"Baby Don't You Lie to Me" as written by and John Paul Lawler....
Oh little girl you can roll your eyes
at the very sight of me
Do everything in spite of me
But baby don't you lie to me
I'll take your mood swings
I'll dig a hole in your dishonesty
I'll kneel down in your company
But baby don't you lie to me

I'll be your red-cheeked lover
and your man of regret
There'll be no desert too dry
and no ocean too wet
I'll be your punch bag substitute
I'll sharpen your claws
When you come tumbling down
you'll still win my applause

But there's just one thing baby
I could never abide
No matter how much you beg
no matter how hard you try
You can tell me that I'll never be free
Baby don't you lie to me

Oh little sister I could handle the thought
of you despising me
Dancing on my grave and baptising me
As long as baby you don't lie to me
I'll bend until you you have broken my will
I'll be no enemy
You'll never hear so much
as a complaint from me
as long as baby you don't lie to me

Well you can take my heart of stone
take my pride
Take all my valentine scars
and tear them open wide
Chase my friends, ruin my name
I won't ever fight back, I'll be easy to blame

But there's just one thing baby
I will always despise
It's not the crack of your whip
or the hatred in your eyes
I got only one reasonable plea
baby don't you lie to me
Burn my house, throw me out
Put me down, sell my clothes
I'll dig you out of a hole
when your ignorance shows
I'll be anything you need me to be
Baby don't you lie to me

Every time your lips move baby
someone somewhere's bound to cry
I don't even think
you're quite aware of how or why
Life for you could be so easy
if you'd only shut your mouth

Every time you feel those words come
running out running out running out
running out running out running out
running out running out running out
running out running out running out

But there's just one thing baby
I could never abide
No matter how much you beg
no matter how hard you try
You can tell me that I'll never be free
Baby don't you lie to me
Drag my name and reputation
over the cold hard stones
Break my heart up into pieces
honey shatter my bones
You can kill me with your repartee
but baby don't you lie to me

But there's just one thing baby
I will always despise
It's not the crack of your whip
or the hatred in your eyes
I got only one reasonable plea
baby don't you lie to me
Burn my house, throw me out
Put me down, sell my clothes
I'll dig you out of a hole
when your ignorance shows
I'll be anything you need me to be
Baby don't you lie to me
