lyrics

BIG LIE - words & music by Nate Butler and Tales of Young Robert.
Blueprint from a tangled mind
(You talk an awful lot)
You want to make a fortune
And I, me , moi, yo ... yo mama!
Never thought I'd sing "mama"
She didn't want me to come to parties like this (hit it!)
You're gonna tell the truth tonight -- right?

Try to rip off all my clothes, shove my body up your nose
Provide you with another dose, the only defense
For poison like this outside of my fence
Big Lie is coming, and I'm pretty tense
No sense in lying under false pretense ... "YOU COMIN'?!"
Why lie?

Got to go, but I can't leave
(You talk an awful lot)
And what a big decision; and what isn't a big decision?
Make it with big precision
I never wanted to come parties like this (hit it!)
You're gonna tell the truth tonight -- right?

Try to rip off all my clothes, shove my body up your nose
Provide you with another dose, the only defense
For poison like this outside of my fence
Big Lie is coming, and I'm pretty tense
No sense in lying under false pretense ...

Why lie?
Why lie?
