The Lyrics

Did you ever say you had a good time?
Make one up to save your lyin' behind.
That's pretty easy but it's not very kind.
Did you ever say you had a good time?

Did you ever your true feelings deny?
Smile "yes" to one but let your true wishes slide.
There's so many chains there and cares you must hide.
Did you ever your true feelings deny?

At times dare to give big fat lies, shoot, feel real funny.
The air should be clear, not empty, but sunny.
So just give a wink when you go out the door.
You part, all puffed up by your lousy little whirl.

But then your host asks if, (he's trying to be kind).
"Did you have fun?"(and, yes, you're trying to hide).
There's so many answers, you fear you will lie.
Did you ever really finally decide?

And it looks as if you did finally decide.
You're done with his questions and now you can ride.
There were so many answers you feared you would lie.
It looks as if you did finally decide.

At times you really can leave the moment their eyes do err.
But then they are attracted like band-aid on blister.
You think why the bother, you're walkin' the line.
You say, "I'd better go home, now. Say, you were so kind."

Did you ever say you had a good time?
Make one up to save your lyin' behind.
That's pretty easy but it's not very kind.
Did you ever say you had a good time?

Wow! An Adagio parody I understand! My medication must be wearing off or something. I really like the OS too. It was good for me - was it good for you too?

Did you ever give a Five as a lie?
The Turtle won't do that; nor truth he deny
He loves this OS and rates parody high
He will give you Fives, and that is no lie!
