Lyrics

I Get The Picture

I read the paper every Sunday, unless I buy a Magazine
an article of interest I read Monday, said you'd found a new routine
and I'm tired of playin' hide and seek
don't make promises you don't intend to keep
an honest face, can tell a lie
but when I look at you the truth shows through
I see what you deny

Oh, I get the Picture - I've seen it all in Black and White
Oh, I get the Picture - funny what develops overnight

In the latest scandal over money, you and those politicians made out fine
you tried to save your reputation, by leaving questions about mine
I won't settle for a second guess - you said you love me so I'm gonna put you to the test
a first impression is not enough to let a judgment pass it changes fast when I call you bluff

Oh, I get the Picture - I've seen it all in Black and White
Oh, I get the Picture - funny what develops overnight

and I'm tired of playin' hide and seek
don't make promises you don't intend to keep
an honest face, can tell a lie
but when I look at you the truth shows through
I see what you deny

Oh, I get the Picture - I've seen it all in Black and White
Oh, I get the Picture - Oh, I get the Picture - I've seen it all in Black and White
Oh, I get the Picture - funny what develops overnight
Oh, I get the Picture - I've seen it all in Black and White
Oh, I get the Picture - funny what develops overnight


ain't it funny what develops overnight?
