The Great Pretender lyrics

THE GREAT PRETENDER

“The Great Pretender”

They call me The Great Pretender
Cos I’m always in disguise
Half of what I say might be the truth
But half of that might be lies

Now I dont mean to mislead you
So I’ll tell you from the start
Take everything I say with a grain of salt
Cos one day I’m gonna break your heart

You better get right now while the gettins good
I swear youre gonna thank me one day
Cause Im The Great Pretender
Thats what I say

If there’s a heart left to break I’ll break it
And make the tears fall just like rain
I’ll lie to you and say I’m sorry
Then turn around and do it all again

But then you can’t say I didn’t warn ya
Cos it’s plain for you to see
I always knew you were way much better
Than to hang with a guy like me

You better run while you can, while you still got legs
I swear you’re gonna thank me one day
Cause I’m The Great Pretender.
Thats what I say!
(piano solo)

Now the truth is that I’m a liar
I’m a counterfeit $3.00 bill
If you think your love’s gonna change my ways
I can tell you it never will

Yes, they call me The Great Pretender
Gonna you just one more chance
If you want to turn me into an honest man
You better give me some sweet romance

Sweet romance!
Sweet romance!
Just gimme that sweet romance!
Sweet romance!
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you.

You better git right now while the gittins good
I swear you’re gonna thank me one day
Cause I’m the Great Pretender.
Thats what I say.
(ad lib section into fade out)

I got a ring and a job and a Cadillac
And a couple million bucks for a sweet love shack
Im true and faithful as the day is long
Just gimme sweet romance and I will bang your gong.

Im The Great Pretender!
