"Rumors" as written by Robert James Kean, Ian Gordon Curnow and Phil Harding....
How do rumors get started, they're started by the jealous people and
They get mad seein' somethin' they had and somebody else is holdin'
Tell me that temptation is very hard to resist
But these wicked women, ooh, they just persist
Maybe you think it's cute, but girl, I'm not impressed
I tell you one time only with my business please don't mess

Look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away from
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door

Hear the one about Tina, some say she's much too loose
That came straight from a guy who claims he's tastin' her juice
Hear the one about Michael, some say he must be gay
I try to argue, but they said if he was straight he wouldn't move that way
Hear the one about Susan, some say she's just a tease
In a camisole she's six feet tall, she'll knock you to you knees

Will you look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away from
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door

I can't go no place without somebody pointin' a finger
I can't show my face â??cause when it comes to rumors I'm a dead ringer
It seems from rumors I just can't get away
I bet there'll even be rumors floatin' around on Judgment Day
I'll think I'll write my congressman and tell him to pass a bill
For the next time they catch somebody startin' rumors, shoot to kill

Will you look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away from
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door

What's mine is mine, I ain't got time for rumors in my life
I'm a man who thinks, not a man who drinks, so please let me live my life
What's mine is mine, I ain't got time for rumors in my life
I'm a man who thinks, not a man who drinks, so please let me live my life
What's mine is mine, I ain't got time for rumors in my life
I'm a man who thinks, not a man who drinks, so please let me live my life

Will you look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away from
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door

Look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day
I just need some time, some time to get away from
From all these rumors, I can't take it no more
My best friend said there's one out now about me and the girl next door

Stop (Stop) spreadin' those rumors around
Stop (Stop) spreadin' the lies
Stop (Stop) spreadin' those rumors around
Stop (Stop) spreadin' the lies

Stop (Stop) spreadin' those rumors around
Stop (Stop) spreadin' the lies
Stop (Stop) spreadin' those rumors around
Stop (Stop) spreadin' the lies

Stop (Stop) spreadin' those rumors around
Stop (Stop) spreadin' the lies

    General CommentOne of those forgotten hits that you hear years later and you download the song and play it several times every day for a month.

    This song reminds me of the rumors that go around during your middle and high school years. Everyone spends so much time trying to convince as many as they can that the rumors aren't true. It's all a waste of time but rumors can completely devastate some people. I've forgotten most of them that were directed to myself and most others. However, there's one rumor I always think about when I hear this song.

    General Commentvery good song, kinda has a cheesy meaning but with the rumors all over internet, the effects are much worse.
