This town belongs to you and your tricks of confidence
All the pavements for miles around are littered with your footprints
Now every girl I get close to seems to be wearing your perfume
And the clock strikes the letters of your name, both midnight and noon

But I used to shoot my mouth off
Till you'd had enough of me
Once or twice nightly
I know I've got my faults

And among them I can't control my tongue
But if you didn't believe me
Why did you have to leave me
With my mouth almighty?

Mouth almighty, that's what I've got
Mouth almighty telling you what's what
Mouth almighty

I wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty
Wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty
Wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty

So I threw away the rose and held onto the thorn
Crawling round with my crooner cuff-links and my calling card cologne
But the realization of being replaced starts to tell tales across my face
Without a soul to talk to or a hair out of place

But I used to shoot my mouth off
Till you'd had enough of me
Once or twice nightly
I know I've got my faults

And among them I can't control my tongue
But if you didn't believe me
Why did you have to leave me
With my mouth almighty?

Mouth almighty, that's what I've got
Mouth almighty telling you what's what
Mouth almighty

I wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty
Wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty
Wish I'd never opened my mouth almighty, oh
