The Rumor

This song is by Little River Band and appears on the album First Under the Wire (1979) and on the album Backstage Pass (1980).

It all started out by a word of mouth
Moving fast on a whim
It went all through the suburds
The north and south
And when it finally got back to him

It was larger than life
It was older than time
It was all that you need
All of a sudden we changed overnight
But the people couldn't see the wood for the trees

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
Start the rumor again

Selling more than sliced bread, honey
Bigger than Ben-Hur
What'cha gonna do with all that money
Send it on back to her

Reap the harvest
Sow the seed
That's what the Good Book says
Starve the truth and feed the rumor
And your imagination's gonna do the rest

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
Start the rumor againnnnn

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

It was larger than life
It was older than time
It was all that you need
All of a sudden we changed overnight
But the people couldn't see the wood for the trees

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
(Start the rumor)

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
(You better leave) leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again (yeah)
Start the rumor againnn (now)
Start the rumor again
Start the rumor again (yeah)

Start the rumor
Start the rumor
Start the rumor
Start the rumor
