Billy Joe Royal – Tell It Like It Is lyrics

If you want somethin' to play with
Go and but yourself a toy
Baby, my time is too expensive
And I'm not your little boy
If you are serious
Don't play with my heart
It makes me furious
But if you want me to want you
You know, baby, I will
You know that I will
Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed
That your cause to feel died
But I know deep down inside me
I believe you love me
Forget your foolish pride
Life is too short to have sorrow
You may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get it while you want
So go on and live
Baby, go on and live
Tell it like it is
I'm nothin' to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
But I tell it like it is
And I'm not your little boy
M-m-m-m-m
Tell it like it is
I'm nothin' to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
But I tell it like it is
My time is real expensive
And I'm not your little boy (fade
