Up To My Neck




'm up to my neck in the woods
Cause you can't see the forest for the trees
Spreadin' that gossip like wildfire
And blowin' smoke that's chokin' me

Why don't you pick on somebody your own shoe size
And keep your nose from growin' right between your eyes
You took the foot right outta my mouth
Rumor's got it word gets around

I don't believe evefything that I see
In those funny paper news magazines
Most things I read ain't surprisin' to me
But there's a couple exceptions please

Like grasshoppers big as elephants
And Elvis is alive and well
You took the foot right outta my mouth
Rumor's got it word get around

Well You ain't just whistlin' dixie son
If you see me just twiddlin' my two thumbs
You took the foot right outta my mouth
Rumor's got it word sure gets around
