Every Word You Say (Is Written Down)

This song is by Peter Sarstedt and appears on the compilation album The Story Of Pop (1976).

Every word you say is a written down, somewhere
Every word you say is a written down

Written for the children
To learn from in school,
Written for the children
To learn from their fathers

Every word you say is a written down
Every word you say is a written down

Everyone you meet
Is an innocent, somewhere
Oh everyone you meet
Is an innocent

Careful what you say to the child
Who's emerging
Careful what you say to the child
In your anger

Every word you say is written down
Every word you say is a written down

Every word you say is carved in flesh and blood
Every word you say is carved in bone

Say it to the sky
Say it to the misty mountain
Say it to the east
Say it to the westward wind

Every word you say is written down
Oh every word you say is a written down

Every word you learn
Is a space filled up, inside
Yeah every word you learn
Is a space filled up

Spoken by the man
Who think that words the answer
Spoken by the sick
Who place their trust in status

Every word you say is a vanity
Every word you say is a vanity

Oh every word you say is a written down. somewhere
Oh every word you say is a written down

Written for the children
To learn from in school,
Written for the children
To learn from their fathers

Every word you say is a written down
I said every word you say is a written down

Oh every word you say is a written down
Every word you say is a written down
Every word you say is a written down
