    Liar, liar, pants on fire
    Your nose is longer than a telephone wire

    Ask me, baby, why I'm sad
    You've been out all night, know you've been bad
    Don't tell me different, know it's a lie
    Come kill me, honey, see how I cry

    Why must you hurt me, do what you do
    Listen here, girl, can't you see I love you
    Make a little effort, try to be true
    I'll be happy, not so blue

    If you keep on tellin' me those lies
    Still goin' out with other guys
    There'll come a day I'll be gone
    Take my advice, won't be long

    When that day comes, won't be mad
    Be free of you, but I'll still be sad
    In spite of your cheatin', still love you so
    I'll be unhappy if I let you go Show less
