|FIGURES OF SPEECH|
It seems we get our exercise without moving at all Running off at the mouth and being driven up the wall. Jogging our memory, beating about the bush Back stabbing - infighting, we shove and we push.
Flying off the handle, hitting the roof Breaking the rules, twisting the truth. Blowing our trumpet, pushing our luck Loosing our grip and passing the buck.
Bending over backwards, breaking with convention Grasping at straws, Snapping to attention Changing our minds to keep up with the times Heading nowhere, ignoring the signs.
Nose to the grindstone, shoulder to the wheel Hand to the plough, digging your heal; Lending an ear, thumbing the nose Pulling a leg, striking a pose.
Words work overtime going through the motions Fits of verbal fitness betraying our emotions. Figures of speech create confusion Jumping to conclusions.
Running around in circles with our feet in our mouth Blimey what a north and south! A marathon of words assault the head It must have been something we said. The sound slips from our lips any way we choose It's our language after all, so why not abuse it?
