To Tell The Truth I'd Tell A Lie
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Your beauty is beyond compare
I just cannot help but stare
I'm not married, I swear
And I really am a millionaire
No, it is not just hot air
Life would never be unfair
We would make a really great pair
I would take you everywhere

PRE-CHORUS
Of course, I was thinkin' to myself...

CHORUS
To tell the truth, I'd tell a lie
If I needed to, I'd tell it twice
Yes, I'd tell a falsehood
I'd do anything I could

VERSE
I don't see why you would care
If I bought you bikini beachwear
I'm just rich and I want to share
I just love your big [long] blonde hair
You'd be everything to me
My yacht would take us out to sea
I'd take you to the snow to ski
We'd be all that we could be

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
Yes, you can see my divorce decree
It was fair I'm sure you'll agree
I'd help you get on TV
You could make your own CD
Let me buy you another beer
And let me whisper in your ear
How much I want to hold you near
Of course, I am sincere

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
You need not have such a long face
I just took a lease on this place
While my mansion gets a whole new face
I just settled another big case
Sure, darlin,' you can stay here tonight
