The song was only on the Billboard magazine charts for one week, reaching #18 on May 9, 1953. The flip side was "Is It Any Wonder?"




I’m honestly glad that I know how
But not always so much that others know I do
I think I could say enough
With the motions of my head
I’d smile back, nod, and so forth
To what you’ve said
Then we could stop and leave it there
Bad breath and receding gums
In the same trunk
With all of the words that we don’t need
I’m either spilling my guts
Or hiding from everyone I know
And I know the bones in my throat
Mouth open, exposed might evaporate
Clear my airway
But I’m seeing pieces of my body
Outside without me
Nothing that came stock was
Really that costly
I was only spare parts
And shoulder blades to begin with
A chest hollow save for
What I’ve been given, so
We can stop and
Leave it there
Bad breath and receding gums
In the same trunk
With all of the words that we don’t need
