  • Say you wouldn't kid about it
    She's telling all of those lies
    She swore she'd never told before
    But I doubt it

    So he bit his tongue
    And tried hard to capture his breath
    When she said I waited all my life
    For just a little death

    Say you wouldn't kid about it
    Say you wouldn't kid about it
    Say you wouldn't kid about it

    Sometimes he takes himself so seriously
    She makes her movements mysteriously
    Slow fast or furiously
    It's a big responsibility
    With a face full of mixed ability
    Big dreams of elegance
    Singing the leaving of Liverpool
    And turning into Americans

    Say you wouldn't kid about it
    So what if this is a man's world
    I want to be a kid again about it
    Give me back my sadness
    I couldn't hide it even if I tried girl

    We fight so frail
    Making love tooth and nail
    You gave me the kiss of my life
    I might even live to tell the tale
