(Strummer/Jones)

Deny, you’re such a liar
You won’t know the truth if it bit you in the eye
Deny, you’re such a liar
You’re selling you no-no all the time

An’ you said we were going out to the 100 Club
Then you said “it ain’t my scene” then you turned up alone
Then you turned up alone

Deny, you’re such a liar
You won’t know the truth if it bit you in the street
Deny, you’re such a liar
You’re selling you no-no all the time

Then said you’d given it up
Gone an’ kicked it in the head
You said you ain’t had none for weeks
Baby I seen your arms
Baby I seen your arms

Deny, you’re such a liar
You won’t know the truth if it bit you in the eye
Deny, you’re such a liar
You’re selling you no-no all the time

Do you think I’m a raving idiot?
Just got off the boat
Step in live, sign this form
Baby ain’t got hope
You ain’t got a hope

[Backing vocal of ‘Whadda Liar’ [What A Liar] begins one line above ‘Deny’ and carries throughout the end speak-sing rant, fading out with the song]
Deny
You’re such a liar
Deny
Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies
Let’s here it for truth
You know like in the 12p comic
In a room filled with screams
A-with ice cream
Boy meets girl
The promptly gets run over
Oh, everybody’s fine
But I don’t know why
I’m a fool, I can’t control
I’ve read a-one to many books
I belief everything I read
What they’ve written in the Slutsville (?) paper
Deny
You’re such a lie
