Got to Learn to Emote

Got to learn to express your anger
At the top of your throat
Mustn’t ever repress your anger
Got to learn to emote
Let’s pretend that your big fat ass
Has just been gored by a goat
Don’t be crying alack, alas
Got to learn to emote
Got to learn to unleash your feelings
Let me give you the note
If you keep eating quiche, your feelings
Then begin to emote
Women always got pissed if I’d
Put on too thick of a coat
Other men might be mystified
But me, I learned to emote
Time for peace and a time for war is
What the prophet once wrote
One more time that you must explore is
Now’s the time to emote
Maybe staying above the fray
Would fly if life were a float
Though you don’t have to love the fray
You’ve got to learn to emote

Speak Your Mind
