She's given up talking, don't say a word
Even in the classroom not a dickey bird

Unlike other children,  she's seen and never heard
She's given up talking won't say a word

You see her in the playground, standing on her own
Everybody wonders why shes all alone

Someones got her angry, someones got her scared
She's given up talking wont say a word

Ah but when she comes home its a  yap, yap, yap
Words are running freely like a water from a tap

Her brothers and her sisters can't get a word in edgeways
But when shes back in school again she goes into a daze


Ah but when she comes home its a  yap, yap, yap
Words are running freely like a water from a tap

Her brothers and her sisters can't get a word in edgeways
But when shes back in school again she goes into a daze


She's given up talking, don't say a word
Even in the classroom not a dickey bird

Unlike other children,  she's seen and never heard
She's given up talking won't say a word

She's given up talking, don't say a word
Don't say a word (repeat to end)
