Crackpot History And The Right To Lie

Album: Friend Or Foe (1982)
  • People come people go, how long I?ll stay I just don't know
    When showbiz is a dirty word, I hope my time will come
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    People love people hate, for my downfall they just can't wait
    When showbiz is a dirty word, I hope my time will come
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    I wish that everyone could see a show by Liza Minnelli
    Such a marvelous lady with talent by the ton
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    People lie people hurt, like to read their Sunday dirt
    So every Jekyll needs a Hyde to blame the business on
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    Every rebel that I've met say they're going to die and yet
    I see them now and they ain't dead yet, and pushing forty one
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    Pumping is a splendid gift, I hope that you will catch my drift
    Some like pumping in the lift, just like the Scottish tongs
    Crackpot history and the right to lie

    There is nothing like the sound of a nicely laundered pound
    Trying to collect around forty million
    Crackpot history and the right to lie
