Let's talk it over, baby, before we start
I heard about the way you used to do your part

Don't lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad
I'll get evil as a man can be

Well of all kinds of people that I just can't stand
That's a lying woman and a cheating man

Don't lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad
I'll get evil as a man can be

Yeah, get it on

Well I will love you, baby, and it ain't no lie
I swear I will be with you 'til the well run dry

Don't lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad
I get shook up as a man can be

Well, let's talk it over, baby, before we start
I heard about the way you used to do your part

Don't lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad
I get shook up as a man can be

Well, well, well, let's talk it over, baby, before we start
I heard about the way you used to do your part

Don't lie to me
Don't you lie to me
Don't you make me mad
I get evil as a man can be
