lie detector test

                                            wds & music Gary M. Wollman

You know you lie so well confess 

you’d pass a lie detector test

You know you lie so much you bet

you’d pass a lie detector test 

 

Why don’t you tell the truth for once

put it all to rest

honesty takes too much guts

makes your reputation a mess 

 

(woh oh woh) it could get much worse

to that I can attest

You could turn in your own mother

without breaking a sweat 

 

Covering your own tracks made

too much of a racket

you fooled who you could

didn’t think time could track it 

 

the truth is one strength

you find you lack 

you’re on fire in hell 

 like a furnace burnin’ smokestack

You know you lie so well confess 

you’d pass a lie detector test

You know you lie so much you bet

you’d pass a lie detector test 

 

Integrity matters

but of that you’re bereft

lying to yourself

is the one skill that you’ve got left 

 

Practice makes perfect

pathetic deceiver 

lost in our midst 

conspiracy believer 

 

You believe all your lies

 & that’s all the more tragic

you make fake news look real

untruth automatic 

 

So when they strap you in

may the questions spin manic

need not bother ‘bout the facts     

you know better than to panic

 

You know you lie so well confess

you’d pass a lie detector test

You know you lie so much you bet

you’d pass a lie detector test

 

You know you lie so well confess

you’d pass a lie detector test

You know you lie so much you bet

you’d pass a lie detector test
