Don't talk about commitment
don't talk about it here
don't talk about the russians
don't mention your fears
don't talk about the black man
don't talk about the rope
it only causes problems
we got plenty of those, i said

don't talk about it, don't talk...

sing a song of sixpence
a packet full of lies
don't dare to love your children
just let the baby cry
but when the pie was opened
they'd forgotten how to sing
there was larry, moe and curly joe
and martin luther king....

(don't talk about it)

like handcuffs for houdini
this whole thing is a con
you know what's gonna happen
but you don't know how it's done
somebody he once told me
that the key was in his mouth
like handcuffs and houdini
it looks so simple
but you just can't work it out

don't talk about it, don't talk...
