Girl Talk by: Elvis Costello

Postby Siouxsie » Thu Jan 19, 2006 12:57 pm

We have a mini recording studio in our secondary barn. It's not much more than a place for amateur musicians to practice .. but I get to show off some down there. Plus Mr. Maxwell lets me sing at some of his Pubs, occasionally. So I gotta have material.

This evening, some guys from Ohio are practicing down there.
I get to rehearse one tune. So I'm working on the lyrics, Girl Talk written by Elvis Costello.

There is one line that goes:
You may not be an old fashioned girl but you're gonna get dated
and I'm going to change it to:

I may be an old fashioned girl - but I'm gonna get LAID!

LOL

Aw, shoot .. here's the whole song:

Girls Talk

written by Elvis Costello
© 1979 Plangent Vision Muisc Inc (ASCAP)

There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder
Thought I heard you mention my name can't you talk any louder
Don't come any closer
Don't come any nearer
My vision of you can't come any clearer
Oh I just wanna hear girls talk

Got a loaded imagination being fired by girls talk
It's a more or less situation inspired by girls talk
But I can't say the words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna have to play it by ear right here and now

Girls talk
And they wanna know how girls talk
And they say it's not allowed girls talk
If they say that it's so don't they think that I know by now
That the word up on everyone's lips stick that you're dedicated
You may not be an old fashioned girl but you're gonna get dated
Was it really murder were you just pretending
Lately I have heard you are the living end

Girls talk
And they wanna know how girls talk
And they say it's not allowed girls talk
And they think they know how girls talk
if they say that it's so don't they think that I know by now

But I can't say the words you want to hear
I suppose you're gonna have to play it by ear right here
There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder
Thought I heard you mention my name can't you talk any louder
Don't come any closer
Don't come any nearer
My vision of you can't come any clearer
Girls talk
And they think they know how girls talk
And they say it's not allowed girls talk
And they think they know how girls talk
Girls talk, girls talk
judge me if you must !

Does that mean you have a Primary Barn? If so, for what do you use it?

I liked "Veronica." But that's about it.

He's just not my kind of musician.

Elvis Costello covering a Linda Ronstadt song about sums up my opinion. Albeit, I do like veronica and watching the detectives well for elvs C. songs.

I heard Life in a Northern Town the other day, I realy like that song
So that just illustrates I do like sissy songs too ;-D
