Lyrics for Swear by Tim Scott / Tim Scott-McConnell (1983)

  • Swear by Tim Scott / Tim Scott-McConnell (1983)

  • Tim Scott : "Swear": http://www.tim-scott.com/discography/album.php?albumid=7

  • "Release: Sire Records - 1983

    This was my young and confused record...i wrote the songs over a couple of weeks on a little Casio keyboard...Sire heard it and offered me a deal...no use appologising for such a thing...my mistake... the good part of it was working with Richard Gottehrer ...really took me under his wing...shame we were working on the wrong kind of music..."

  • "Answer
    Dear Jim,

    I don't know if there is anyone who covered SWEAR other than the one I remember. SWEAR appeared on SHEENA EASTON's 1984 album A PRIVATE HEAVEN. A minor hit for her peaking at #80 on the Hot 100 Chart on April 6, 1985, not too many people are aware that its songwriter TIM SCOTT first recorded it in 1983 for his EP called SWEAR.

    There's your answer, TIM SCOTT in 1983. In effect, SHEENA EASTON was the one who covered it in 1984.

    Maraming salamat po!

Swear by Tim Scott / Tim Scott-McConnell

Swear

I won't bother asking you what you've done
Though the rumors all point to something going on
See the past is the past and I'm not going to dwell
But I better never catch you with someone else
So I will put it to you once and never again

Swear . . . if you want to be a lover, if you want to be a friend

Swear . . . then take five fingers and put 'em to your heart

Swear

es double-u ee ay are

Hand over heart and

Swear . . . . that you love me

Get a judge and jury
Bible to your hand
Got to tell the whole truth nothing less than that girl

Swear . . . . that you love me
Swear . . . . that you need me
Swear . . . . that you want me
Swear . . . . tell the truth

Hand over heart and

Swear . . . . that you love me

Swear! (echo)

Swear . . . . that you love me
Swear . . . . that you need me
Swear . . . . that you want me
Swear . . . . tell the truth
Then know the heart is
Swear . . . . that you love me

Get a lie detector
Strap it to you heart
Look into my eyes and tell me who you love girl

Swear . . . . that you love me
Swear . . . . that you need me
Swear . . . . that you want me
Swear . . . . tell the truth
Hand over heart and
Swear . . . . that you love me

Wan't bother asking you what you done
Though the rumors point to something going on
The past is the past and I'm not going to dwell
But I better never catch you with someone else
Put it to you once and never again
Do you want to be a lover do you want to be a friend
Now take(?) five fingers and put them to your heart
 es double-u ee ay are  don't lie don't lie

Swear . . . . do I need a judge and jury
Swear . . . . with a bible in your hand
Swear . . . . to make you tell the whole truth
Swear . . . . nothing less than that
Swear . . . . should I strap a lie detector
Swear . . . . to your heart to your heart to your heart
Swear . . . . tell(?) me that you love me
Swear . . . . don't be smart don't be smart don't be smart
Swear . . . . tell the truth
Swear . . . . tell the truth
Swear . . . . tell the truth
Swear . . . . tell the truth tell the truth
