The Lyrics

I was able to get this sung by a pro, a first for me!
If you're interested, click the link: LINK TO SUNG VERSION HERE
I was alright—I had style
I could smile Bro-kaw’s smile
But mis-speaking that night
Got all those vets uptight
When I said - I’d been shot down

Faked Iraqi shell’s
Now my PR hell
‘Cause I’d been ly-y-ing—on the news!
Ly-y-y-ing—on the news!

So I—said, “I’m wrong”
Then Katrina stormed along
And caught me lying, lying
Lying, ly-y-y-ing

And now you understand
I never did ‘crash land’
Yeah, I was lying

I’m getting slammed - getting gored
Twitter’s newest - Rob Ford
And Lester Holt’s aglow
And now I’ve left the show

But, viewers, what can I do-oo-oo?
‘Cause you don’t trust me
Ditto NBC
Ly-y-y-ing—on the news!
Ly-y-y-ing—on the news!

Yes, my rep’s gone
And from this moment on
You’ll find me crying, crying
Sighing, crying
Yeah, cryyyy-ing!
