Won't you give me the low down just as quick as you can?
Baby, I've been out of touch, just give me the scam
Don't give me the sports page, baby, no political news
Don't you give me the gossip, just give me the truth
Just between me and you

Give me the low down if you can
I don't want a show down
I just want to know where I stand

Don't read me the horoscope, baby, that ain't what I need
Our future will never last but that's between you and me
I don't want the movie section, I'll see for myself
I don't want the news that fits, shove it back on the shelf

Give me the truth
Just between me and you

The headlines are screaming, they change every day
As long as I ain't in them, I'm happy that way
I know that you won't lie to me but you hold back the truth
Please give me the low down, I can only get it from you

Give me the low down as quick as you can
I don't want to hear about it, I want it straight from you

Come on, baby, give me the juice
Oh yeah
