It all started out by a word of mouth
Moving fast on a whim
It went all through the suburbs, the north and south
And when it finally got back to him

It was larger than life, it was older than time
It was all that you need
All of a sudden we changed overnight
But the people couldn't see the wood for the trees

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
Start the rumor again

Selling more than sliced bread, honey
Bigger than Ben-Hur
What'cha gonna do with all that money?
Send it on back to her

Reap the harvest, sow the seed
That's what the Good Book says
Starve the truth and feed the rumor
And your imagination's gonna do the rest

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
Start the rumor again

It was larger than life, it was older than time
It was all that you need
All of a sudden we changed overnight
But the people couldn't see the wood for the trees

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
(Start the rumor)

Go and tell your mother
Pass it on to a friend
(You better leave)
Leave it all to your brother
Start the rumor again
(Yeah)
Start the rumor again
(Now)

Start the rumor again
Start the rumor again
(Yeah)

Start the rumor
Start the rumor
Start the rumor
