Jump, Little Children – Hold Your Tongue lyrics

Hold your tongue and walk away.
Say it's been a lovely day.
Say tomorrow evening's fine.
MEET me by St. John's divine.
Until DISCORDANT bells have wrung.
Hold...hold your tongue.

Hold your tongue and walk away.
Say it's been a heavenly day.
Angels sing a lulluby.
Hush, now, don't you start to cry.
Gilded wing and silver LUNG.
Hold...hold your tongue.

I'll say what I want to say, and when I want it said.
But TONIGHT'S NOT COMING down on me!
La lala lalala. La lalalala. Ohhhhh. Ohhhh, ohhhh.

Hold your tongue until you're gone.
All your words might come undone.
Say goodnight and walk away.
Silent bels begin to sway.
CHIMING melodies unsung.
Hold...hold your tongue.
