Words and Music by Bonnie Dodd(
So be careful of stones that you throw)
Oh, a tongue can accuse and carry bad news
Gossip is cheap and it's lo-o-ow
So unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Just be careful of stones that you throw
SPOKEN: A neighbor was passin' my garden one time. She stopped and Iknewright away that it was gossip, not flowers, she had on her mind. Andthis is what Iheard my neighbor say-"
You know, that girl down the street should be runfrom ourmidst. She drinks and she talks quite a lot. She knows not to speak tomy childand me." My neighbor then smiled and I thought
Oh, a tongue can accuse and carry bad news
Gossip is cheap and it's lo-o-ow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw
SPOKEN: Just then a car speeded by in the screamin' of brakes-a soundthatmade my blood chill. For my neighbor's one child had been pulled fromthe pathand saved by a girl lyin' still. The child was unhurt and my neighborcried out "
Oh,who was that brave girl so sweet?" I covered the crushed broken bodyand said"
The bad girl who lived down the street."
So unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Just be careful of stones that you throw
