  • 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

    One more thing
    Why is it my fault?
    So maybe I try too hard
    But it's all because of this desire
    I just want to be liked
    I just want to 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
    Starting now
