sticks and stones

you would have kept those words on your tongue
if you had known the hurt they had done
while your fists stay by your side
your words they bruise me deep inside

i'd rather have sticks and stones and broken bones
than the words you say to me
cause i know bruises heal and cuts will seal
but your words beat the life from me

sometimes your words are thick as lead
you swing them strong upside my head
what hasn't killed has made me strong
so i'll take my scars and move along

i'd rather have sticks and stones and broken bones
than the words you say to me
cause i know bruises heal and cuts will seal
but your words beat the life out of me
