I never have a chance to say
Everything I want to say.
But that's okay!
I don't need to say a thing anyway.

Just want to take it in,
See the world, watch it spin.
Learn to play the violin.
I'll even try to shed any words from my head.
Think in Mentalese instead.

Don't call me on a telephone.
I don't want to be alone but
I have grown out of it,
So leave a message at the tone.

Just want to take it in.
See the world, watch it spin.
Learn to play the violin.
I'll even try to shed any words from my head.
Think in Mentalese instead.

And I'll take a vow of silence.
Shut up, shut up, shut up.
I'll take a vow of silence.
Shut up, shut up, shut up.
Shut up, shut up, shut up.
I'll take a vow of-

Silence means that you can't speak.
You can't let things out, they stay inside.
You just sit and nod like a quiet freak,
And you hold your tongue and ya swallow your pride.
And if you're travelling down the street and suddenly witness a crime,
You gotta keep it to yourself, you gotta keep it inside your quiet little mind,
Until the end of time.

And you've got to:
Shut up, shut up, shut up
(Seen and not heard)
Shut up, shut up, shut up
(Not a single word for the rest of your life.)

Now I'm no silent snob,
But Teller and Silent Bob
Tend to do an awful job.
But let me tell you, son.
Harpo Marx is the one.
I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have a tongue.

Woah! I'll take a vow of silence!
Shut up, shut up, shut up.
I'll take a vow of silence.
Shut up, shut up, shut up.
Shut up, shut up, shut up.

I'll take a vow of-
I'll take a vow of-
I'll take a vow of-
Silence.
Silence.
Silence.
