People talkin' tryin' to break us up
Why don't they let us be?
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But talk don't bother me

Now, people talkin' tryin' to break us up
When they know that I love you so
So I don't care what the people might say
I'll never, never let you go

I've been abused (I've been abused)
In my heart (I've been accused)
I've been accused (I've been accused)
I've been rebuked and I've been stung

People talkin' tryin' to break us up
Scandalizin' my name
They say anything just to make me feel bad
They'll say anything to make me ashamed

I've been abused (I've been abused)
In my heart (I've been accused)
I've been accused (I've been accused)
I've been rebuked and I've been stung

People talkin' tryin' to break us up
Scandalizin' my name
They say anything just to make me feel bad
They'll say anything to make me ashamed
