Sticks and Stones

Lyrics

I picked myself up in the school yard

Bruised and sore I couldn’t go far

I picked up my books that still lay strewn

I tried to speak you had already gone

 

Some fight for fun some fight for the game

I had no choice but to act the same

A schoolboy’s pride meant so much to me

And all I want is them to let you be

 

Cos…..If I could If I could I would spell for you

If I could If I could I would speak for you

If I could If I could I would learn for you

If I could If I could I would run for you

 

I wanted to tell you that kids aren’t all the same

And as I watched you cry I felt so ashamed

 

I remember the words about sticks and stones

But names still hurt when your on your own

Sticks and stones might break your bones (But names wont hurt you)

Sticks and stones might break your bones (But names wont hurt you)

 

Cos…..

If I could If I could I would spell for you

If I could If I could I would speak for you

If I could If I could I would learn for you

If I could If I could I would run for you

 

Sticks and stones might break your bones (You gotta keep your courage up)

(And names won’t hurt you)

Sticks and stones might break your bones (You gotta keep your courage up )

(But names won’t hurt you)

Sticks and stones might break your bones (You gotta keep your courage up )

But Names WONT hurt you.
