Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version


 

Words by
Keith Reid

Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should check yourself out
Your past is wide open to question
Your future is clouded in doubt
Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should stand back and think
Are you gonna be making a difference
Or are you gonna be making a stink

Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should stand back and ask
Are you really up to the challenge
Do you feel youíre facing the task
Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should know what it means
Have you always been mister blameless
Have you always kept your hands clean

Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should see if itís wise
Would you pass a vigorous inspection
Can you not be cut down to size
Before you go pointing the finger
Maybe you should stand back and think
Are you gonna be making a difference
Or are you gonna be making a stink
