Rhett & Link – Just Being Honest lyrics

[Intro]
Girl 1: You know what I just can't get enough of?
Girl 2: What?
Girl 1: Honesty.
Girl 2: I know, right?
Girl 1: It's so refreshing
Girl 2: For me, it's honesty or I'm not interested.
Girl 1: Totally!

(Music starts)

Rhett: That's what we need, man.
Link: Yeah. We need more honesty in our lives.
Rhett: We just told so many lies to so many people.
Link: And now we need to back to each one of 'em and come clean
.

[Verse 1]
Last week, I saw you in the lobby passin' through.
You said, "Hey, how you doin'?"
And I said, "Pretty good, man. And you?"
Well, that wasn't true.
I was actually doin' pretty bad.
Havin' just received some unfortunate news from my dad.
He had invested my inheritance in his new business plan,
That plan was takin' teens to the prom in a fleet of used minivans.
So at that moment, I didn't really care how you were doin',
And I don't remember your name.
That's why I called you "man"
.

[Verse 2}
The other night at midnight, you called me on the phone.
You asked me if you woke me up, but I said, no".
But the truth is I was in the deepest sleep of my life
Havin' the most realistic dream I was flyin',
In the International Human Flying Championship.
You sister was there and was about to give me a kiss.
That's when you called me, and asked me how to say "guhnauchi".
Listen closely.
It's "gnocchi".

[Chorus]
I'm just being honest-est-est-est.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me-much to me
.

[Verse 3]
Remember on our romantic night out, you broke the silence by asking,
"What are you thinkin' about?".
I said, "How much I love you." But that's not true.
I mean, I do love you, I just don't think like you do.
My brain's a sophisticated department of completely disconnected compartments and at that particular moment I was thinking about-
Sports
.

[Verse 4]
Last night, when I was quiet you asked me, "What's wrong?"
I looked into your eyes and said, "Nothing at all."
That's not exactly true, I'm actually starting to resent you
And the work you're pouring into
Your taxidermy petting zoo.
You haven't called me "pookie-pie" in over four months!
Do you wanna preserve us, or this dead dove
?

[Chorus]
I'm just being honest-est-est-est.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me-much to me.

[Verse 5]
The day before yesterday you pulled me over and
Asked, "Do you have any idea how fast you were goin'?"
I said, "Oh no, Officer. I didn't even see you."
But I did see you, and I was goin' seventy-two.
And in full disclosure my right speaker was blown,
And for the preceding ten miles my left blinker was on.
I had no intention of ever turning left
.

[Verse 6]
You may recall I gave a testimonial for you product.
I said, "The Face Cave in no way makes me look idiotic.
I feel like I'm in a cave even though I'm not really in a cave,
Because the only thing in the cave is my face."
To tell you the truth, Face Caves are hostile.
Unless you really like stalagmites up your nostrils.

[Verse
7]
You know your terms and conditions agreement?
When I was updating my software,
I didn't read it
!

[Chorus]
I'm just being honest-est-est-est.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me.
Honestly, honesty means that much to me-much to me.
