You Better Let That Liar Alone

Just let me tell you how a liar will do
He’s always coming with something new
He’ll steal your heart with false pretence
Making out like he’s your bosom friend
   If you don’t want to get in trouble
   If you don’t want to get in trouble
   If you don’t want to get in trouble
   Better let that liar alone

When a liar takes the notion to bend the truth
He’ll lay around his neighbors and get the news
And nearly every day when you look out
You can see that liar coming to your house

He’ll tell you such a lie it’ll surprise your mind
He’ll mix a little truth for to make it shine
When he gets his business fixed just right
Then that liar’s going to cause a fight

He studies up a lie he’ll tell it so smooth
You’ll think absolutely that it must be true
And he’ll urge you out for to trace the tale
And if you don’t mind you’ll be put in jail

When everything’s in perfect peace
Then comes that liar with his deceit
A hypocrite liar both keeps up a fuss
They’re both very bad but a liar’s the worse
