Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Huey Lewis And The News

They’ve won the award before with Hip To Be Square [1], but I heard one of their other songs today and it reminded me that I’ve been intending on reviving this award of late…so that song, If This Is It, is this week’s feature song.

I’ve been phoning
At night and morning
I heard you say
Tell him I’m not home
Now you’re confessing
But I’m still guessing
I’ve been your fool for so, so long

Girl don’t lie
Just to save my feelings
Girl don’t cry
And tell me nothing’s wrong
Girl don’t try
To make up phony reasons
I’d rather leave than never believe

If this is it
Please let me know
If this ain’t love you’d better let me know (let me know)
If this is it
I want to know
If this ain’t love, baby
(Just say so) just say so

You’ve been thinking
And I’ve been drinking
We both know that it’s just not right
Now you’re pretending
That it’s not ending
You’ll say anything to avoid a fight

Girl don’t lie
And tell me that you need me
Girl don’t cry
And tell me nothing’s wrong
I’ll be alright
Oh, one way or another
So let me go
Or make we want to stay

If this is it
Please let me know
If this ain’t love you’d better let me know (let me know)
If this is it
I want to know
If this ain’t love, baby
(Just say so) just say so

If this is it
Please let me know
If this ain’t love you’d better let me know (let me know)
If this is it
I want to know
If this ain’t love, baby
Just say so

(If this is it, please let me know)
I wanna know
(If this is it)
If this is it
(Please let me know)
I gotta know
(If this is it)
You better
(Please let me know)

(If this is it)
If this is it
(Please let me know)
I gotta know
(If this is it)
You better
(Please let me know)
Just say so
(If this is it, please let me know)
