Name of Song: Safe Talk

Always use good manners,
Thank you and goodbye,
How are you today my friend,
How’s your daughter’s eye.

Is Rachael still on the swim team,
And Freddie pitching well,
My Sandra got an A in math
and is dating fullback Dell.

Oh it’s so exciting,
No time for my own self,
Kids take up your everything
so there’s nothing ever else.

Chorus
Safe talk is the answer,
I know it sounds unreal,
But never any problems
with acceptance of one’s zeal.
I only talk about solid thing
Much easier and precise,
Fewer misunderstandings
and people think you’re wise.

I know I sound quite pompous,
Well I’ve learned the proven way,
Most can’t talk about spirits cause
they’d have to participate.

Just try to make it easy,
People wanna break,
They like to chat about trivia,
It’s a break from horrible states.
