LITTLE LIES

 

Jimmy sits still, looking at his feet, thinking of what he will say, now that heís been indiscreet,

His wife knew it all along, but never would she say, itís just another little lie, that gets her though her day.

 

Those little lies, that we all hide, deep underneath our skin,

You have them too, just like I do, theyíll come out in the end.

 

Janeís not very bright, but thatís all right, sheís lovely just the same,

So cute and nice, no bad advice, too bad sheís slightly lame.

 

Those little lies, that we all hide, to keep them in the dark,

The jokes on you, cause they all knew, right from the very start.

 

Tims a little thin, no rent for him, his paychecks spent again,

Says his mothers sick, said it too quick, the landlord smiles and asks him when.

 

A little lie, just gone awry, no harm intended there,

Iíll go confess, forget the rest, now all is good and fair.

 

That stately politician then, seems just like many men, except he woke up in someone elseís glen.

Heís not been exposed, the dirty louse, still throwing rocks at anotherís house.

A dirty lie, and not so little, but donít think that the scores yet settled,

Someday heíll get, his just rewards, we all will, in our separate wards.

 

Those little lies that we all share, will come out someday in the air,

And if weíre quick and sharp of wit, weíll still dance awhile, in that sand of quick.

But youíll will miss your step, and down youíll go, to the land of reckoning, deep down below.

 

Those little lies, yes arenít they dear, to help you out if troubleís near,

Not me, of course, Iím saintly pure, Iíll be one of the first thatís burned.

 

Those little lies, that we all hide, deep underneath our skin,

You have them too, just like I do, theyíll come out in the end.
