lyrics

No, her father musn’t know.
She tells him that she won’t
be going anywhere.
And oh, her brother mustn’t hear.
I can’t come to the door—
she’ll meet me in Times Square.

So what am I to make of her pretending
she hardly even knows me?
It doesn’t take a cynic to surmise
that if she’s lying to her brother
and she’s lying to her father,
it’s likely that she’s lying to her friend.

But no, I just don’t understand.
I don’t know how they are—
it’s all so complicated.
And tonight, I can come to the apartment—
her family took the car
to their house upstate.

So what, do I think I am the exception,
the one with whom she’s honest?
I’d have to be a fool to not surmise
that if she’s lying to her brother
and she’s lying to her father,
it’s likely that she’s lying to her friend.

If she’s lying to her brother
and lying to her father,
it’s likely that she’s lying to her friend.
