Guy Clark – Shut Up And Talk To Me lyrics

Love is never gonna be a solid bet
It抯 kinda like workinwithout a net
Don抰 be afraid to let your feelin抯 out
That抯 what lovinis all about
Come on Baby and give me a break
It抯 how do you feel, not what do you think
Stop rattlinyour keys
Shut up and talk to me

You know I抳e known you long enough to know
There抯 nothinyou can hide that still don抰 show
You ain抰 foolinanyone but you
When you put me through what you put me through
Come on Honey and tell me the truth
Gimme chicken fried steak, not a Baby Ruth
I抦 not that hard to please
Shut up and talk to me
Shut up and talk to me


You can talk about the weather
Till it drives me nits
You can rattle on about
Why, who, what
A little conversation
Wouldn抰 hurt that much
A little somethin
With a human touch

Now, if you抮e hurtin Baby, tell me so
If you need attention let me know
I抦 not the one that you抮e hidinfrom
It doesn抰 matter what the ever you done
You can have your cake and eat it too
That抯 the kinda stuff I want from you
How hard can it be
Shut up and talk to me
Shut up and talk to me
