  • In my neighborhood
    We don't live so good
    The rooms are small
    And the buildings made of wood

    I hear the neighbors talking 'bout you and me
    I guess I heard it all
    'Cause the talk is loud
    And the walls are much too thin

    He don't really love her
    That's what I heard them say
    He sure wasn't thinking of her today
    (He wasn't thinking of her today)

    I saw them in the front yard
    Said the boy in room one four nine
    He was talking to a girl I've never seen before
    And standing there together, oh, they looked so good

    I don't want to hear it anymore
    (I don't want to hear it)
    I don't want to hear it anymore
    (Anymore)
    'Cause the talk just never ends
    And the heartache soon begins
    The talk is so loud
    And the walls are much too thin

    Ain't it sad, said the woman down the hall
    That when a nice girl falls in love
    Ain't it just too bad that she had to fall
    For a boy who doesn't care for her at all?
    (It's so sad)

    I don't want to hear it anymore
    (I don't want to hear it)
    I just can't stand to hear it anymore
    (Anymore)
    'Cause the talk just never ends
    And the heartache soon begins
    The talk is so loud
    And the walls are much too thin

    I don't want to hear it anymore
    (Can't stand to hear it)
    (Don't want to hear it)
    I just can't stand to hear it anymore
    (Don't talk about it)
    (Can't stand to hear it)
    Oh, baby, baby (don't want to hear it)
    I just can't stand
