Gimme some straight talk, straight talk
And hold the sugar please
Straight talk, straight talk
Sounds plenty sweet to me

Don't talk to me in circles
In some mumbo-jumbo jive
Gimme just straight talk, straight talk
And we're gonna be alright

'Cause I like to know just where I stand
I don't like guessing games
And I hate a bunch of gibberish
So just spit it out real plain

Don't use big educated words
From your BS Degree
Straight talk, straight talk
Don't try bossing me

Straight talk, straight talk
Turn loose and let it go
You can tell me anything
Just like on Oprah's show

Just tell me how you really feel
Be on the up and up
With questions I can understand
For answers you can trust

Pick up the 'phone, you're not alone
We've all got something to say
So listen in and listen up
We'll find a better way

With honesty and common sense
It's really hard to miss
Straight talk, straight talk
Just tellin' it like it is

Straight talk, straight talk
There's nothing like the truth
Just tell me all your troubles
Pretend I'm Donahue

So don't be shy, 'cause we can talk
You know you've got a friend
Call me, call me
For simple straight talkin'

What's cookin', America?
Straight talk, Straight talk
Straight talk, Straight talk

So come on let's talk turkey
Just straight and to the point
About passions, about problems
About noses out of joint

Now I want you all to know
I care and I do understand
And hey, thanks for lending me an ear
Out there in radio land

Give me some straight talk, straight talk
Don't sugar coat it please
Straight talk, straight talk
Sounds sweet enough to me

But don't talk to me in circles
In your mumbo-jumbo jive
Straight talk, straight talk
And we're gonna be alright

Straight talk, straight talk
Makes plenty sense to me
Don't talk to me in circles
In your mumbo-jumbo jive

Gimme just straight talk, straight talk
And we're gonna be alright
Gimme just straight talk, straight talk
And we're gonna be alright
