I never learned my bible verses like the way my Mama said, but there was one lasting lesson that she taught / she'd tell me, "Charlotte, don't go sinning before the eyes of God and don't distract the boys by showing what you got" / and as long as I remember that's the way they spoke of me, like I was doing something wrong by showing up / like I had something so dark in me my walk ensnared them all, and I had to learn to try to fend them off And then the men in town / say I have it too good / but they look at me / like I was firewood Don't tell me to smile / 'cause I'll smile when I damn well please / it's all pitchforks and fire / as far as my eyes can see / and I can hear them singing / "Burn the witch, burn the witch" / I can hear them singing / "Burn the witch, burn the witch" So I never walk these streets alone for fear they'll get to me, I run in packs and I never get too drunk / tomorrow if the mob comes and drowns me in the lake I bet they'll ask if I was wearing swimming trunks You can hold me down / till my last breath escapes / but when the stone runs out / I'll still cry out, "more weight" Don't tell me to smile / 'cause I'll smile when I damn well please / it's all pitchforks and fire / as far as my eyes can see / and I can hear them singing / "Burn the witch, burn the witch" / I can hear them singing / "Burn the witch, burn the witch" / I can hear them singing / "Don't stand up" / "You already have too much" / "Some lose and some win" / "And that's the way it's always been" / So don't tell me to smile
