You know they're out there saying bad things about you but you can't prove it. Paranoia? Maybe... but if it's really happening than this song helps to relieve the burden.


Tellin' Lies
By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright © 2012

What ever happened
so long ago
Time to get over it
don't you know

telling lies
to make yourself look good
feeding the gossip
in the neighborhood

you're not happy
without a dog to kick
when the truth don't work
you do something sick

you're always sneaking
round behind my back
doing me damage
playing me for a sap

exactly what you're telling
no one will say
exactly what you're selling
will come out some day

the truth will be told
when you're dead and gone
everyone will know
that you been doing me wrong

the world is getting smaller
your lies are getting taller
hurting me won't make you a star
hitting me when I'm down
might work for you now
in the long run it won't get you far

stop telling lies about me
stop making up stories
that should not be believed
stop telling lies about me
why don't you just leave me alone
why don't you just go back home
