Lyrics 

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?

How about love, love, love, love?

How about love, love, love, love?
