Song of the Day
May 21, 2017
When something in my history is found
Which contradicts the views that I propound
Or shows that I perhaps am not the guy I claim to be
Here's what I usually do

I lie
I simply boldly falsify
I look the other feller in the eye
And just deny, deny, deny
I lie

I don't apologize. Not me. Instead
I say I never said the things I said
Nor did the things some people saw me do
When confronted by some things they know are true

I lie
I simply boldly falsify
I look the other feller in the eye
And just deny, deny, deny
I lie

I hate those weasel words some slickies use
To blur their past or muddy up their views
Not me. I'm blunt. One thing that makes me great
Is that I'll never dodge nor obfuscate

I lie
I simply boldly falsify
I look the other feller in the eye
And just deny, deny, deny
I lie
