I Have No Need Of You

So what do you get when mama works in medicine and daddy for the church? Theologically correct, anatomical songs of course.

I’m pretty sure this one has Billy Joe Shaver’s name all over it both in content and character.

Love to hear your thoughts.

I Have No Need Of You
The head can’t say to the belly,
“I have no need of you.”
The belly can’t say to the toe nail,
“I have no need of you.”
The toe nail can’t say to the ear,
“I have no need of you.”
The ear can’t say (no one would listen anyway),
“I have no need of you.”

The big toe can’t say to the elbow,
“I have no need of you.”
The elbow can’t say to the ankle,
“I have no need of you.”
The ankle can’t say to the ear,
“I have no need of you.”
The ear can’t say (no one would listen anyway),
“I have no need of you.”
