Street talk has it
You've been down town bragging
That you've made a fool of me
Making a lot of noise
Telling all the boys that I'm easy

Take a long walk, baby
Cause stabbing this lady in the back
When she ain't there
I ain't gonna take it
Cause smearing my name ain't fair

I guess I oughta know when I turned you down
What kinda stories you'd be spreading around
But anyone who knows me
Knows it ain't true
The dirt you've been throwing is all over you

Street talk has it
You've been down town bragging
That you've made a fool of me
Making a lot of noise
Telling all the boys that I'm easy

Take a long walk, baby
Cause stabbing this lady in the back
When she ain't there
I ain't gonna take it
Cause smearing my name ain't fair

But babe there's something
I just can't understand
How telling lies can make you feel like a man?
But anyone who knows me
Knows it ain't true
The dirt you've been throwing is all over you

Street talk has it
You've been down town bragging
That you've made a fool of me
Making a lot of noise
Telling all the boys that I'm easy

Take a long walk, baby
Cause stabbing this lady in the back
When she ain't there
I ain't gonna take it
Cause smearing my name ain't fair
