Fratellis, The - Tell Me A Lie Lyrics




Aahaahaha [6x]

Well once I was peruaded to open up my head
I told them how it was and went and got it wrong instead
I said would you believe me if you only knew
I'd been stealing everything this conversations through

And the boy cried hang him at three
I saw him on the front page laughing at me
He worked in a fairground in a tall hat
He's a liar he's a liar and a good one at that
Say what you want to say what you will
Write your number on my telephone bill
Walk like a monkey kick like a mule
I could be your beggar but i'd rather be just as cruel

So I told them all I could about what could they expect
But I lost my sense of smell and I gained myself respect
They told me I was curious I told them they were slow
They asked me were I get this stuff I told them I don't know

And the boy cried whoopy de dee
There's a woman with a mustache who won't let me be
Though she was born on a monday
She's a hundred and four
She's a liar she's a liar and a little bit more
Say what you want to say what you will
Write your number on my telephone bill
Walk like a monkey kick like a mule
I could be your beggar but i'd rather be just as cruel

And the boy cried hang him at three
I saw him on the front page laughing at me
He worked in a fairground in a tall hat
He's a liar he's a liar and a good one at that
Say what you want to say what you will
Write your number on my telephone bill
Walk like a monkey kick like a mule
I could be your beggar but i'd rather be just as cruel

    Well, once I was persuaded to open up my head
    I told them how it was and went and got it wrong instead
    I said, would you believe me if you only knew
    I'd been stealing everything, this conversation's through
    And the boy cried, hang him at three
    I saw him on the front page, laughing at me
    He worked in a fairground in a tall hat
    He's a liar, he's a liar, a good one at that
    Say what you wanna, say what you will
    Write your number on my telephone bill
    Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule
    I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel
    So I told them all I could about what could they expect
    But I lost my sense of smell and I gained my self-respect
    They told me I was curious, I told them they where slow
    And they asked me where I get this stuff, I told them I don't know
    And the boy cried whopie-didi
    There's a women with a mustache who won't let me be
    Though she was born on a Monday, she's a hundred and four
    She's a liar, she's a liar, a little bit more
    Say what you wanna, say what you will
    Writes her number on my telephone bill
    Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule
    I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel
    And the boy cried, hang him at three
    Saw him on the front page, laughing at me
    He worked in a fairground in a tall hat
    He's a liar, he's a liar, a good one at that
    Say what you wanna, say what you will
    Writes her number on my telephone bill
    Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule
    I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel
