  • The lies lies lies
    You love those lies,
    You tell them straight,
    Straight to my face
    They feel so right
    They keep you safe
    And you're so...

    Good at it, oh it comes automatic
    Lies more lies
    I can tell they're lies
    I can see right through,
    You have see-through eyes

    Knocked down like a?
    This time I won't be your dirty little secret
    Not for you, not for me, not for your other lover
    I won't be your dirty little secret

    Oh a man like you
    Keep me up at night
    You want your women at home
    And your bed on the side
    You've got a telephone girl that you carry around
    In your jean back pocket with a?
    And you're so...

    Sly about it, oh it feels automatic
    Yeah, you're so good at it
    Oh it feels automatic
    Sly about it, oh it feels automatic
    Yeah, you're so good at it
    A systematic habit

    Knocked down like a?
    This time I won't be your dirty little secret
    Tell mother, tell your father, tell your friends, tell your teacher
    I won't be your dirty little secret
    I won't be your dirty little secret

    Knocked down like a?
    This time I won't be your dirty little secret
    Not for you, not for me, not for your other lover
    I won't be your dirty little secret
    I won't be your dirty little secret

    Knocked down like a?
    This time I won't be your dirty little secret
    Tell your mother, tell your brother, tell your friends, tell your teacher
    I won't be your dirty little secret
    I won't be your dirty little secret
    I won't be, I won't
    I won't be, I won't
    I won't, I won't
    I won't be knocked down Writer/s: Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W Marker
