LITTLE WHITE LIES

Unofficial studio version


A-one two three four, one two three four

Your scrapbook's filled with pictures of all your leading men
Well baby don't put my picture in there with them
Oh, don't make us some little girl's dream that can not ever, really ever come true
Baby, don't do it to me, I won't do it to you

You see all the romantic movies
You dream and take the boys home
But when the action fades, girl, you're left there all alone
I have a nest of love, that really ever can grow
Maybe you wanted outtakes from a late, late show

Oh, you said don't do it, girl, baby, please don't do it
It would serve to hurt and make you cry like you do, girl

Every night you go out looking for true love's satisfaction
But in the morning you always end up settling for just lights, camera, action
And another cameo role with some bit player you're befriending
You're gonna go broken hearted, looking for that happy ending
Hey!

Oh, you're gonna, you're gonna end up just another lonely ticket sold
Crying alone in the theater as they close the show
Oh, don't make this some little girl's dream that can not ever, really ever come true
Baby, don't do it to me, I won't do it to you
Yeah, I won't do it to you
I won't
I won't
I won't
I won't
