You keep telling me, yes
But you don't mean it
You keep telling me, no
And try to lean it

You're giving me buts and maybe
You know this will drive me crazy
Why can't you tell it like it is?

And let your yeah, be yeah
And your no be no, now
Let your yeah be yeah
And your no, be no, now

Because, I'm on my guard and
I'm watching you from head to toe
So better let your yeah, be yeah
And your no, be no

You wear a plastic smile
I know by your eyes
You speak with indefinite style
You're telling me lies

You've got to face reality
What is wrong with you and me?
Why can't you free your honesty?

And let your yeah, be yeah
And your no be no, now
Let your yeah be yeah
And your no, be no, now

Because, I'm on my guard
And I'm watching you from head to toe
So, you better let your yeah, be yeah
And your no, be no

You keep telling me, yes
But you don't mean it
You keep telling me, no
And try to lean it

You're giving me buts and maybe
You know this will drive me crazy
Why can't you tell it like it is?

You better let your yeah, be yeah
And your no, be no, now
Let your yeah, be yeah
And your no, be no, now

Because, I'm on my guard and
I'm watching you from head to toe
So, you better let your yeah, be yeah
