"STAY SWEET"

When I was just a young boy,
I want to let you know,
I had a nasty temper that
I could not control.
Someone would get me riled up
With something that they said.
My heart would pound like thunder
As my face was turnin' red.
Then I'd think about what my Mama would say.
She said,

Chorus
Stay sweet, stay sweet,
Before you say something that you shouldn't repeat.
Don't get upset,
Before you do somethin' that you're gonna regret.
It ain't weak to stay meek.
You'll see by turnin' the other cheek it
Takes a mighty man in his soul to stay sweet.

One day I was playing
And along came one of the boys.
I know it was just an accident,
But he stepped on one of my toys.
My heart pounded like thunder,
My face was turnin' red.
I was just about to blow my top
When I remembered what my Mama said.
She said,

[Repeat Chorus]

Musical Interlude:
Stay sweet, remember! -That's better!

Well, it may not be that easy,
It's gonna take all that you've got
To try to be kind and gentle
When your temper's inclined to be hot.
So if you quench that burnin' anger
With a cool stream of love,
You'll make more friends and you'll understand
What my Mama was thinkin' of
When she used to say these words to me,

[Repeat Chorus]

It takes a mighty big man in his soul
To stay sweet.

[Stay sweet!] Simmer down! [Don't get upset!]
Don't get upset! [Stay sweet, don't get upset!]
Cool your jets! [Stay sweet!] You won't regret it!
