When you tell one lie
by Paul Hatch
When you tell one lie, it leads to another
So you tell two lies to covereach other
Then you tell three lies and, oh brother,
You’re in trouble up to your ears!
So you tell your four lies to try to protect you
Then you tell five lies so folks won’t suspect you
Then you tell six lies and you’ll collect
A life file filled with worries and fears
Cause you can’t remember how many lies you’ve told
And half the things you say aren’t true
And sometime you’ll slip up, trip up, and then
Whatever will become of you?
So you lie and lie without even trying
And each lie you tell will keep multiplying
‘Till the whole wide world will know you’re lying
Then you’ll be
And you should!
When you lie, your closing the door
On everything good.
