Words like love and happiness
Never seem to stand up baby
When you put them to the test, yeah
You say that you're a poet
That your loves a work of art
But you can't play love by numbers baby
You gotta play it all by heart

Chorus:
Baby, baby, baby, baby
It happens all the time
How you play me, play me, play me
Playing with my mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Youre making me go crazy
And if you call that love
Then love should be a crime

Honesty
Bites the dust
Every time I hear you saying
Love is never lust yeah
Did you read it in a book
Did you see it in a magazine
Do you think that Im some new age fool
Do you think Im so naive

Chorus

Love should be a crime
You and me
Suddenly
We got nothing to say
But the words get in the way

Baby, baby, baby, baby
It happens all the time
How you play me, play me, play me
Playing with my mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Youre making me go crazy
And if you call that love
Then all it was
Was a pocketful of nothing
But a suicidal love
If you call that love
Then love should be a crime
