Lyrics
Small talk
Small talk

Small talk, ooh we're tired of prophecying
We heard the word was good but it's stupefying
Small talk, get up and do some death defying
Small talk

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby

Small talk

Small talk, oh, baby it's so inconsequential
Everybody heard enough about your big potential
Small talk, oh, no information give
Small talk

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby

Small talk, oh, you're such a little socialite
We heard your chit-chat, now you get it up and get it right
Small talk, oh, show us what you're made of baby
Small talk

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby

I heard a whisper
That careless talk costs more than you bargained for
In seventh heaven
If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing badly baby
