This song is by Matthew Sweet And Susanna Hoffs and appears on the album Under The Covers Vol. 3 (2014).

This song is a cover of "Girls Talk" by Elvis Costello.
There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder
Thought I heard you mention my name, can't you talk any louder?
Don't come any closer, don't come any nearer
My vision of you can't come any clearer
Oh, I just want to hear girls talk

I got a loaded imagination being fired by girls talk
It's a more or less situation inspired by girls talk
But I can't say the words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna to have to play it by ear
Right here and now

Girls talk and they want to know how
Girls talk and they say it's not allowed
Girls talk, if they say that it's so
Don't you think that I know by now

Got the word up on everyone's lipstick that you're dedicated
You may not be an old fashioned girl but you're going to get dated
Was it really murder?
Were you just pretending?
Lately I have heard you are the living end

Girls talk and they want to know how
Girls talk and they say it's not allowed
Girls talk, if they say that it's so
Don't you think that I know by now

But I can't say the words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna have to play it by ear
Right here

There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder
Thought I heard you mention my name, can't you talk any louder?
Don't come any closer, don't come any nearer
My vision of you can't come any clearer

Girls talk and they want to know how
Girls talk and they say it's not allowed
Girls talk, and they think they know how
Girls talk
Girls talk
Girls talk
Girls talk
