TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 1994 – 2002

If it’s too good to be true, that’s right!  It is too good and it’s not true.  The chorus tells the tale.

Do you wake up in a daze?
Has your world acquired a rosey haze?
Have life’s hard edges been filed down?
Did all this happen when your baby got back in town?….
Do you thank your lucky star
that brought your baby back to where you are
Here’s a question and a clue:
Is this love just too good to be true?

Chorus:
Too good to be true is not really that good
and it’s really not true
Too good to be true is not really that good
and it’s really not true
If it’s too good to be true,
that’s right — it is too good and it’s not true

She’s a jittery chattery
thin little concubine
edgy with a cinched-in waist
little sister / little woman / little wife with an eager face
think twice!
I’ve got some news for you
This is too good to be true

Chorus

He’s a tall dark and handsome
big hunk of manliness
noble with a mane of hair
Reassuring / prepossessing / older brother with a regal air
think twice!
I’ve got some news for you
This is too good to be true

Chorus
