If you want to talk tough you're going to get what's coming Trash talk Yeah, I'm talking to you What, did you have a major breakthrough? How long did it take you to figure it out? You're like my cousin Fred, not the sharpest tool in the shed Further from the best, closest to the worst Does it make your blood boil? That's my intent you see You best not mess with me and my trash talk Hey you! You must think you're so funny Well, wake up call... you're not Yeah, roses are red, violets are blue I have five fingers and the third one's for you I bet your brain feels as good as new Seeing as you never use it Trash talk You better watch what you do Heed what we say Trash talk (X4) It's not that hard to behave yourself Don't want to get caught in the crossfire Look out honey, you're going to get caught in the crossfire You better look out honey, you're going to get caught in the crossfire All the trash talk, going to get caught in the crossfire All the trash talk, going to get caught in the crossfire I'm gonna get some knuckle tattoos credits

Abigail's got attitude under her muzzle Lunging and pulling and sniffing for trouble Sad or mad or happy happy yay I just never really know what she's trying to say What she's trying to say What she's trying to say She's got a confrontational side Always got her back up, preparing for a fight Past unknown and stubborn all the time It's hard to really tell what's going on in her mind What's going on in her mind What's going on in her mind I think I know what's best for you, I know (X8) Llittle dog of mine is bouncing off the walls Reliably ignoring all our commands and our calls Emoting full-time from her manus to her pes But I still don't really know what Abigail says What Abigail says What Abigail says
