Ken (The Mountain) Hays

If only I could zip
tightly shut my lips

I might, just might be able
to make my life more stable

For out of this mouth of mine you see
Come words which cause trouble for me

Its not that I'm mean and nasty nosiree
Its just sometimes they get away from me

But if only I could zip
tightly shut my lips

But it might not work I fear
They might come out my ears!

So perhaps I should take the time
To discipline the mind

I wouldn't have to worry about slips
I wouldn't have to zip my lips

The words that come out of this mouth of mine
Would be true, necessary, and kind
