John Mayer My Stupid Mouth Lyrics

Last updated: 11/03/2009 10:00:00 AM

My stupid mouth
Has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see
She was offended
She said "well anyway..."
Just dying for a subject change

Oh, another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips
She looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly, An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what JUST slipped out and what went wrong

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now... Starting now

One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked
I just wanna be funny
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

I'm never speaking up again
it only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
than she desert me

oh i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
Starting now, starting now...

My Stupid Mouth | Reviewer: Eugene | 6/10/09

I just want to say that there are only a few artist that attect my attention. John has some way of placing himself into our minds and saying wath we think in such a way that no one can believe it. from a sound engineers perspective this is what we want on stage. the best. thanks john for still just being you in your music

Love It | Reviewer: Jamee | 6/2/09

For such a long time this beautiful melody of the chorus was in my head. Having no idea what song it was I stumbled upon it by accident a few days ago. Now I can't get enough of the song! I am a girl and I can totally relate to the feelings that John is portraying in My Stupid Mouth. How many times have I wished I could rewind the tape of life and edit out some of the things I have said! I think it's safe to say we have all been there..

This song is the best song eva | Reviewer: Emmz | 8/16/08

Oh my gosh...This song is ALWAYS stuck in my head and I'm finally learning the lyrics so I can sing along. I have My Stupid Mouth on my iPod and lately it's basically the only thing I listen to. My friend really relates to this song (even though he's actually never heard it before!) and I think he should hear it and listen carefully to the lyrics..he's a boy desperate for someone to like him even though he doesn't need to try so hard..John Mayer is Amazing!!!

My Stupid Mouth | Reviewer: Lee Bueno | 12/7/07

Although I personally like this song, John Mayor was too straight forward. The song speaks about John Mayor’s mouth, he tries too hard only with the intention to be funny. The Joke is on him though for it backfires.

love the lyrics | Reviewer: haleigh | 7/24/07

i havent heard john mayor sing it but audra mcdonald sang it and switched around all the shes to hes and it was soo amazing for me to hear. shes my idol and i love her and then with this song it just fit everything going on in my life and i love it.

GAS :D | Reviewer: Carrie | 6/23/07

You're stupid fart. Well.. that's attractive. Girls just love hearing about your gassy experiences. I believe people need to get other people's oppinion on the lyrics BEFORE it's actually posted. But what ever. Do what you want you gassy man. :D

Audra McDonald's Version | Reviewer: Semenya | 6/23/07

Actually never heard John's original, but love the words and melody as sung by Audra McDonald on her "Build A Bridge" CD. Plan to perform it myself on an annual Mother's Day concert especially because the lyrics consistently refer to "Mama said, think before speaking." It's a perfect song for the concert next spring.
Thanks, John.
