American Old Time Song Lyrics: 06 People Will Talk
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 6
PEOPLE WILL TALK.
Written and sung by Sam Devere.
I've moved in a curious neighborhood, sure,
Never saw such a gang in my life;
The women are talking from morning till night,
Telling all sorts of stuff to my wife.
There's a snaggle-tooth woman lives over the way,
With a nose like the beak of a hawk.
She's never done carrying stories aboutIt's funny how people will talk.
The very first day we moved in the house,
They came to see what we would eat;
And a cross-eyed old man came in from next door,
And run down every one in the street;
Then when he went out he went over the way',
Told the neighbors I looked like a gawk;
I'll throw him down stairs if he comes in againIt's funny how people will talk.
