Tell Me, Tell Me, Tell Me Do
Tell me, tell me, tell me do,
How I fell in love with you?
We met up in an online chat,
You talked about your dog and cat.
Tell me, tell me, tell me true,
Do I mean as much to you?
We live a virtual world apart,
How did you enslave my heart?
Tell me, tell me, if you can,
Why can't I see your webcam?
You say you're female, young and sweet,
But face to face we just can't meet.
Tell me, tell me, for my sake,
Are you real or are you fake?
Maybe you aren't what you seem,
And this love game is just a scam.
Tell me, tell me, if you will,
A year from now will you love me still?
Or will you find another fool
Who thinks you are a special jewel?
Tell me, tell me, don't you lie,
Would you miss me if I die?
Or just move on without a care,
Catching others in your snare?
