  • My brother got out of rehab
    Right around Christmas time
    Mama made a turkey
    Daddy was worried he was gonna have to break up a fight

    Everybody was walking on eggshells
    Drinking eggnog instead of beer
    We were holdin' our tongues, scratchin' our heads
    Wonderin' how the hell we got to here

    Hush, hush, don't you dare say a word
    Hush, hush, don't you know the truth hurts
    Hush, hush, when push comes to shove it's best to keep it hush, hush

    We were sitting around the dinner table
    And we were eating our pumpkin pie
    While the sugar-coated pretty little secret was eating everybody alive

    Well daddy's reading propaganda
    And he's talking 'bout the end of days
    Well cheers to the vodka mama's been sneakin'
    Let's all gather 'round and pray

    Hush, hush, don't you dare say a word
    Hush, hush, don't you know the truth hurts
    Hush, hush, when push comes to shove it's best to keep it hush, hush

    So I snuck out behind the red barn
    And I took myself a toke
    Since everybody here hates everybody here
    Hell I might as well be the joke

    I'm gonna dance up on the table
    Singing "This Little Light of Mine"
    God gave it to me, what good's it gonna do me
    If I don't, by God, let it shine

    Hush, hush, don't you dare say a word
    Hush, hush, don't you know the truth hurts
    Hush, hush, when push comes to shove it's best to keep it hush, hush

    Hide your tattoo, put on your Sunday best,
    Pretend you're not a mess, be the happy family in the front pew

    Hush, hush, don't you dare say a word
    Hush, hush, don't you know the truth hurts
    Hush, hush, when push comes to shove it's best to keep it hush, hush

    Hush, hush, don't you dare say a word
    Hush, hush, don't you know the truth hurts
    Hush, hush, when push comes to shove it's best to keep it hush, hush Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
