i wasn’t born yesterday lyrics – hall & oates

i forgot just how to feel

city scene ain’t no big deal

soul deep so ya say

none of that takes my breath away

oh i always seem to see

both sides when they disagree

and neither one seems right

too much city life

is messin’ with my inner lite

and everybody’s too cool to believe

i wasn’t born yesterday

you should know by now

so let’s set the record straight

and we can carry on

i wasn’t born yesterday

i’ll find out

i ain’t innocent

lots of room for me to doubt

i never learned to cry

so far so extreme

if i’m jaded, you’re naive

but behind that cynic’s steady gaze

there’s a wide-eyed lover drink for days

oh i don’t want to be

one of those guys who only sees

the joke behind the lie

too much city life

may i don’t know wrong from right

but baby i ain’t too cool to believe

i wasn’t born yesterday

i don’t die for love

just let the record speak

then i carry on

i wasn’t born yesterday

i don’t die for love

it’s never too late to come of age

never too late

oh i wanna learn to cry

/ hall oates lyrics
