Outside Influences – The Go-Go’s – Our Lips Are Sealed

Due to recent family problems, and contemplating how to respond to them, the below song soon came to mind. From the Go-Go’s album, Beauty and the Beat, released in 1981, it’s an excellent example of simple poetry put to music. I have the LP version, and every song on it is great IMHO.


Our Lips Are Sealed

Can you hear them?
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them?
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

There's a weapon
That we must use
In our defense
Silence reveals

When you look at them
Look right through them
That's when they'll disappear
That's when we'll be feared

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

Pay no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed

Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Quiet, angel
Forget their lies

Can you hear them?
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well,…
