Don't Put Me On

put-on n. Slang

  1. A deceptive outward appearance.

  2. The act of teasing or misleading someone, especially for amusement.

  3. Something, such as a prank, intended as a hoax or joke; a spoof.

    As in, DJ Mesa told us she was going to play more blues on this show, but she was just putting us on. 

    Briefly, related sayings might include:

    Are you having me on? (To kid or mislead someone )

    Are you taking the mickey out of me? (Teasing or making fun of someone)

    He’s pulled a fast one. (To trick or mislead someone)

    One great thing about music and songwriting is how it allows for colloquialism and slang to be developed into a great song. Don’t put me on, just don’t do it.
