The Specials – Call Me Names lyrics
How can you be so horrible?
The things you say are terrible
You make me feel ashamed
When you call me names

How come you think it's wise
To tell those wicked lies
You play such silly games
When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks
No skin off my nose
I'll take the flack and hand it back
It's just the way that it goes
You dish the dirt but names don't hurt
You never break my bones
I'll grit my teeth but underneath
It' only sticks and stones

You think you win a prize
To cut me down to size
You make outrageous claims
When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks
No skin off my nose
I'll take the flack and hand it back
It's just the way that it goes
You dish the dirt but names don't hurt
You never break my bones
I'll grit my teeth but underneath
It' only sticks and stones

How can you say those things
When they aim to sting
It always sounds the same
When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks
No skin off my nose
I'll take the flack and hand it back
It's just the way that it goes
You dish the dirt but names don't hurt
You never break my bones
I'll grit my teeth but underneath
It' only sticks and stones

You never say what you mean
You never mean what you say
You never say what you mean
You never mean what you say
You never say what you mean
When you call me names
When you call me names
When you call me names
When you call me names
