Bad News travels fast 
And if it's about you you'll probably hear 'bout it last 
But when they press up 
And check up 
And they ask 
You gotta keep perspective on the future and the past 
And laugh

While they keep talkin' 
Talk, talk, talkin, 
Chicken heads keep squawkin' 
Power of the spoken word is infinite 
You can tell 
'Cause people are always talking 
Talking on the run, talking while walking, 
Talking in line, talking in circles, 
Talking in time all over the world 
Talkin' 'bout whatever's on their mind- that's fine 
Talkin' 'bout who they hawkin, who they watchin, who they clockin, 
Who they heard was up to something poppin' 
Always talkin' about who they remember and who's forgotten 
Who's rockin' the set and who's floppin', droppin' out 
Talkin' 'bout people from the cradle to the coffin 
Talkin' 'bout people, talkin' 'bout people, talkin' 'bout people, 
Talkin' 'bout people non-stop talkin' often

Bad News travels fast 
And if it's about you you'll probably hear 'bout it last 
But when they press up 
And check up 
And they ask 
You gotta keep perspective on the future and the past 
And laugh

People talk shit 
Their minds reinforce it 
Spittin' out words and thoughts that are amorphous 
Pushin' sloppy sound out of their vocal orifice 
Like it ain't bein' recorded 
Sometimes a words scorch is worse than torches 
What's more 
Is the talk ain't uniform or rehearsed 
It's the richest, the poorest,
From CEO boardrooms to porches to alley ways and gutters 
From coast to coast, east to west, south to north 
It's people talking of course! 
Like life is a courtroom 
Most bullshittin' from midnight to high noon and back again 
Blacks and the Blacker thans 
Whites and the Africans 
Far to little action far to much satisfaction 
In philanderin' usin' sex like a sedative 
Repetitive like rhetoric 
I'm bettin' ya think ya nice 'cause you give free add-vice right? 
But unless you got a tight alternative it's best to let it just live! 
And raise the octave up to the positive 
Even though they try and stop you up 
Arteries cloggeded 
The Black man targeted that's how they set it off, they said it 
But in the end it will be only them that's effected by they negative vibe 
I know it hurts, there is no indigestion worse 
Than that which comes from having to eat your own words, 
I heard two people need not bicker in a burning home 
But some people know how to live everybodies life but their own so, 
Here's the poem dedicated 
To the hatred propagated by the ill-fated 
Snakes that's waitin' in grass 
Those that talk the most got the least to say 
But that ain't nothin' new 
And it ain't even really all that
