Pretend



Pretend…Just for me
Just for tonight
That my Kia is a corvette
and all things are right
That I’m six foot two
That my hair is still there
And dark and wavy too

Pretend that I don’t talk
All hillbilly funny
Pretend that I’ve got
A boatload of money
Pretend that I look
Like Steve McQueen
That I still look as if
I were seventeen

That’s really not so much
That I’m asking of you
Just a little pretense
Is all you have to do

Pretend that you love me
Pretend that you’ll be true
Because I don’t have to pretend
…when it comes to you…
