Careless talk
Jealous talk
Everybody's telling lies
Why can't people

I don't believe what they say
They say you've been putting me down
They won't leave us alone
Ever since you came around
Careless talk
Jealous talk

Every terrible word
All of the intimate things

In a conversation shared
There are some things they will never hear

Going around on the streets
I know how bad it can be
Let them stand where they fall
All that talking won't make a difference to me
