Reverse psychology doesn't work on me
It works my nerves but I think logically
So, don't rehearse what you're gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I won't nurse it
I don't buy psyche, so why reverse it?

Games are good for attention, mm yeah
But in the end they let you down
Hold me back or let me go
But no more middle ground

Boy, you've got to play your cards right
Get on back to the basics of love
We don't need no mindless mind games
A little give and take, push and shove
A little honesty is what I'm in need of

Reverse psychology doesn't work on me
It works my nerves but I think logically
So, don't rehearse what you're gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I won't nurse it
I don't buy psyche, so why reverse it?

Don't you know I've seen it all
Though I seem naive to you
So now, hit me with anything at all
Just hit me with the truth, yeah

You keep thinking one of these days you'll
Push my back against the wall, against the wall
It's too late for tricks of the trade now
I can escape anything at all, oh
A little push and shove, give and take but I won't fall

Reverse psychology, doesn't work on me, never did
Never will, it works my nerves but I think logically
So, don't rehearse what you're gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I won't nurse it
I don't buy psyche, so why reverse it?

Why wait till something better comes along?
Why not stay steady and strong? Steady and strong
A silver lining cannot be far away, be far
You'll get much further if you
Do what you mean and mean what you say

1 2 3, I said

Reverse psychology doesn't work on me
It works my nerves but I think logically, oh so much
So, don't rehearse what you're gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I won't nurse it
I don't buy, I don't buy it, psyche, so why reverse it?

Reverse psychology doesn't work on me
It works my nerves but I think logically
So, don't rehearse what you're gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I won't nurse it
I don't buy psyche, so why reverse it?

Jam, jam, I said, jam, reverse psychology style
Jam, jam, ooh yeah
