it’s my fault really
I gave you the sticks
Taught you how to throw the stones
and you broke me .

sticks and stones
have broken my bones
but your words
Always hurt
this sport is played
at a leisurely pace
no-one playing it ever
seems to be in a race

some are good
at the short game
whilst others are better
at the long

during the tournament
strokes will be calculated
to make sure the score
isn't deflated or overrated

what stick shall
you employ
on the course's
tricky ploy

oh the ball has just landed
in the thick vegetation
it scattered the birdies
which were sitting on its plantation

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words can never hurt me

Words can't break my bones
But they sure can

Break my heart
hey, do ya
think ya
could break me
off a piece
of that


real quick
I can stop at just one about like I can eat just one slice of bacon...

**** ain't happenin'

I swear when I find you
I'll just be happy to have you.
I won't trip off of lost time.
That time was used wisely to mold us together
so we will never fall apart.

I wake up in sweats every morning
**** won't come off until I shower
Nothing beats an early mornin
of a death of a love

Love likes to stick
Makes you quiver
Sweat bullets in sweatpants
She left behind-for me to die every wake

There once was a man named Rick
Who carried a red blackthorn stick
He flailed it blatantly
that ancient shillelagh
The bataireacht fighter was quick!

If the world should cave in two
I don’t know what I’d do
as I’m not Doctor Who
so I guess I’d just save you.
If you’re scared at night
if you've have had a fright
would you let me put it right
by turning on the light?
If you graze your knee
I’d give you something on me
my last plaster for free:

all these things I say
are here to make you smile
so you won’t run a mile
stick around for a while.
