[ music: natalie merchant/words: natalie merchant ]



To your common sense firm arguments
I won't listen to your voice of reason trying to change my mind.
I mind my feelings and not your words.
Didn't you notice i'm so headstrong even when i know i'm wrong?
Take this to your heart and into your head now:
Before you waste your time, call a truce and call a draw.

What's the use in mapping your views out in orderly form
When it does nothing but confuse and anger me more?
I mind my feelings and not your words.
Didn't you notice i'm so headstrong.
You're talking to a deaf stone wall.
Take this to your heart and into your head now:
The old wives' tale is true, i'll repeat it.
All is fair in love and war, that's how the famous saying goes.

Open up your eyes, see me for what i am:
Cast in iron, i won't break and i won't bend.
Take this to your heart and into your head now:
The old wives' tale is true, i'll repeat it.
All is fair in love and war, that's how the famous saying goes.

If i told you we were out to sea in a bottomless boat,
You'd try anything to save us, you'd try anything to keep us afloat.
And if we were living in a house afire,
I don't believe that you could rush out and escape it and not rescue me.
Take this to your heart and into your head now:
The old wives' tale is true, i'll repeat it.
All is fair in love and war, that's how the famous saying goes.
Listen, i think they were talking to you.
