[Verse 1]
 G                    A     C                 G
You keep telling me 'yes',     but you don't mean it,
 G                   A     C               G      G7
You keep telling me 'no',     and try to lean it,
C                     G
   You're giving me 'buts' and 'maybes',
C                      G
   You know this will drive me crazy,
C                 G               D    D7
   Why can't you tell it like it is?


[Chorus]
 C                   D                       G          G7
Let your 'yeah' be 'yeah', and your 'no' be 'no', now, baby,
 C                   D                       G          G7
Let your 'yeah' be 'yeah', and your 'no' be 'no', now, mama,
            C                      D                        G    G7
Because I'm on my guard, and I'm watching you from head to toe,
            C                   D
You better let your 'yeah' be 'yeah',
                  G
And your 'no' be 'no'!
               |  /   /   /__/   /  |  /  /__/  /  /  |

[Verse 2]
 G                   A     C                   G

      G                     A     C                      G     G7
You speak with indefinite style,      you're telling me lies,
C                           G      C                      G
   You've got to face re - ality!     What is wrong with you and me?
C                 G                D     D7
   Why can't you free your hones - ty?


[Chorus]
 C                   D                       G          G7

 C                   D                       G          G7
Let your 'yeah' be 'yeah', and your 'no' be 'no', now,
            C                      D                        G   G7
Because I'm on my guard, and I'm watching you from head to toe, so...
