Fats Waller – It's A Sin To Tell A Lie lyrics

It's A Sin To Tell A Lie
The Ink Spots
Written by Billy Mayhew

Charted in 1935 at # 1 by Fats Waller and # 5 by Victor Young
Charted at # 7 in 1955 by Somethin' Smith and the Redheads
Charted at # 99 in 1964 by Tony Bennett

Be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of heart have been broken
Just because these words were spoken

I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie

Monologue: Now, ya better be sure that it's true when you say "I LUV ya."
Honey chile, don'tcha know it's a sin to tell a lie? Whole lotta hearts have been
Broken. Ya know why they were broken? Just for these foolish little words that
Were spoken. Ya know what they were? "I LUV ya, I LUV ya." Darlin', ya know
Doggone well I love ya and if ya break my heart I've got to die. So ya better be
Sure that it's true when you come runnin' up here sayin' "I LUV ya" 'cause it's a sin
To tell a lie.

I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
