  • I just found out the name of your best friend
    You been talkin' about yourself again
    And no one seems to share your views
    Why doesn't everybody listen to you kid?
    How come you never really seem to get through, is it you?
    Talk about yourself again, you
    Talk about yourself
    Always you, you, you
    Talk about yourself again

    She's on a holiday
    She's got her summer frock on
    Suck on an ice cream
    It's meltin' in the hot sun
    First date's made you pray for more
    I wanted you, wanted
    Everybody knows the score
    I wanted you, wanted
    What are we pretendin' for?
    Let's talk about ourselves on the floor
    Let's talk about yourselves, nothing more I promise
    Talk about ourselves again

    I just found out the name of your best friend
    Talk, talk, talk about yourself again
    Yes I just found out the name of your best friend

    I just found out the name of your best friend
    You been talkin' about yourself again
    And no one seems to share your views
    Why doesn't anybody listen to you kid?
    How come you never really seem to get through, is it you?
    Talk about yourself again, you
    Talk about yourself
    Always you, you, you
    Talk about yourself again, again, again

    I just found out the name of your best friend
    Just found out the name of your best friend
    I just found out the name of your best friend
    I just found out the name of your best friend
    Just found out the name of your best friend
    I just found out the name of your best friend
    Just found out the name of your best friend Writer/s: Roger Charlery, Andrew Cox, Andy Cox, Everett Morton, David Steele, David Wakeling
