Things My Mother Said

Lyrics

Cease and Desist!  There’s a fungus among us!
Beauty’s only skin deep-
If Ms. Smith jumped off a cliff, would you?
Don't dish it out if you can't take it!

You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip.
I don’t want to hear it!
You know this hurts me worse, than it hurts you-
Don't dish it out if you can't take it!

Things my Mother said - goin’ round and round in my head.
Those things my Mother said-  goin’ round and round inside my head.

Stupid people call other people stupid.
The proof is in the pudding.
And If Wishes Were Horses - then Beggars Could Ride.
Don't dish it out if you can't take it!

Things my Mother said - goin’ round and round in my head.
Those things my Mother said-  goin’ round and round inside my head.

Better watch what you say-

Little Pitchers have Big ears

Those things my mother said are still with me…

She said, “You can be anything you want to be … when you grow up!”
