1984/1985 song about an affair
I heard this song on the radio in 84/85 (possibly WAMO in Pittsburgh PA)

It's about a woman letting the secret out about an affair
....the only lyrics I remember are.....

"It's all over town that you and I are getting it on"

Would really appreciate any help on the song title and artist. Thanks!

1984/1985 song about an affair
the only song that comes to mind is called the word is out but it was sung by a man name jermaine stewart. in it he sung about the word being out

You had to be the one to say it
You couldn't keep it
Our secret, oh, no

All over town
Everybody's talking
It ain't no secret anymore

You are the one they're saying
And that's phony information
My confidence
You've been betraying

I don't know what
(I don't know what) to do
Because the word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
It on, it on, it on, it on

There's nothing left
To do but stop it
I won't be beaten
Oh, no, I won't

I can't stand the gossip
Out on the streets now
How could they see us
Behind closed doors

Why did you have to tell them
I told you not to say a word
Why did you have to say it
We were never seen (never seen)
Now I can't believe the word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I been getting it on
The word, the word, the word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers
That you and I been getting it on
The word is out

That you and I are lovers
That you and I are lovers (oh, yeah)
That you and I been getting it on
The word, the word, the word is out

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! How you both came up with the right song when I gave you so little to go on (and what I gave wasn't totally accurate - oh the memory is going) is simply AMAZING!!

The song title or artist is more than I could have hoped for, but you guys offered lyrics, and a video I had never seen. Incredible!! I'm blown away! Again, many thanks!!
