Porkies

Album: Technology (2018)
  • You're gonna lie to me anyway
    You're gonna lie to me anyway
    Charmer, charmer, charmer

    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    Harder, harder, harder

    And beg for more
    Shout down the devil 'til your throat's red raw

    I got my eye on you anyway
    Got my eye on you anyway
    Sharper, sharper, sharper

    You don't know what the things I've done
    You don't see where it gone wrong
    Burn all the books you burned
    Praying for you it never comes

    Few tall tales and you look giddy
    Me and my boys coming round look busy
    Me and the boys got a lot we wanna change
    And just like riding a bike
    You're telling porkies; little piggy
    Screamed down the market and cried all the way home
    Don't be about when the boys get silly
    Just like riding a bike

    You're gonna lie to me anyway
    You're gonna lie to me anyway
    Charmer, charmer, charmer

    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    Harder, harder, harder

    And beg for more
    Shout down the devil 'til your throat's red raw

    I got my eye on you anyway
    Got my eye on you anyway
    Sharper, sharper, sharper

    Who and the where and the when sounds iffy
    Who and the where and the made all of it up
    Calling you out I'm a traitorous hippy
    Just like riding a bike
    Just like riding a bike
    Just like riding a bike

    You're gonna lie to me anyway
    You're gonna lie to me anyway
    Charmer, charmer, charmer

    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    You're gonna fight with me anyway
    Harder, harder, harder

    And beg for more
    Speak of the devil knocking down my door

    I got my eye on you anyway
    Got my eye on you anyway
    Sharper, sharper, sharper

    And you don't know the things I've done
    You don't see where it gone wrong
    Bury all the books you burned
    Praying for you it never comes
    I don't know what you've been told
    And I won't guess what you been owed
    See the truth between the code
    Praying for you we save your soul Writer/s: Thomas David Doyle, Matthew Stephen, Stephen Donnelly, Dan Lancaster, Jason Keith Perry, Simon James Delaney, Robert Dami
