Don't Talk With Your Mouth Open

If you can’t keep up, don’t start the chase.
Don’t talk with your mouth open;
Your habit’s bragging, but your action’s lagging.
And now your smear campaign
has turned into slurred speech.

If you can’t make it rain, then don’t ask me to dance.
Don’t talk with your mouth open.
I know much more by the chances you take.
You have nothing nice to play.
And your heart’s not in it to win shit.

You can let it ride
(let it ride)
or roll the dice.
You’ve rambled enough
(You are what you say).
You’re gambling too much.
You get what you pay for.

If you’re not gonna hit, then don’t ask me to stay.
Don’t talk with your mouth open.
If we were playing mouths instead of hands,
it would be a whole different game.
And I think you’ve sweat enough for today.

You followed me here, but now you can’t follow through.
Don’t talk with your mouth open.
I know it hurts when you think,
but it’s even more painful when you speak.
And your brain is just ruining your face.

I think it’s safe to say that it’s dangerous to speak
when you’re just putting dirty money where your mouth is.
What a pretty, shit-eating grin.
Don’t you know where that shit’s been?
Don’t you know the kind of shit they can make out of shit?
So don’t talk with your mouth open
when your moneymaker’s lost its win.
