verse one: some folks got to speak their mind they got their piece to say some folks walk on anyone who stumbles in their way you don't like the way i talk you don't like where i've been you don't like my manners much and you don't like my friends make sure your eyes are fine when you're checking mine verse two: some folks love to criticize love to know they're right some folks love to tear you down do it day and night mind your business, leave me be 'cause i got things to do I'm well aware of my own faults I need no help from you make sure your eyes are fine when you're checking mine BRIDGE: i don't need you schoolin' me like you're a holy man i been talking with the Man upstairs and i know where i stand SOLO verse three: some folks pick apart your words trap you in your speech some folks grab for any flaw that passes near their reach have a good look at yourself you might have work to do I will take care of little ol' me while you take care of you make sure your eyes are fine when you're checking mine breakdown and outro: your mama shoulda taught you better it shouldn't be for me to tell ya repeat to end
