"Girls Talk" as written by and Elvis Costello....
There are some things you can't cover up
With lipstick and powder
Thought I heard you mention my name
Can't you talk any louder?

Don't come any closer
Don't come any nearer
My vision of you
Can't come any clearer
Oh I just want to hear girls talk

Got a loaded imagination
Bein' fired by girls talk
It's a more or less situation
Inspired by girls talk

But I can't say
The words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna have to
Play it by ear, right here

And now, girls talk
And they want to know how girls talk
And they say it's not allowed, girls talk
If they say that it's so
Don't they think that I'd know by now?

Got the word up on everyone's lipstick
That you're getting faded
You may not be an old-fashioned girl
But you're gonna get dated

"Was it really murder?"
"Were you just pretending?"
"Lately I've heard..."
"You are the living end"

Girls talk
And they want to know how girls talk
And they say it's not allowed, girls talk
And they think they know how girls talk
If they say that it's so
Don't they think that I'd now by now?

But I can't say
The words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna have to
Play it by ear, I hear

There are some things you can't cover up
With lipstick and powder
But I heard you mention my name
Can't you talk any louder?

Don't come any closer
Don't come any nearer
My vision of you
Can't come any clearer
