Be mindful of what you tell
Be mindful of who you tell
All business isn’t for all to hear
Shocking as it seems, that gossip is at an all time extreme
Those lips keep flapping,
Those lies keep passing
Be mindful of those whispering tongues
They will have you believe
They will have you deceived
Believing what is said and not what is seen
A fool believes in a rumor knowing that it’s a fib
Heed my warning and heed my cry
Be careful of those wandering eyes.
Out of the mouth comes a secret meant to be locked away
The people push and push, trying to find out what they seek
What happened to confidentiality, the good ol lock and key?
We love telling people’s business
But we never want ours exposed
Word travels on the soft comfort of the wind
Swirling round and round until it falls on “deaf” ears
Stirring up trouble and making it double
Just an all-around mess
Your secrets are not safe
You have put up walls around this place
Thinking that none can penetrate
But be mindful and see
That a sharp ear can really still hear
The stories being told…..
Don’t spread those lies,
Don’t tell what’s mine.
Keep your mouth closed and those stories in the fold.
For not everything should be shared. Beware of those whispering tongues.
