How long can a bell ring?
Just as long as it knows its tone
Just as long as it knows its tone
I'm here to tell you that's how long
That a fool can go wrong

How long can a bird sing?
Just as long as it knows its song
(Spoken): You gotta know your song

How long can a bird sing?
Just as long as it knows its song
See I'm here to tell you that's how long
That a fool can go wrong

I learned my lessons from people
You know in all walks of life
You know in all walks of life
I know if a person mistreats you once they're
Bound to misuse you twice

(That's why I said) how long can a bell ring?
Just as long as it knows its song
Just as long as it knows its song
I'm here to tell you that's how long
