(m. Crenshaw)

It's been no fun learning lesson number one
Nobody can share my troubles, this I know
And let me tell you I learned a lesson, here I go
Don't you know (oh no) it's just as sure as the rising sun
Don't you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
I look around the room and know the hotel in one glance
And it seems that I've arrived at a battleground just by chance
Clothes thrown everywhere mirrors broken and damage done
And I'm all alone thinkin' back on lesson number one
I remember being told to be careful
That telling even one lie
Would surely lead to more problems
Of alarming dimensions
I wish I had paid attention
Clothes thrown everywhere mirrors broken and damage done
And I'm all alone thinkin' back on lesson number one
To lie to your lover is a sorry losing game
To lie is a violation and a shame
Don't you know (oh no) it's just as sure as the rising sun
Don't you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
Don't you know (oh no) it's just as sure as the rising sun
Don't you know (oh no) to tell the truth that's lesson number one
Don't you know (oh no) it's just as sure as the rising sun
Don't you know (oh no) to tell the truth is lesson number one
Robert crenshaw: drums
Tony garnier: stand-up bass
