Tell It Like It Is (Davis/Diamond)


If you want someone to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
My time is too expensive
And I'm not your little boy

If you are serious
Play with my heart it makes me inferior
But if you want me to love you
Baby I will, you know that I will

Tell it like it is

Let your conscience be your guide
I know deep down you love me
Give up your foolish pride
Oh yeah

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
And so you might as well get what you want
Baby and live go on and live

Tell it like it is

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
And so you might as well get what you want
Baby and live girl go on and live

Tell it like it is
Oh like it is
Tell it like it is
Like it is

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
So you might as well get what you want
Baby and live go on and live

Tell it like it is

Mmm mmm

Oh like it is
Just like it is
Like it is
Oh like it is
Like it is


Other version


If you want someone to blame
Go and find yourself someone
I promised you again
And I'm not your little boy

If you are serious
Play with my heart it makes me inferior
But if you want me to love you
Baby, I will you know that I will
Tell it like it is

Let your conscience be your guide
I know deep down you love me
Give up your foolish pride, oh yeah

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
And so you might as well get what you want
Baby and live, go on and live
Tell it like it is

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
And so you might as well get what you want
Baby and live, girl go on and live
Tell it like it is

Oh, like it is
Tell it like it is
Like it is

Life is too short to have sorrow
Here today and gone tomorrow
So you might as well get what you want
Baby and live, go on and live
Tell it like it is

Oh, oh
Oh, like it is
Just like it is
Like it is
Girl like it is
Like it is
