Those Lies Lyrics - Boz Scaggs

"Those Lies"

First time I saw you, you had that look in your eye
Don't play me cheap girl, cause you know I'm not shy
You always walkin' and you talkin' some stuff
I found out last night, well I had enough

You're always tryin' to tell me some lie
Don't know why you're always trying to tell a lie

I call you last night,on the phone
I left a message, after the tone
You sister told me, you'd be back soon
I saw you next day, in the afternoon

You're always tryin' to tell me your lies
I don't know why you're always trying to tell me some lie

First day you told me, your name was Elaine
Next day I found out, it really was Jane
You gonna teach me, water goes up hill
There ain't no greenback, on a dollar bill

Always gonna to try to sell me lies
Don't know why you're always trying to tell a lie

You got a lie on your lie
A trick on your trick
It's only in your own mind
That you get away slick

We saw you standing, at the scene of the crime
You tried to play it off, said you weren't there at the time
Whatever happens, to come from your lips
I'm only saying, that I won't trip

You're always gonna try to tell a lie
Don't know why you're always trying to tell some lie

I call last night again, on the phone
I left a message, after the tone
You sister told me, you had a bad cough
You're boss will hire you right back, you just got laid off

Always trying to tell me your lie
I don't know why you're always trying to sell me some lie
Don't know why you're always, sayin' something you don't really mean
Something extreme
It's always got to be your lies
