  • Ten cents a dance
    It's the only price to pay
    Why give 'em more
    When it's only love for sale?

    Adam and Eve
    It's the oldest game in town
    Just a one way street
    To a faded magazine

    Kiss and tell
    Money talks it never lies
    Kiss and tell
    Give and take eye for an eye

    Fever the heat of the night
    Dreamer stealer of sighs
    One public face
    In a private limousine

    Flash photograph
    It's the only light you see
    No secret life
    There's no secret you can steel

    Your lips are moving
    But I will never know
    What they mean
    Kiss and tell

    Money talks and love it burns
    Kiss and tell
    Give and take we live and learn
    Kiss and tell

    We never lie
    Eye foe an eye
    Blood on a nail
    Kiss me again Writer/s: GRAHAM GOULDMAN
