Don't know this one, but perhaps sending the request to the top of the list again may bring it to the attention of someone who's not seen it yet.

A search at AMG finds 50 recordings of at least 10 different songs called "Keep It to Yourself." Memphis Minnie, Lonnie Johnson, Bessie Smith, Sonny Boy Williamson, and several others all recorded songs called "Keep It to Yourself."

Amy Rigby isn't listed there, but CDNOW says that she wrote the song herself, along with Bill DeMain, so apparently her song is different from all the others. Alas, CDNOW doesn't have a sound sample.

Amy Rigby's own web site gives lyrics for several of her songs, but not this one. Maybe if you'd email her a request, they'd post the lyrics or email them to you.

I found a quote at http://www.tennessean.com/entertainment/music/archives/02/05/17781492.shtml

    The anthology's only new song is Keep It To Yourself, a co-write with Bill DeMain in which a lovers' conversation about an old boyfriend ("You say you'd like to kill the man who broke my heart") takes an unexpected turn ("Me, I'm trying so hard to forgive/ But here's his address, here's his picture/ Here's the make and model of his car").

KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
Amy Rigby, Bill DeMain

You say you'd like to kill the man who broke my heart.
You don't think he should be allowed to live.
You say you want to shoot the dude who screwed me up.
Me, I'm trying so hard to forgive.

But here's his address.
Here's his picture.
Here's the make and model of his car.
He works until 4:30.
Then he hangs out at the topless bar
With a girl on each arm.
If he should come to harm,
Just keep it to yourself.

Remember how he cheated and he lied to me.
You told me that it makes you lose your head.
I see they're pouring concrete on Route 33.
I don't believe you'd do those things you said.

But here's his address.
Here's his picture.
Here's his pager number and his cell.
He works out at the health club.
And he really likes to watch himself
Flexing in the mirror.
If he should disappear,
Just keep it to yourself.

I like the way that you take care of me.
I like the way you say that you'll take care of things.
Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba.
Ba, ba, ba, ba.

So here's his address.
Here's his picture.
Here's the make and model of his car.
He works until 4:30.
Then he hangs out at the topless bar
With a girl on each arm.
If he should buy the farm,
Just keep it to yourself.
Just keep it to yourself."
