They want to know what speech is

by Frank Riccobono

I gotta take a little time, a little time to write my ballot
I better write between the lines, and on the back if they'll allow it

Now, my comments are sublime, I'm like an artist with his palette
Through my words I'll make you shine, take my advice and don't you doubt it

All this round, I've been watching them speak
Did not stop to write a single critique
Must start now, got too much to say, to fill this empty page.

They want to know what speech is, my comments will show them
They want to feel what speech is, I know I can show them

I thought I'd take a little time, a little time right after round three
But I've got nowhere left to hide, it seems the tabroom finally found me

All this round, I've been watching them speak
Did not stop to write a single critique
Must start now, got too much to say, to fill this empty page.

They want to know what speech is, my comments will show them
They want to feel what speech is, I know I can show them

Etc.
