I Think We Need To Talk (6 Words Nobody Wants to Hear)

Steve Mardon

Lyrics

You wake up, you're feeling good

You're the king of your whole neighborhood

Got a car, got a job, got a girl

You're on top of the world

On the highway you see a trail of smoke

Your engine starts to sputter, hiss, and choke

You pull into a station off Route 1

The mechanic takes a look and he says, son...

“I think we need to talk”

Six words nobody wants to hear

“It's gonna cost you 800 bucks

If you want to get your car back into gear”

You taxi into work by 10

Boss says, “You know you're late again”

Since day one on the job he's had his doubts

Now he grabs you by the collar and he shouts

“I think we need to talk” (I think we need to talk)

Six words nobody wants to hear

“Clear your desk, be gone by 12 o'clock”

So much for your promising career

On the way home you drop in on an old pal

Who's always there when things have gone to hell

Door's open so you knock and walk on in

And find your sweetheart loving your best friend (guess what she says)

“I think we need to talk” (I think we need to talk)

Six words nobody wants to hear

“I know this comes as quite a shock

Now be a sport and hand me my brassiere”

I think we need to talk (I think we need to talk)

Six words nobody wants to hear

Bad news is circling like a hawk

And you know darn well the end is near

Yeah you know damn well the end is near

For every mood
