yet another edit: dead easy

Somehow I couldn't get accustomed to the last two lines of the bridge so I rewrote them yet again:

I admit I have a loose tongue
it is true, I cannot keep mum
no one who shows some sympathy
instead they all just turn against me

Two people argued that the line "if you don't give it a rest" in the chorus doesn't quite match with the rest of the lyrics: "... And now he's saying Give it a rest?". As the word "you" in the chorus is used in its generic sense ("one") all through and I eliminated an ambiguity in the rest of the text ("your camel's back") I think it should be clear that 'I' am actually referring to 'myself': you (one) can get into a mess if you (one) don't give it (the joking, pranking, or using provocative language) a rest. The 'you' would be 'me' ;-)

dead easy
to make a fool of yourself
dead easy
to get into a mess
dead easy
if you don't give it some thought
dead easy
if you don't give it a rest
