They say her pretty face is enough to launch a ship
Mix that with charm and style
How you gonna miss
With all the admiration the world is at her feet
She's living for attention when she's spotted on the street
Don't believe it
Don't believe what you read
Don't believe it
About the life that I lead
Dinner an a movie
I'll just show my face in town
Rumors fly so fast that I don't try to live'em down
Gets old answering questions why and trying to explain
Why I prefer to stay at home with friends and entertain
Don't believe it
Don't believe what you read
Don't believe it
About the life that I lead
To the outside world it's paradise
They'd love to be in my shoes
They don't seem to realize that it's not like in the news
Don't believe it
Don't believe what you read
Don't believe it
About the life that I lead
I just read in the papers that I bought some birds today
Flying all around my house
Just havin' their own sweet way
It makes me feel so foolish 'cause they called my house a cage
But there's nothing I can do
Just puts me in a rage
Don't believe it
Don't believe what you read
Don't believe it
About the life that I lead
Don't believe it
Don't believe what you read
Don't believe it
About the life that we lead
