When I said I'd be faithful
When I promised I'd be true
When I swore that I could never
Be with anyone but you
When I told you that I loved you
With those tender words I spoke
I was only kidding
Now, can't you take a joke?

When I said that I need you, baby
When I told you I really care
When I said that I can't live without you
When I said I'd follow you anywhere
When I said you could always trust me
When I said I'd never leave you flat
Well, guess what? I was only kidding, baby
I can't believe you fell for that!
You're so gullible...

CHORUS
(I was only kidding) I was only kidding
(I was only kidding) I was only kidding
I was only kidding
Now I'm sorry if you misunderstood, but the fact remains
(I was only kidding) I was only kidding
(I was only kidding) I was only kidding
Well I guess I got you pretty good, now listen

When I said that I love you baby
From the very bottom of my heart
When I said that I miss you so badly
Every second that we're apart
When I said that you're just getting more and more
Beautiful every day
Well, I was only kidding, honey
What's that matter with you anyway?
Let me tell you something

(CHORUS)

Well I guess it probably hurts you a lot,
But you gotta know
I really love you...NOT!

When I said you oughtta marry me
When I said that we should settle down
Well, I was pullin' your leg there, honey
I was just foolin' around
You see, I-I never meant to upset you, darlin'
I never meant to hurt anyone
I was only kidding, baby
Why don't you just put down that gun?
Let's talk this over

(CHORUS)

Watch where you're pointing that thing!
Hey, I'm sorry if your heart is broke
You gotta realize

(CHORUS)
