​Nothing At All

This song is by Third Day and appears…

Third Day 1996 version:
On and on...and on…. and on….and on she goes
Where she stops no one really knows
Everybody's got a problem so it seems and
She ain't afraid of tellin' me, oh but
If you can't say nothing' good, don't say
Nothin' at all

On and on...and on…. and on….and on he goes
Now look who's the one playin' the fool
Criticizing, telling lies, and putting down
Ain't you got nothin' better to do, oh yeah, but
If you can't say nothin' good, don't say
Anything at all

'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
If you can't say nothin' good, don't say
Nothin' at all

On and on...and on…. and on….and on we go
Playin' the game that never ends
I think it's time that we all realize
A broken heart is hard to mend, oh yeah but
If you can't say nothin' good, don't say
Anything at all

'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
Well if you can't say nothin' good, don't say
Nothin' at all

Spoken:
Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

Spoken:
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by men, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

Spoken:
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be so.

Oh yeah
'Cause I know that there are times in life
When we just can't keep it to ourselves
But to want is not to make it right
We've got to tame our tongue
Well if you can't say nothin' good, don't say
Nothin' at all
Don't say nothing' at all
Don't say nothing at all
Don't say nothing at all
