How many times have you been the joke? How many times have you been hurt? So many times, our friends got their laughs. Is it really that funny to make friends feel like crap? There comes a time when the joke's gone too far, and I think it sucks! We've got to understand How our humor and actions can hurt people, The people we call friends. So now you laugh, but you know when it comes back around to you... Is it really that funny when we all sit around Laughing at one another, bringing each other down. Is our friendship really friendship, or is our friendship just a joke? If that's what friendship means to you, I'd rather be alone. Respect, we've got to understand How our humor and actions can hurt the people, The people we call friends. So now you laugh, but you know when it comes back around to you... You'll wish you kept your mouth shut Let's draw the line, and start the trend, Where respect and friendship must go hand in hand. We won't hurt each other just to make us laugh. When the joke isn't funny will you take it back? keep it shut It's not worth the effort and it's not worth the time Thinking of comebacks and condescending lines. keep it shut When your friends are really hurt will you feel like a jerk? Because it wasn't that funny, but you can't take it back. So why not just keep your mouth shut! keep it shut.
