Small Talk Stinks

This song is by Bauhaus and appears on the album In the Flat Field (1980).

Small talk stinks
Small talk stinks
Small talk stinks
Small talk stinks

See the young man in his new gown
Talking up to his bouffant drag
He says he loves you with flowers
Something that he's never had
A sentence should be like a serpent
Quick with a sting in its tail
String me a line that has meaning and depth
There's no small talk with walky talkies
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)
I said it stinks (small talk stinks)
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)

There's no idle gossip in braille
Taking combs three times an day
Twice an hour
Indentikit cute lips from wall to wall
Standing by [...]
See the young man in his new gown
Talking up to his bouffant drag
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)
I said it stinks (small talk stinks)
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)
Small talk stinks (small talk stinks)
