Song Description

Often the things someone says or does raise undesirable feelings. We all get angry, children and adults alike. By pointing out that anger is only a feeing, one that is strong but passing, the song focuses on our common ground and empathizes with the one who is angry as well as the one who patiently waits out the anger of another.

Story Behind the Song

Written by a Buddhist leaning father of three. The big hot lump of coal is paraphrased directly from the Dharma, Buddha's teaching.


You're angry about the little thing I said
You're angry, oh your face is really red
You're angry, so much more than just upset
Each time I say you're angry the angrier you get.

Things don't always go according to the plan.
We don't always get our way.
I've gotten angry too and so I understand
How it is you're feeling in the moment here today.

You're angry about the little thing I did
You're angry, who're you trying to kid
"I'm angry" I'm gonna hear you shout.
Sometimes when you're angry you just gotta let it out.

Anger is a difficult feelling to control.
Seems that everyone has a turn
At threatening another with this big hot lump of coal.
Makes you wonder who it is that's getting burned.

You're angry.
Wish I knew what to say.
You're angry. Can't we go out and play.
Let's not be angry, I'd much rather be your friend.
So if you're angry I'll just wait until your anger ends.
