They Don't Know What They Talk About


Don't you talk about people,
With venom in your mouth...
Until you know the facts.
With just the facts you talk about.

And don't you talk about the people,
With a poison spewed!
Until you know exactly,
What it is that you do.

Some people like to pick on people,
Just to victimize...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

Some people like to criticize,
Based on rumored lies...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

People stir up dirt,
Just to see somebody hurt...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

And don't you talk about the people,
With a poison spewed!
Until you know exactly,
What it is that you do.

Some people like to pick on people,
Just to victimize...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

And some people like to stir up dirt,
Just to see somebody hurt...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

And don't you talk about the people,
With a poison spewed!
Until you know exactly,
What it is that you do.

Some people like to criticize,
Based on rumored lies...
But,
They don't know what they talk about.

People peeping pettiness to drop on people seen,
But...
They don't know what they talk about.

People peeping pettiness to drop on people seen,
But...
They don't know what they talk about.

People love to pick on people just to victimize,
But...
They don't know what they talk about.

People love to pick on people just to victimize,
But...
They don't know what they talk about.
No they don't,
Know.
They don't know what they talk about.
No they don't,
Know.
They don't know what they talk about.
