Just let me tell you how a liar will do
He's always coming with something new
He'll steal your heart with false pretense
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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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
