Oh Tongue,
What a wonderful organ you are?
You are a two side of a coin;
With you i speak,
Without you am a dumb being,
With you i taste the testable, share 
feelings and emotions.
With you i sin, lied, conspire, deceives 
and confess,
You bring fortune, good-luck and 
happiness to man,
And with you sorrow, sadness and 
misfortune is brought upon man.
With you life can be taken and can be 
With you they can be war and with 
you peace can be restored.
With you sweet home can be wrecked 
and wrecked home can be build.
Oh Tongue,
Why did you bring misery, chaos,
 to man”s life and to this world.
