Dirty Word

by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

we're gonna talk to the menfolk
yeah, we're gonna say how we feel
we're sure gonna draw them closer
just to make things nice and real

what's the use of a voice
if it can't be heard
we feel connected when
we're uttering words

if you're only thinking it
it isn't real
so why don't they
just tell us how they feel

loving words are the sweetest words
the dearest a woman has ever heard
i don't know why it just is so
some men make talk a dirty word
