Well, you didn't think I knew that you'd been cheatin' on me
You thought that I was stayin' home while you went on a spree
But I've been staying outta sight and I see the things you do
I've been playin' possum, I've been a-watchin' you.

Playin' possum, (playin' possum, ) a-watchin' you
Seein' you do all those thing that I know you shouldn't do
But I'll keep hanging on because my love for you is true
I'll keep playing possum and keep on loving you.

--- Instrumental ---

Last night I climbed up in a tree a-just outside his house
And I saw him a-chasing you, a-playing cat and mouse
Then I crawled up and went on home I didn't know what to do
I've been a-playing possum, yes I've been a-watching you.

Playin' possum, (playin' possum, ) watchin' you
Seein' you do all those thing that I know you shouldn't do
But I'll keep hanging on because my love for you is true
I'll keep playing possum and keep on loving you.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm a-playin' possum, (playin' possum, ) a-watchin' you
Seein' you do all those thing that I know you shouldn't do
But I'll keep hanging on because my love for you is true
And I'll keep playing possum and keep on loving you.

Yeah, I'll keep playing possum and keep on loving you...
