This song is by Malvina Reynolds and appears on the compilation album Malvina Reynolds Sings the Truth (1967).

I don't know much about much,
And what I don't know I don't say,
And when I have nothing to say,
I'm quiet.

When there's occasion to holler, I'll buy it.
I can make noise with the best.
But most of the rest of the time I'm quiet.

I've made mistakes in the past,
Things that I blush over yet,
But I hardly ever regret
Having been quiet.

I have a TV at home
And I do truly enjoy it.
I can just leave it alone
And it's quiet.

I'm not unsociable, no,
People are fine in repose;
Somehow my favorites are those
Who are quiet.

Quiet's a wonderful sound,
Sweeter than oboe or fiddle,
Someday I'm going to be found in the middle
Of quiet.

Sing me a song of the sea
Soft as the breath of a breeze,
Sing me to sleep and then please
Keep quiet.
