"To Speak Is A Sin" as written by Neil Tennant and Christopher Lowe....
We've been around forever
Look at us now together
Ordering drinks at the bar

Saying hello to men friends
Smiling across a friend's friends
Ordering drinks at the bar

To speak is a sin
You look first, then stare
And once in a while
A smile, if you dare

We'll stand around forever
Regardless of time or weather
Ordering drinks at the bar

Looking for love, and getting
Nothing that's worth regretting
But wondering why we travel so far

To speak is a sin
You look first, then stare
And once in a while
A smile, if you dare

To speak is a sin
You'd better beware
But once in a while
A smile, if you dare

To speak is a sin
You look first, then stare
And once in a while
A smile, if you dare

To speak is a sin
You'd better beware
And once in a while
A smile, if you dare (oh)

    General CommentI think this song describes going to a gay bar back in the day... You don't declare your intentions outright. You caught one anothers' eye and occasionally smiled. it was the ultimate flirtatious high that rarely ended in anything meaningful but the experience was hardly ever regrettable.

    General CommentI don't think it refers to a gay bar "back in the day", but quite the opposite. It refers to a post-AIDS gay bar:

    "Looking for love, and getting
    Nothing that's worth regretting
    But wondering why we travel so far"

    All the rules of the gay bar had changed, and men became a lot more wary.
