"Tell It Like It Is" as written by and David/smith Cairns....
If you want something to play with
Go and find yourself a toy
Baby, my time is too expensive
And I'm not a little boy

If you are serious
Don't play with my heart
It makes me furious

But if want me to love you
Then, baby, I will
Girl, you know I will

Tell it like it is
Don't be ashamed to let
Your conscience be your guide
But I know deep down inside of 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 what you want
So go on and live
Baby, go on and live

Tell it like it is
I'm nothing to play with
Go and find yourself a toy

But I tell it like it is
My time is too expensive
And I'm not your little boy

Tell it like it is
