taciturn. Why don’t you ever SPEAK UP!
You’re taciturn - Man you never speak up
I said you’re taciturn - Homefry, you never SPEAK UP!!!
