Maybe I Lied

Maybe I Lied

Maybe I said Yes,
I couldn’t care less:
Maybe I lied.
What if I meant No?
That would be low!
Maybe I lied.
How’re you gonna prove it?
Who are you tryin’ to kid?
What are you gonna do to me if I did?

Call it heads or tails,
if all else fails,
you can decide.
Could be either/or –
nothing’s for sure –
maybe I lied.
Maybe you were mistaken.
Maybe you heard me wrong.
Maybe you’re just a fool that got strung along!

[kazoo break]

Have it your own way –
what can I say?
Maybe I tried.
Even if it’s true,
what’s it to you?
Maybe I lied.
After the heartache’s over,
after the hurt’s all gone,
Who’s gonna swear to anything that went on?
