Better Be True Lyrics

by Huey Lewis & The News

I don't mind you playing with my imagination
I don't mind you talking about me and you
I might think it's funny if you're fooling with my money
But I don't like you saying things that just aren't true

I don't mind discussing wisdom and the youth
And I don't mind you cussing if you're telling the truth
You can joke about the weather on a lousy day
Don't tell me that you're leaving if you're planning to stay

Well, it don't have to be different, it don't have to be new
If you got something to tell me, well, it better be true
It don't have to be clever between me and you
If it's gonna be forever, it better be true

I don't mind rehearsing but I'd much rather play
And I don't mind conversing if you've got something to say
A little exaggeration might be understood
Lying to me, darling, well, that just ain't no good

Well, it don't have to be different, it don't have to be new
If you got something to tell me, well, it better be true
No, it don't have to be clever between me and you
If it's gonna be forever, it better be true
How long? Gonna be forever, it better be true

If you feel like telling me that you will never leave me
Well, don't you dare deceive me 'cause that will never do

Well, it don't have to be different, it don't have to be new
If you got something to tell me, well, it better be true
No, it don't have to be clever between me and you
If it's gonna be forever, it better be true
How long? Gonna be forever, it better be true
Better be true

If you got something to tell me, better be true
It better be true, better be true
If it's gonna be forever, better be true
It better be true
