The Lyrics

Oh, The Words People Say, now
Every night and every day, now
All "Four Letters" are okay, now
Those "Four Letters" are okay

In the home, and on the TeeVee
In the chat rooms on the PC
Do I hear right, is it just me?
Does everyone talk more obscene?

Bleep-bleep-bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, hush!
It could make a longshoreman blush..
Poolroom profanity,
Are the Words People Say!

Even little kids are using it
English, all are abusing it
Time we started refusing it
This bad language, people say

No one's mouth remains moral
Conversations sound horrible
Talkin' 'bout such things like "Sex, oral"
It's a nasty habit game

Bleep-bleep-bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, hush!
It could make a longshoreman blush
Poolroom profanity,
Are the Words People Say!

In the bars, and on cable shows
Gross talk, the kind to curl your toes
Grandma'd sure have some soap for those
Older folks know what I mean..

Good clean talk, tell me where it went
Should be a better way to vent
Let's give it up for good, not lent...
Some speech freedom's gone to far

Bleep-bleep-bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, hush!
It can make a longshoreman blush,
Poolroom profanity,
Are the Words People Say!

Listen 'round, tell me what you hear
More sewer language every year
So shocking to the mind and ear
First amendment, overdone..

Let's get conversation sanity
Not such vile vulgar vanity
Where's the pride in profanity?
People don't give a da da da da da..

Bleep-bleep-bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, hush!
It could make a longshoreman blush,
Poolroom profanity
Oh, the Words People Say!

Whoa, the Words People Say!

Who could improve on that? Television is getting worse - can't have any comedies without sex and obscenities.

Especially liked "lets give it up for good, not Lent". It is a shame that with over 4000 words in the English language such a "select" few get so much play.
