My ears have never got me into any major trouble,
But my mouth has caused my troubles to double.
Sometimes my mouth talks without my brains, ok!
My mouth says stuff my brain did not want to say.
My mouth communicating with brain, is what I lack.
Because my mouth cannot suck its own words back.
I’ll try connecting my mouth to my brain and heart,
I may have to talk slowly, but at least it's a good start.
