"Nothing At All" as written by Johnny Mac Powell, Samuel Tai Anderson, Bradley B. C. Avery, David Carr and Mark D. Lee....
On and on and on and on and on she goes
Where she stops no one really knows
Everybody's got a problem so it seems and
She ain't afraid of tellin' me
If you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all

Well, on and on and on and on and on it goes
Now look who's the one playin' the fool
Criticizing, telling lies, putting down
Ain't you got nothin' better to do?
But if you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all

'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
Well, if you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all

Well, on and on and on and on and on we go
Playin' the game that never ends
I think it's time that we all realize
A broken heart is hard to mend
But if you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all

'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
Well, if you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all

James 3:5-10

'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
Well, if you can't say nothin' good, don't say nothin' at all
Don't say nothin' at all, don't say nothin' at all
Don't say nothin' at all

    My InterpretationThis song's lyrics are pretty straight forward. I have to say agree with what it is saying too: So many people just don't watch what they say - but theres also a lot more to this. It is also about having respect for other people (as the scripture said in the song clearly says). Its a very difficult thing to tame your tongue, but it is important that we do not curse people (who are made in God's image) and praise God with the same tongue.
