Ray Charles – That's A Lie lyrics

Now, listen, baby
Before you walk out on me
All you hear and half you see
Ain't nothing but a lie

(Oh, yeah, that's a lie)
Believe me, girl
It's just a lie (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

No matter how hard people may try
Don't you let nobody make you cry
Cause it's a lie (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

When your friends
Call you on the telephone
And say I don't love you
You just shy them on

Cause it's a lie, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)
You know it's a lie
Don't you, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

No matter how hard people may try
Don't you let nobody make you cry
Cause it's a lie, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

Look here, I work so hard
I'm trying to get ahead
And when I fight all night
About some things the neighbors say

They say I beat you
Each and every night
That's just as wrong
As saying black is white

And you know
That's a lie, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)
Don't you know it's a lie, baby
(Oh, yeah, you know that's a lie)

No matter how hard they may try
Don't you let nobody make you cry
Cause it's a lie, girl (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

I got one more thing I wanna say

I like your mama
But I wish she'd leave us alone
And stop saying I'm cheating
Every time I leave home

Cause it's a lie (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)
Ain't nothing but a lie, girl
(Oh, yeah, you know that's a lie)

No matter how hard she may try
Don't even let your mama make you cry
Cause it's a lie, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)

Wait a minute now
Please don't get mad at me
(Oh, yeah, you know that's a lie)
I'm just trying to tell you
What the truth is

You know it's a lie, don't you
(Oh, yeah, you know that's a lie)
I keep loving you, baby (oh, yeah)
(You know that's a lie)...
