"Keep Your Mouth Shut" as written by and Willie D/weston Hines....
(And if the honeys think I'm stuck up,
I tell 'em shut the fuck up,
I tell 'em shut the fuck up.)

All that she meant was good,
All that she meant was good.
Give her some time,
Give her some room.
All that she meant was good.

Better keep your mouth shut, babe,
Next to your chest,
Better keep your mouth closed baby,
And keep it close to your chest,
Better keep your mouth closed baby
Keep it close to your chest.

All that she meant was good.
(Not goin' down that road)
All that she meant was good.
Give her some time, give her some space.
All that she meant was good.
How she reacted was right.

Mother I'm hungry, mother I'm hungry.
Father will you feed me
Father will you feed me
Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me.
Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me.
Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me.

How you reacted was right.
Not goin' down that road
Not goin' down that road

Mother I'm hungry, father will you feed me?
Best to keep your mouth shut, baby,
And keep it close to your chest.

    General CommentI'm sorry, but I'm not diggin the lyrics, for one they're misleading from what they sound to be. All the words he was speaking in this song i thought was about him struggling and bjork being a female in his head talking softly about irrelevant stuff. What really bugs me about this song is that the lyrics Bjork sings aren't original, just rehash's of "You've been flirting again" lyrics from her Post album. Anyway nice intro though.

    General CommentHe's angry and she's trying to calm him down. I guess Björk is Tricky's sensitive side in this song. He's coming to terms with what's happening and it kinda sounds like he won over Björk in the end. But I didn't know that they were snippets of "You've Been Flirting." Interesting.

    General CommentTricky's parents died when he was young.
    I wonder if that has anything to do with the lines about asking his mother/father to feed him...?
