about

QUIET written by Malvina Reynolds, 1966

lyrics

I don't know much about much
and what I don't know I don't say
and when I have nothing to say,
 I'm quiet

if there's occasion to holler, I'll try it
I can make noise with the best
but most of the rest of the time I'm quiet



I've made mistakes in the past
things that I blush over yet
but I hardly ever regret
 having been quiet

if I had a T.V. at home

perhaps I would truly enjoy it
I could just leave it alone and it's quiet



I'm not unsociable, no
people are fine in repose
somehow my favorites are those
 who are quiet

Quiet's a wonderful sound
sweeter than oboe or fiddle
someday I'm going to be found in the middle of quiet

sing me a song of the sea

soft as the breath of a breeze
sing me to sleep and then please
 keep quiet
