Corey Smith – Speak The Truth lyrics

Hey young man lend me your ears
I’ve got a few pearls to give away
If you wanna change the world, you’re goin bout it wrong
It all starts with meaning what you say

Speak the truth but keep it short and keep it simple
Say it loud and say it whenever you can
Oh you’re bound to be a lousy politician
But at least you’ll be a decent man

One day soon your time will come
Be ready when you get the call
State your name and tell it like it is
You’ll never fly if you’re afraid to fall

Speak the truth but keep it short and keep it simple
Say it loud and say it whenever you can
Oh you’ll never be a sought after attorney
But at least you’ll be a decent man

It’s a worlds full of liars a world full of thieves
And money makes them all go crazy
So keep your eyes wide open stay fixed upon the prize
And if it all starts gettin hazy
Remember what your Daddy says

Speak the truth but keep it short and keep it simple
Say it loud and say it whenever you can
Oh you’ll never be a salesman of the year
But at least you’ll be a decent man
But at least you’ll be a decent man
