Cool reactions to your lies, lies

La-la-la-la-la-lies

You can't repeat what you put 'round
All the things that made me cry
You kicked me when I was down
And they hurt me, all those lies, lies
La-la-la-la-la-lies

I've got my girl and together we're strong, so strong
A                             D
To laugh at you and prove you wrong

I don't insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don't ever think you made me mad
I didn't listen to your lies, lies
La-la-la-la-la-lies

When I make love to you
And do all the things you want me to do
You never think of me, always cry a bevy
A bevy of tears 'cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

C                                   G
There was a time I could give all I had to you

But my enthusiasm waned and I can't bear the pain
   D/A                        D
Of doing what I don't want to do

Much too much to bear

Your love is hard and fast
Your love will always last
If it's you I need I've got to pay the levy
Got to pay 'cause your love's too heavy on me

And it's much too much to bear

When I was a little boy
At the age of five
I had something in my pocket
Keep a lot of folks alive
But I'm a man now
I'm age twenty-one
Gonna tell all you women, you know, we gonna have a lotta fun
I'm a man now
I spell M A N

Where did you hear that it was tuned down? I'm not complaining though, I actually like it better this way than in standard.
