About Our Lips Are Sealed

"Our Lips Are Sealed" is a song co-written by Jane Wiedlin, guitarist for The Go-Go's, and Terry Hall, singer for The Specials and Fun Boy Three. It was first recorded by The Go-Go's as the opening track on their album Beauty and the Beat (1981) and was their debut American single in June 1981. The single eventually reached the top 5 in Australia and Canada, and the top 20 in the United States. Although originally written and performed with three verses, an abbreviated version of the song appears on Beauty and the Beat. In 1983, Hall's band, Fun Boy Three, released their version of "Our Lips Are Sealed". Issued as a single, the track became a top ten hit in the UK, and remains the best known version of "Lips" in that country. The recording of it by The Go-Go's, while a bigger hit elsewhere, only made #47 in the UK. In 2000, Rolling Stone named "Our Lips Are Sealed" one of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs of all time.

Can you hear them?
Talking about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them?
See right through them
They have no shield
Nothing must be revealed

It doesn't matter what they say
No one's listening anyway
Our lips are sealed

There's a weapon
That we can use
In our defense
Silence

But just look at them
Look right through them
That's when they disappear
That's when we lose the fear

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play

Hush, my darling
Hush my darling
Don't you cry
Guardian angel?
Forget their lies

Can you hear them?
Talking about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them?
See right through them
They have a shield
Nothing must be revealed

It doesn't matter what they say
No one's listening anyway (hush, my darling)
Our lips are sealed

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play (hush, my darling)
Our lips are sealed (hush, my darling)

Our lips are sealed (hush, my darling)
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

The band wore mod-style "1960s period rude boy outfits (pork pie hats, tonic and mohair suits, and loafers)." In 1980, the song "Too Much Too Young", the lead track on their The Special AKA Live! EP, reached number one in the UK. In 1981, the unemployment-themed single "Ghost Town" also hit number one in the UK Singles Chart.
