"Talkin' Smooth" as written by and Kate Elizabeth Voegele....
How many times have you used that line?
Did you replace the last two dozen names with mine?

Is 'I love you baby,' second nature by now?
'Cause it sounds awful rehearsed
When the words leave your mouth

I don't know why but it seems
That I'm not the first to have heard this speech
Is this a routine you just repeat?
'Cause I don't mean to presume
That you don't love me like you say you do
But, you're gonna have to prove that you're true
And you're not just talkin' smooth

Your performance deserves an academy award
And it's a double edged sword, 'cause I sure feel adored

But just between us I'd rather see you slip up
Don't you know that it's those
Less than perfect words I can't get enough of

Maybe I'm outta my head
But I'm telling you baby that I've been misled
So if the record's off well could you get it set?
I don't mean to presume
That you don't love me like you say you do
But, you're gonna have to prove that you're true
And you're not just talkin' smooth

Well, you've proven your charm is a crime
Oh, and oh, why don't you see
The harm in relying on this disguise
You're losing me with every little wink of the eye

The end of my rope is slipping out of my hold
So if you're clever you'd better do some damage control

I don't know why but it seems
You've made a game of making a fool outta me
And I did not sign up to be
Your tongue-in-cheek, hey oh, yeah

I don't mean to presume
That you don't love me like you say you do
But, you're gonna have to prove that you're true
And you're not just talkin' smooth
Oh, can you prove you're not just talkin' smooth

    General CommentThese lyrics are soooo wrong!!!!!!

    How many times have you used that line?
    Did you replace the last 2 dozen names with mine?
    Is I love you baby, second nature by now?
    Oh 'cause it sounds awful rehearsed when the words leave your mouth
    Yeah well

    I don't know why but it seems that I'm not the first to have heard this speech
    Is this a routine just repeat oh 'cause

    I don't mean to presume that you don't love me like you say you do
    But you're gonna have to prove that you're true, you're not just talking smooth
    Ohh

    You're performance deserves an academy award yeah
    And it's a double edged sword cuz I should feel adored mmm
    Well just between us I'd rather see you slip up yeah
    Oh don't you know that it's those less than perfect words I can't get enough of
    Ohh Yeah well

    Maybe I'm out on my head but I'm telling you baby that I've been misled
    So if the records off well could you get it sent here

    I don't mean to presume that you don't love me like you say you do
    But you're gonna have to prove that you're true, you're not just talking smooth

    Well you prove that your charm is a crime
    Why don't you see the hurt in relying in this disguise?
    You're losing with every wink of your eye

    The end of my rope is slipping out of my hold
    Yeah so if you're clever you better do some damage control

    I don't know why but it seems you made a game to make a fool out of me
    And I did not sign up to be your tongue in cheek

    I don't mean to presume that you don't love me like you say you do
    But you're gonna have to prove that you're true, you're not just talking smooth
    Ohh
    Can you prove that you're not just talking smooth?

    General CommentI always thought it said "So if the records off, well can you get it said?" Like, how in journalism they say "off the record".... idk. That's just what I heard.

    Anyways, it's just about wanting a guy to prove he's not just a player or a smooth talker... she wants to know if his feelings are real
