Have you ever heard of Gossip Town,

On the shore of Falsehood Bay,

Where old Dame Rumor, with rustling gown,

Is going the livelong day?

It isnít far to Gossip Town

For people who want to go.

The Idleness train will take you down,

In just an hour or so.

The Thoughtless road is a popular route.

And most folks start that way.

But itís steep down grade; if you donít watch out,

Youíll land in Falsehood Bay.

Youíll glide through the valley of Vicious Folk.

And into the tunnel of Hate,

Then crossing the Add-To bridge,

You walk right into the city gate.

The principal street is called They-Say,

And, Iíve-Heard is the city well,

And the breezes that blow from Falsehood Bay

Are laden with Donít- You- Tell.

In the midst of the town is Telltale Park,

Youíre never quite safe while there,

For itís owner is Madam Suspicious Remark,

Who lives on the street Donít Care.

Just back of the park is Slandersí Row,

ĎTwas there Good Name died,

Pierced by a dart from Jealousyís bow,

In the hands of Envious Pride.

From Gossip Town, Peace long since fled,

But Trouble, Grief, and Woe,

And Sorrow and Care youíll meet instead

If ever you chance to go.
