Hey sister, have you heard?
Some people stand like trees, without a word
And what that means is that some people don't talk

Oh, please pardon me, Mister
Yeah, know I just didn't hear you the first time that you said that
But now that you repeat for me, I'll be sure to do what I can
Ya, know I'm going to do what I can

Do what I can, do, do, do, do what I can
Gonna do what I can
Do what I can, do, do, do, do what I can
But no more, you understand?

Oh, please pardon me, father
Ya know I just didn't hear you that, that, that
That first time that you said that
Help me, help me, help me, help me

Repeat it, repeat it, repeat it
I'll be sure do, do, do what I can

Do what I can, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can
Gotta do what I can, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can
But no more, you understand?

It's of utmost importance
We're dealing with volatile substance
It's of utmost importance
We're dealing with volatile substance

It's of utmost importance
We're dealing with volatile substance
It's of utmost importance
We're dealing with volatile substance

I had so much on my mind
I was so glad when I died, oh

Listen to me, baby
Can you keep a secret for me?
Make sure no one finds out
'Cause then the lights will go out

And I will find you out
And I will cut you up
Uh hmm, don't ask me why
Because, I said, I said, I said

I'm gonna do what I can, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can
Gotta do what I can, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can

Do, do, do, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can
Do, do, do, do what I can
But I'll have none of that, you understand?

Don't you know nothin'?
You never tell on someone
Don't you know nothin'?
You never tell on someone

Don't you know nothin'?
You never tell on someone
Don't you know nothin'?
You ain't never going to tell on someone

What you going to do?
Gonna turn, gonna turn rat fink?
What you wanna do?
Do want to see, do you wanna see what it's like to sink?

Sink down, sink down, sink down
Down, down to the bottom of the river
Sink down, sink, sink down down
Down, down to the bottom of the river

Sink, down sink, sink down, down
Down, down to bottom of the river
Sink down, sink, sink down, down
Down, down to the bottom of the river

Don't you know no one?
You never tell on someone
Don't you know no one?
You never tell on someone

Don't you know no one?
You never tell on someone
Don't you know no one?
You ain't never gonna tell on someone

Don't you know no one?
You ain't never gonna tell on someone
Don't you know no one?
You ain't never gonna tell on someone

Ah, ah, oh, I tell you what it's like
I tell you what it's like, oh
I stood right up in the heart of Hell
I never tell, I never tell, I never tell

I stood right up in the heart of Hell
I'm never gonna tell, tell, tell, tell

I'm never, never, never, never
Gonna tell, tell, tell, tell
Nothing, nothing, never
Gonna tell, tell, tell, tell

I'm never, never, never, never
Gonna tell, tell, tell, tell
Nothing, nothing, never
Gonna tell, tell, tell, tell
Ah
