A tongue can abuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw

My neighbor was passing my garden one time
She stopped and I knew right away
That it was gossip not flowers she had on her mind
And this is what I heard my neighbor say

That girl down the street should be run from our midst
She drinks and she talks quite a lot
And she knows not to speak to my child or to me
And my neighbor then smiled and I thought

A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw

A car speeded by and the screaming of brakes
A sound that made my blood chill
My neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still

The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out
Awww, who was that brave girl so sweet
I covered the crushed broken body and said
"The bad girl who lived down the street"

A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw.
