Everyday Liars

Everyday Liars

There’s the type of man who tells you
That he never had a fight
With his wife, and that she lets him
Stay out late most ev’ry night.
There’s the man who states with fervor
That he never owed a cent;
That he never yet has borrowed;
The he never yet has lent.
There’s the type of man who claims he
Never lied and never would;
And he’s lying as he says it,
On the truth he never stood.
They are awful and they bore you
But the man we love to hate,
Is the man who says, “I’d rather
Lie than to prevaricate.”

The Carroll Herald – Mar. 10, 1909
