Daryl Hall & John Oates – I Wasn't Born Yesterday lyrics

I forgot just how to feel

City scene aint no big deal

Soul deep so ya say

None of that takes my breath away

Oh I always seem to see

Both sides when they disagree

And neither one seems right

Too much city life

Is messin with my inner lite

And everybodys too cool to believe

I wasnt born yesterday

You should know by now

So lets set the record straight

And we can carry on

I wasnt born yesterday

Ill find out

I aint innocent

Lots of room for me to doubt

I never learned to cry

So far so extreme

If I'm jaded, youre naive

But behind that cynics steady gaze

Theres a wide-eyed lover drink for days

Oh I don't want to be

One of those guys who only sees

The joke behind the lie

Too much city life

May I don't know wrong from right

But baby I aint too cool to believe

I wasnt born yesterday

I don't die for love

Just let the record speak

Then I carry on

I wasnt born yesterday

I don't die for love

Its never too late to come of age

Never too late

Oh I wanna learn to cry
