Well o[A]nce I was persuaded
To [D]open up my head
I [A]told them how it was
And went and [E]got it wrong instead
I s[A]aid would you believe me
I[D]f you only knew
I[A]'d been stealing everything
This [E]conversation's th[A]rough
A5 C5 D5 E5*
The boy cried hang him at three
E5* D5 C5 G5 A5
I saw him on the front page laughing at me
A5 C5 D5 E5*
He worked in a fairground, in a tall hat
E5* D5
He's a liar, he's a liar
And a g[C5]ood one[G5] at t[A5]hat
A5 C5 D5 E5*
Say what you want to, say what you will
E5* D5 C5 G5 A5
Write your number on my telephone bill
A5 C5 D5 E5*
Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule
E5* D5 C5 G5 E5 G5 A5 E5*
I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel
E5 G5 A5 E5*
E5 G5 A5 E5*

[E5] [G5]  
So I [A]told them all I could
About w[D]hat could they expect
But I l[A]ost my sense of smell
And I g[E]ained my self-respect
They t[A]old me I was curious
I t[D]old them they were slow
And he a[A]sked me where I get this stuff
I t[E]old them I don't k[A]now
A5 C5 D5 E5*
The boy cried whoopi de dee
E5* D5
There's a woman with a moustache
Who w[C5]on't let[G5] me [A5]be
She was b[A5]orn on a [C5]Monday
D5 E5*
She's a hundred and four
E5* D5
She's a liar, she's a liar
And a l[C5]ittle [G5]bit [A5]more
A5 C5 D5 E5*
Say what you want to, say what you will
E5* D5 C5 G5 A5
Write your number on my telephone bill
A5 C5 D5 E5*
Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule
E5* D5 C5 G5 E5 G5 A5 E5*
I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel
