The Who

Say It Ain't So Joe

Lyrics

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
That's not what I wanna hear Joe
Ain't I got a right to know

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
I'm sure they're telling us lies Joe
Please tell us it ain't so

They told us that our hero has played his trump card
He doesn't know how to go on.
We're clinging to his charm and he turned and smiled
But the good old days are gone

The army and the empire may be falling apart
And the money had gotten scarce
One man's word held the country together
But the truth is getting fierce

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
We pinned our hopes on you Joe
And they're ruining our show

(Ooh Baby)
Don't you think where gonna get burned
(Ooh Baby)
Don't you think where gonna get turned
Where going to get burned
Where going to get learned
Where going to get turned
Where going to get burned
Where going to get burned
Ooh learn
Turn
Burned
Ooh burned
Yea

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
That's not what I want to hear Joe please tell us it ain't so
Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
I'm sure they're telling us lies Joe and I've got a right to know

They told us that our hero has played his trump card
He doesn't know how to go on.
We're clinging to his charm and he turned and smiled
But the good old days are gone

The army and the empire may be falling apart
And the money had gotten scarce
One mans word held the country together
But the truth is getting fierce

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
That's not what I want to hear Joe and I've got a right to know

Say it ain't so, Joe please
Say it ain't so
They keep on telling us lies Joe please tell us it ain't so

Say
Say it ain't so
Say it ain't so
Cause I've got a right to know
