You had to be the one to say it
You couldn't keep it
Our secret, oh, no

All over town
Everybody's talking
It ain't no secret anymore

You are the one they're saying
And that's phony information
My confidence
You've been betraying

I don't know what
(I don't know what) to do
Because the word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
It on, it on, it on, it on

There's nothing left
To do but stop it
I won't be beaten
Oh, no, I won't

I can't stand the gossip
Out on the streets now
How could they see us
Behind closed doors

Why did you have to tell them
I told you not to say a word
Why did you have to say it
We were never seen (never seen)
Now I can't believe the word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I been getting it on
The word, the word, the word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I been getting it on
The word, the word, the word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
It on, it on, it on, it on

You are the one they're saying
And that's phony information
My confidence
You've been betraying

I don't know what
(I don't know what) to do
Because the word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on

The word, the word, the word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, no)
That you and I are lovers (ooh, yeah)
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
I told you not to tell your friends
Oh, yeah

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
