Tell It Like It Is Lyrics

If you want something to play with,
Go and find yourself a toy.
Baby, my time is too expensive,
And I'm not a little boy.
If you are serious,
Don't play with my heart.
It makes me furious,
But if want me to love you,
Then, a-baby, I will,
Girl, you know I will.

Tell it like it is.
Don't be ashamed to let your
Conscience be your guide.
But, I-I-I-I know deep down inside of me,
I believe you love me.
Forget your foolish pride.
Life is too short to have sorrow.
You may be here today and gone tomorrow.
You might as well get what you want.
So, go on and live, baby, go on and live.
Tell it like it is.
I'm nothin' to play with,
Go and find yourself a toy.
But, I-I-I tell it like it is.
My time is too expensive.
And I'm not your little boy.

Mm mm, tell it like it is...
