  • [Chorus:]
    Would I lie to you?
    Would I lie to you honey?
    Now would I say something that wasn't true?
    I'm asking you sugar
    Would I lie to you?

    My friends - know what's in store
    I won't be here anymore
    I've packed my bags
    I've cleaned the floor
    Watch me walkin'
    Walkin' out the door

    (believe me - I'll make it make it)
    Tell you straight - no intervention
    To your face - no deception
    You're the biggest fake
    That much is true
    Had all I can take
    Now I'm leaving you

    (believe me - I'll make it make it)


    (watch me - watch me! ooh yea) Writer/s: ANNIE LENNOX, DAVID ALLAN STEWART
