Roosevelt Sykes – You Deceived Me lyrics

Now, it's so true
That I want romance
But I'm chicken
And I'm afraid to take the chance

You know when I know
That love ain't no crime
But I've been disappointed
Deceived by you my last time, my-my

Darlin' what I'm sayin'
It ain't no fair a deal
When I say I love you
Now, you can bet it's for real

You know when I know
That love ain't no crime
But I've been disappointed
Deceived by you my last time, my-my

Now love, love is a thing
You shouldn't just hammer it around
You know you're dealin' with a human's heart
You wind up the loser
When your deal goes down

You see, I ain't no hand
To make no one cry
Lyin' like a dog
And lookin' her right in the eye

You know when I know
That love ain't no crime
But I've been disappointed
Deceived by you my last time, my-my

'Oh, yeah' [Piano]

Love is a thing
Now, you shouldn't just hammer it around, my
Because you're dealin' with a human heart
And you'll wind up the loser
When your deal goes down

You see, I'm no hand
To make no one cry
Lyin' like a dog
And sittin' there, look at her right in the eye

You know when I know
That love ain't no crime
But I've been disappointed
Deceived by you my last time, oh yes

Deceived by you my last time.
