​I'm Gonna Tell On You

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album Bein' Free (1970).

I'm gonna tell on you
Tell all the people what you do
Yes I'm gonna tell on the whole round world
Just exactly what it is that you do, yes you do!

I've got to tell how you inspect
Everything I like how you reject
With your law books on your shelf you protect me from myself
And that's exactly how it is, thank you much!

You tax me hard, You take my cash
What is left you tell me make it last
Sit down and sip your beer and be thankful you live here
And that's just exactly what he said

You take away everything I smoke
You say it's bad it'll make me cough and choke
It's cancerous you're bound to die. It's dangerous you might get high
And that's just exactly what he said.

The pope he said the pill's no good
Only do it when you think you should
But we're overpopulated. Then a longer skirt is needed
Yes and that's just exactly what he said

I've got to tell how you made fun
You lock me up if I've been havin' some
You bust into my meetin', on my head you start a beatin'
And that's just exactly what you do
