Sally told Mary, Mary told Jerry,
Jerry's a spreading it round
That we had a quarrel, a foolish quarrel,
Now we're the talk of the town.

Well, now rumors are flying like leaves in the air
Whispering that I let you down
And there's one thing for certain it's our love they're hurtin'
They've made us the talk of the town.

Sally told Mary, Mary told Jerry,
Jerry's a spreading it round
That we had a quarrel, a foolish quarrel,
Now we're the talk of the town.

--- Instrumental ---

So please don't believe what they say about me
They're trying to keep us apart
I'll swear that I love you, there's no one above you
Yes, you are the one of my heart.

Sally told Mary, Mary told Jerry,
Jerry's a spreading it round
That we had a quarrel, a foolish quarrel,
Now we're the talk of the town...
