The house you lived in now is quiet
And the street you walk with him is bright
Oh, you should know that talk would get around
Bad news travels fast in our town.

Not so long ago you were my bride
So I guess you know that I've got pride
Oh, everybody knows you've left me down just look around
Bad news travels fast in our town.

Our name is still the same in city hall
And the town we walk around in you know is small
And if that doesn't bother you at all
Just look around bad news travels fast in our town.

Just look around bad news travels fast in our town...
