John Mayer - My Stupid Mouth Lyrics




My stupid mouth
Has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see
She was offended
She said "well anyway..."
Just dying for a subject change

Oh, it's another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said, "Think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips
She looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly
An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what just slipped out and what went wrong

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again
How could I forget?
Mama said, "Think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now
Starting now

One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
Just wanna be liked
Just wanna be funny
Looks like the joke's on me
So call me "Captain Backfire"

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me

Oh, I'm never speaking up again
I'm never speaking up again
I'm never speaking up again
Starting now
Starting now

  17. Danny Simion

    This was actually my favorite song from his first album - man, he had a pretty good thing going on with this album. Such laid back melodies and storyline lyrics. :)

  18. Gawain

    Lets all admit it, this is our go to song when we do something fucking stupid

    Joel McNulty

    Shut your stupid mouth.

  28. wenzhiquan

    Tfw when shuffle plays 'Say' right after this song

  29. jennypennypocket

    Well, that's a sure way to save time so you can "weed out the chaff from the wheat".

    Is true. If a couple disagrees on matters of religion or politics (or pretends to agree, but holds the opposite opinion so as to deceive), they can assuredly expect these differences to rapidly increase in weight, before crushing their relationship like the bones of Salem witch trial victim, Giles Corey, waa crushed under the stones that pressed him to death

    I don't know why I'm writing. I'm half sleeping.

  30. Vitor Ribeiro

    This song is the story of my life. Me and my stupid mouth.

  40. Soupy Chang

    Dude... this takes me back. Playing my Dreamcast, thinking about girls in my high school, and fumbling around on my guitar (I eventually got pretty good). Damn how time flies.

  41. Roedor

    I love the intricate and poetic way he says the most simple things in life

  48. G in NY

    I think you could pair this song with "King of Anything" by Sara Bareilles and it'd actually make sense.

  49. Berlin Mutapcic Mutapcic

    Jonn Mayer is my favorite band

  50. WontonSoupOfficial

    God, this song speaks to me right now in a different sense... told a girl I loved her, but I regret it, if I could have preserved the friendship and time we had left... I'm trying act like nothing happened but I can tell things aren't the same anymore

  51. Mr. Speedy

    For a long time I thought he said "I said to my chicken" instead of "I said too much again" lol

  52. Asia C

    *Can someone make a loop in which the sing doesn't end, it just goes back to "...one more thing,"*

    Braeden Brown

    Asia C Level And 😂😂 omg yes

  53. Will Robbins

    Aww..the way she feels about me's changed"..."I'm never speaking up again, it only hurts me"...

    Andres Esqueda

  54. Scott Ogle

  55. Pedro Poyares

    My stupid mouth has got me in trouble;
    I said too much again
    To a date over dinner yesterday.

    She said, "Well, anyway..."
    I'm just dying for a subject change.

    How could I forget?
    Mama said, "Think before speaking."

    We bit our lips,
    She looked out the window,
    Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper.
    I played a quick game of chess
    With a salt and pepper shaker.

    And I can see clearly
    An indelible line was drawn
    Between what was good,
    What just slipped out
    And what went wrong.

    Oh, the way she feels about me's changed.

  67. PeH 96

    Memories from being a kid in the early 2000s. After a day of playing with my neighborhood friends Id come home for dinner and my mom would usually have this playing. Good times...

    degas

    Good mom ;)

    Les Lawrence

    Mgo BLUE I think I'd like your mom. ;) And, I thought kids stopped playing outside in the early 90's??? I'm a child of the 80s

    LilyCelebi

    This was a driving song from my mom before double-digit ages.... :,)

    Jacob

    I'm jealous of that tbh

    Eric Wilson

    I'd always hear this on car rides. I liked it back then, got into crazy heavy music since, and I appreciate this much more now 🙂

  68. Kelly Williams

    One more thing....


    yeah dude. yeah.

  69. kirk von Nordstrom

    Mr. Mayer has got chops young'uns. He's Not a personality. He's a major R & B and R & R star.

    GOT IT?

    I'm 61 yrs old and I've heard a few guitarists in my life, like Harrison, Clapton, King's of R & B, Robert Johnson, Page, Krieger, Hendrix, Mick Taylor, Jimmy Page, Slash, CLAPTON, BB King, Freddie King & Albert King.

    HAVE U MORONS???????

    Lucas Springfield

    +kirk johnwiggle Clapton, who is one of the best on that list has said himself that John Mayer is a master of the guitar. You obviously have NO IDEA about guitar, and you only LISTEN to guitarists. If you knew anything about anything you'd know how incredibly talented John Mayer is. You think you're cool because you've listened to good artists, when in reality you're just the same as the rest of us. You're not special.

    WackyEwan

    +Ayman Elbachiri 👍

    LaxBro11796

    +Ayman Elbachiri youre an idiot l..do you know what chops means??

  70. Zachary Cramer

    i listen to this song when i say something stupid

    That’s stupid.

  71. Xbox Sa

    minha musica!!

  72. hocine kourdourli

    This song is beautiful

  73. jmforlife83

    This song is so fucking good. Everyone knows john mayer is a musical genius. Melodically and lyrically. The lyrics in this song are incredible. They rhythm and fit perfectly with the song. Only years later do i realize how great lyrically this song really is. anyone who is a songwriter would realize it too. " I mean who do you not hear lyrics like " ohhh.. its another social causality, score one more more me" or the way she feels about me's changed, thanks for playing, try again. Honestly all the lyrics are spot on

    zerosoma33

    Yes. All of this. A literal perfect songwriting accomplishment.

    Mazin

    lol love the sarcasm in this comment that I bet went over 80% of youtube! Amy Wright sarah?

    Landon Cooper

    @Mazin If he's being sarcastic, he's doing a bad job.

  75. Daryl Parkin

    I haven't heard this song in years. A lot has changed, but I still have a stupid mouth.

    Asia C

    Daryl Parkin ... "think before speaking." That helps me with my stupid mouth sometimes =/

    The Green Pill Mindset

    Back when this album came out, having a stupid mouth could stop you from becoming President! Can you imagine??

  76. OhMyBooda

    My mouth got me in trouble too today with this girl. I'm telling you guys, always gotta be careful with girls especially bitches. Never argue with them. Know in advance who to spend your energy with, because its precious and you dont want to waste it.

    OhMyBooda

    @Caio Lins
    Why is it my fault!! hehehe

    Mariano Plaza

    Then I say, don't mark them as "bitches" listen then to Daughters song...

    Chany

    Saying your mouth got you in trouble implies that you said something you shouldn't have, in which case, it's really no one but your own's fault.

    OhMyBooda

    @Chany Msp
    Well some people are toxic and can over react over something which truly shouldnt be the case. These people who love drama will use any opportunity to have a fight.

    Chany

    Which is why you should just avoid them. Give them a second thought and they're going to assume they have some sort of hold on you.

  77. Brenda Gilsrud

    Listening to it for my son's drumming lesson -- he is listening for the cymbal changes :-D

  78. Breana C

    This song is the story of my life!!!! 🙌but hey, its MY STUPID MOUTH...
