SLS ~ Talk

Song Lyric Sunday

Jim Adams hosts our wonderful Song Lyric Sunday and today he gave us a variety of words to use for a prompt. I chose “Something To Talk About,” which is sung by Bonnie Raitt and written by Shirley Eikhard. It was recorded in 1990 for Bonnie’s album Luck of the Draw along with several single versions. The song peaked at #5 on the charts in 1991. Side note, Anne Murray was discouraged from recording the song in the 1980s because her producers didn’t like it. It remains one of Bonnie’s most popular songs.

Something To Talk About


People are talkin’, talkin’ ’bout people
I hear them whisper, you won’t believe it
They think we’re lovers kept under covers
I just ignore it, but they keep saying
We laugh just a little too loud
We stand just a little too close
We stare just a little too long
Maybe they’re seeing something we don’t, darlin’
Let’s give them something to talk about
Let’s give them something to talk about
Let’s give them something to talk about
How about love?
I feel so foolish, I never noticed
You’d act so nervous
Could you be falling for me?
It took a rumor to make me wonder
Now I’m convinced I’m going under
Thinking ’bout you every day
Dreaming ’bout you every night
Hoping that you feel the same way
Now that we know it, let’s really show it, darlin’
Let’s give them something to talk about
A little mystery to figure out
Let’s give them something to talk about
How about love, love, love, love?
Let’s give them something to talk about, baby
A little mystery to figure out
Let’s give them something to talk about
How about love, love, love, love?
