Lyrics

May this lovely letter
Reach its destination
(If only...)

Question one is:
Why do you pretend that you like me?
Oh phoney

See how the outside
Contradicts what's inside
Ooh, who can make Hitler seem like a bus conductor?
You do, oh phoney, you do

You sing a lovely song to scale
And the words spell out my name
Oh phoney

But then you kick me down below
'Cause you know it won't show
How could you?

See how the outside
Contradicts what's inside
Ooh, Who can make Hitler seem like a bus conductor?

You do, oh phoney
Oh phoney, you do

You do, oh phoney
Oh phoney, you do

You do, oh phoney
Oh phoney, you do
