Kimberly Burris / Amy Speace

I was the lowest on the totem pole
A girl in the company of men
First time away from family
Trying to prove myself to them
You go in a little naïve
But then you learn the facts
The first thing that they'll tell you
Is to watch your back – cause

Rumors fly
Rumors fly

From boot camp to combat
School house to the fleet
They give you the unwritten laws
The things you should never speak
Don't be that girl who tells the truth
So I kept my mouth shut and I never left my room – cause

Rumors fly
Rumors fly

It was early in the morning
I had everything to lose
There was a TV to my right
I was the stranger in the room
I was the first to wake and quietly I dressed
I never said a word just left

Cause rumors fly
Cause rumors fly

You know it's gonna happen
You never have to say that word
Don't do anything to fuck it up
For all the other girls
