Hall & Oates - Say It Isn't So
Words and music by Daryl Hall
Say it isn't so painful to tell me that you're dissatisfied.
Last time I asked you I really got a lame excuse. I know
that you lied.
Now wicked things can happen...you see 'em goin' down in
Em7 A7sus4 A9
But when you play in a quiet way that bites it even more.
Tell me what you want yeah I'll do it baby I promise right now.
Who propped you up when you were stopped low motivation had you on the ground.
I know your first reaction you slide away hide away goodbye.
But if there's a doubt maybe I can give out a thousand
reasons why you have to say it isn't so...
Bm Em7b5 A7
(it isn't so). Say it isn't so (it isn't so).
Dm Bm Em7b5
Now say it isn't so (it isn't so). Say it isn't so (it isn't
The next verse and chorus have the same chord changes.
Lyrics as follows:
We like to be the strangers at the party, two rebels in a shell.
You like to move with the best of them you know we move so well.
Don't need someone to lean on. I know that there's an open door.
But if I'm faced with being replaced I want you even more so baby say it isn't so...
Bridge: Switches between Amaj7 and G6 for three bars.

Vocal ad lib, repeat until fade.
