Bad Things Happen When You Lie


I know that many feel a little white lie never hurts but just read the admonishment to tell the truth and what follows when one doesn't  especially in the affairs of the heart. Perhaps the poet who wrote these lyrics says it all. 



Be sure its true when you say, “I love you”
It’s a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart, I’ll die
So, be sure it’s true when you say, “I love you”
__________________ It’s a sin to tell a lie


Look what happens when one doesn't tell the truth.



Well, cross my heart and I hope to die
I’ll never, never, never tell another white lie
Took a little doll out on a date last night
Next to her, Gravel Gertie would have looked alnght
Now, I’m between the devil and the deep blue sea
‘Cause I said, “Baby, you look good to me”

I told her! loved her but, oh, how I lied
And now, she’s gettin’ set to be my blushin’ bride
If she leads me to the altar, then I’m sunk
‘Cause I can’t tell the preacher I was drunk
So, Lord have mercy on a no-’count sinner
Give me one more chance to let another guy win her
Cross my heart and I hope to die
I’ll never, never, never tell another white lie



So!



Be sure it’s true when you say, “I love you”
If you break my heart, I’ll die
So, be sure it’s true when you say, “I love you
_________ It’s a sin to tell a lie
_______ It’s a sin to tell a lie
