Be Careful of Stones That You Throw
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 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 bad girl down the street should be run from our midst She drinks and she talks quite a lot She knows not to speak to me or my child my neighbor then smiled and I thought A tongue can accuse A car speeded by and the screaming of brakes a sound that made my blood chill For 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 oh who was that brave girl so sweet I covered the crushed broken body and sad the bad girl who lived down the street A tongue can accuse
