Lyrics

Skeletons in your closet Itchin to come outside Messin' with your conscience In a way your face can't hide Oh things are gettin' real funky Down at the old corral And it's not the skunks that are stinkin' It's the stinkin' lies you tell What did your mama tell you about lies She said it wasn't polite to tell a white one What did your daddy tell you about lies He said one white one turns into a black one So, it's gettin' ready to blow It's gettin' ready to show Somebody shot off at the mouth and Were gettin' ready to know It's gettin' ready to drop It's gettin' ready to shock Somebody done turned up the heater Ana it's gettin' ready to pop Crevices in your pantry Now what do we have in here Havin' a daytime nightmare Has always been your biggest fear Oh things are gettin' real crucial Up the old wazoo Yet you cry, why am I the victim? When the culprits y-o-u What did your mama tell you about lies She said it wasn't polite to tell a white one What did your daddy tell you about lies He said one white one turns into a black one So, it's gettin' ready to blow It's gettin' ready to show Somebody shot off at the mouth and Were gettin' ready to know It's gettin' ready to drop It's gettin' ready to shock Somebody done turned up the heater Ana it's gettin' ready to pop It's gettin' ready to seep You're gettin' ready to freak Somebody done picked up the talk box Were gettin' ready to speak It's gettin' ready to jive You're gettin' ready to gel Somebody done gone let the lid off Were gettin' ready to smell

They're gettin' ready to deal You're gettin' ready to I'll Somebody done just dropped the big dime And they're gettin' ready to squeal It's gettin' ready to turn Were gettin' ready to learn Somebody done fired up the brimstone And you're gettin' ready to burn It's gettin' ready to shake You're gettin' ready to ache Somebody done snitched to the news crew And it's gettin' ready to break You're gettin' ready to lie They're gettin' ready to spy Somebody's been put on the hot seat And you're gettin' ready to fry
