Boomtown Rats – Don't Believe What You Read lyrics

As soon as I wake up every day,
I look at the papers to see what they say,
I know most what I read will be a lot of lies,
But then you learn really fast to read between the lines,
'Cos I know (he knows)
What I read ain't true
I know (he knows)
And I'm telling you
I know (he knows)
If they say it's red, it's blue
Don't believe what you read,
Do you believe what you read?
No, I don't believe what I read.

Never put it down in writing the old man said
I didn't know then but now I know what he meant
And if you're wondering why your letters never get a reply,
It's just when you tell me that you love me I need to see...your eyes.
'Cos I know
What I read ain't true
I know
And I'm telling you
I know
If they say it's one, it's two
Don't believe what you read,
Do you believe what you read?
No, I don't believe what I read.

And if you pick up a book and you're starting to read it,
I'll tell you what you'd better do,
You can read it till the end and even if you believe it,
That doesn't mean to say it's true...

Don't believe what you read.
