You can try if you want to, it doesn't really matter to me
You can talk 'til you turn blue, things are gonna be as they be
What you're really tryin' to say, that you'd lie to get your way
Better run and hide, truth is on my side today

What do you think you're doin' steppin' on somebody's ground?
What you bite I hope you're chewin', though I don't mean to put you down
What you're really gonna do, gonna ruin things for you
Well, it won't be long, things start goin' wrong, and I told you

Why, oh why, do you keep tellin' lies?
With each one you tell, a part of you dies
I can tell by the look in your eyes
You don't hear me, you just keep tellin' lies

What do you think you're doin' steppin' on somebody's ground?
What you bite I hope you're chewin', though I don't mean to put you down
What you're really tryin' to say, that you'd lie to get your way
Better run and hide, truth is on my side today

Why, oh why, do you keep tellin' lies?
With each one you tell, a part of you dies
I can tell by the look in your eyes
You don't hear me, you just keep tellin' lies

Keep tellin', you tell lies
You keep on tellin' lies
Why, oh why, do you tell lies
Don't tell lies
