The Lyrics

It’s an embellished true—
The falsehood kind.
The guy said that his lover slew
But he’s lyin’,
Flat-out lyin’.

It was he who brandished
The iron. . .brought it down
On hubby’s head—bashed it—
And in a bath of blood was his crown

Now what he’s tellin’ you
Is just a line,
Some line.

It’s he who
Really slew
The dude who
Hitched the shrew; out she’s found.
He runs out there
On the stage, but the
Curtain comes down
And squeezes
The charming fellow who
Had done the crime.
