[C]You say your love is [Em]bonafide,

Oh, I can't take another heartache
Though you say oh my friend, I'm at my wit's end
You say your love is bonafide,
but that don't coincide
With the things that you do and when I ask you to be nice
You say you've got to be...

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, got to be cruel, got to be cruel to be kind



Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
to have you knock me back down
Again and again and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be...

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, got to be cruel, got to be cruel to be kind

Ooh ooh ooh, ooh.. ooh... ooh...

Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
to have you knock me back down
Again and again and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be...

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, got to be cruel, got to be cruel to be kind
