I starten av karriéren var det mange som forbandt Elvis Costello med både punk og new wave. Costello bemerket seg tidlig som en låtskriver av rang, noe bl.a. Dave Edmunds visste å ta tak i da Edmunds i 1979 fikk en hit i England med Costellos “GIRLS TALK”. New Jordal Swingers hentet nok mye fra Edmunds’ versjon da de kom opp med sin "GIRLS TALK" i sceneversjon på midten av 1980-tallet. Og det er denne sceneversjonen med NJS vi hører på utgivelsen “NJS - LIVE!”

Girls Talk

(Elvis Costello) 

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 want to 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 want to 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 everyones 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 you think that I’d 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, I hear

 

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
