Sticks and Stones

I know that they could break my bones
But I prefer your sticks and stones
For bruises on the skin will heal
But those on my heart I shall always feel

Even though they'll break my bones
Please just throw your sticks and stones
Because the words you throw hurt my heart
And threaten to tear it all apart

I can take some broken bones
So go ahead with the sticks and stones
But I can't take the words you throw
My heart can't suffer another blow

So please try just to break my bones
With your awful sticks and stones
Hurts on the outside I can neglect
But hurts on my heart I shall always detect
