Edie Brickell & New Bohemians: “Horse’s Mouth” (2021)

A simple, crisply-put message on the topic of gossip.

Well, it’s been going on long as I can remember
Somebody talking ’bout ol’ so and so and
Next thing you know, it gets repeated like it’s gospel
When it got started by someone who does not know

If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass
Alright

If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass

It’s a temptation when I hear a story like that
I have to meditate to keep my mouth shut
And it’s like wrestling a bear to keep it quiet
I want to run and jump and tell somebody but

If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass
Alright

There’s a dog on the bed
Getting caught in the act
Spider weaving a web
For a snake in the grass

If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass
Alright

If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass
If you don’t hear it from the horse’s mouth
You’re hearing it from a horse’s ass
You’re hearing it
From a horse’s ass
