Have you ever had the feeling people were talking about you behind your back? Paranoid? Maybe... That is what this songs about. It's pretty much a basic blues structure with a bit of Ted thrown in for good measure. It has a very strong catchy hook, and the lyrics are delivered in a passionate conversational style. That is very easy to relate to. If you get angry at people trashing you behind your back than sing this song and you'll feel better.


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
