  • There are some things you can't cover up
    With lipstick and powder
    Thought I heard you mention my name
    Can't you talk any louder?

    Don't come any closer
    Don't come any nearer
    My vision of you
    Can't come any clearer
    Oh I just want to hear girls talk

    Got a loaded imagination
    Bein' fired by girls talk
    It's a more or less situation
    Inspired by girls talk

    But I can't say
    The words you want to hear
    I suppose you're gonna have to
    Play it by ear, right here

    And now, girls talk
    And they want to know how girls talk
    And they say it's not allowed, girls talk
    If they say that it's so
    Don't they think that I'd know by now?

    Got the word up on everyone's lipstick
    That you're getting faded
    You may not be an old-fashioned girl
    But you're gonna get dated

    "Was it really murder?"
    "Were you just pretending?"
    "Lately I've heard..."
    "You are the living end"

    Girls talk
    And they want to know how girls talk
    And they say it's not allowed, girls talk
    And they think they know how girls talk
    If they say that it's so
    Don't they think that I'd now by now?

    But I can't say
    The words you want to hear
    I suppose you're gonna have to
    Play it by ear, I hear

    There are some things you can't cover up
    With lipstick and powder
    But I heard you mention my name
    Can't you talk any louder?

    Don't come any closer
    Don't come any nearer
    My vision of you
    Can't come any clearer Writer/s: ELVIS COSTELLO
