Chuck Berry – Mum's The Word lyrics

Mum's the word, don't start a ruckus, it's best Aunt Sue don't know
''cause she's so proud, so if she finds out I reckon we ought alert Uncle Joe

Mum's the word, don't start a ruckus, Aunt Sue don't know Uncle Joe
If rumour starts 'bout what she's been doin', I reckon we ought alert Uncle Joe

Mum's the word, don't start a ruckus, Aunt Sue's been doing it, too
They tell Uncle Joe everything they know, reckon we ought alert Aunt Sue
''cause Uncle Joe's liable to hurt Aunt Sue

Mum's the word, un-huh, she done heard, Aunt Sue started to turn him on
Say I heard some talk, you ain't got no squawk, been checkin' out stone to stone
Just pack up and leave me alone
