They like to chat about the dresses they will wear tonight

F#m7 B7-9 Em7 F#m7 GM7 A9
They chew the fat about their tresses and the neighbor's fight;

Dm7 Gm7 E7-5-9 Em7 A7-9
Inconsequential things that men don't really care to know

F#m7 B7-9 F#m7 Gm7 F#m7 B7
Become essential things that women find so ap-pro-pos --

Bm7 E9 Em9 Gm7
But that's a dame, they're all the same it's just a game they call it

F#m7 Bm7 Em7 A9
Girl talk, girl talk



DM7 G#7 GM7 Em7 A7-9
They all meow about the ups and downs of all their friends,

F#m7 B7-9 Em7 F#m7 GM7 A9
The who, the how, the why -- they dish the dirt, it never ends.

Dm7 Gm7 E7-5-9 Em7 A7-9
The weaker sex, the "speaker" sex we mortal males behold

F#m7 B7-9 F#m7 Gm7 F#m7 B7
But though we joke, we wouldn't trade you for a ton of gold.



First time:


Bm7 E9 Em9 Gm7
So baby stay and gab away, but hear me say that after

F#m7 Bm7 Em7 A7-9 D F#m7 G Gm7 A9sus4 D9
Girl talk, talk to me.

Dm7 E9 GM7 Gm7
So baby stay, and gab away, but hear me say

F#m7 Bm9 Em7 Edim D B7 Em7 A9 A7
That after girl talk, talk to me.



Last time:

Bm7 E9 Em9 Gm7
It's all been planned, so take my hand; please understand

F#m7 Bm9 Em7 Edim D
The sweetest girl talk talks of me.
