Americans you abuse your body when you do stuff. You use your body parts in conversation:
When you try to help someone you:
Bend over Backwards , Keep an eye out , Lend a hand and stick your neck out for them
And to give them a chance, you also slip aside. And even if you’re busy, you try to squeeze them in.
But if they don’t listen when you warn them:
No skin off your back. You first give them A slap on the wrest and warn them not to step on your toes
You ask them Bite their tongue, never Bite the Hand that feeds them, And Get their head into the game
After all they should Make no bones about it. You don’t want it to backfire on them.
Then you get mad: Chew them out. Get in their Face and give them the finger.
Finally if you notice they have a chip on their shoulder, you give them the cold shoulder
But if they listen, you encourage them:
Hey Keep your chin up and break a leg.
And even when they make you laugh, You bust a Gut or Crack yourself up
And if you want to joke with them, you’re just pulling their leg.
It’s not like your rolling in dough; you work hard to make ends meet. And you do run out of steam. Because things are not cheap. They cost an arm and a leg. And you do make it By the skin of your teeth.
But on the other hand, if you need help and you need to pick their brain or have them lend you an ear, you cross your fingers that they would help. Well you go on a limb and assume they won’t give you those finger licking good chicken wings.
That makes you sick to your stomach. You toss your cookies and at that point, You are under the weather.
Don’t sweat bullets after all, we all die. Some kick the bucket and others go out with a bang.
Finally it’s all just Tongue and Cheek
