Don't Believe A Word

Patrick Cannell 2013
He told you of his pitiable needs.
He gave you nothing but muddiness and weeds.
He craved your mercy and threw himself thereat.
Weak as water but I saw through his act.

Don't believe a word
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
It's probably not true.
Don't believe a word.
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
'Cause it's not true.

He slid up to you like some sycophantic snake
And filled your ears with tales of old heart ache.
He must have tried it two dozen times before.
Two dozen fools and you are just one more.

Don't believe a word
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
It's probably not true.
Don't believe a word.
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
'Cause it's not true.

Some go for bravado,
Some bare their souls,
Eating holes into your defence,
All pretence, viva la difference.

He told you of his pitiable past
But how he's changed now, oh how he's changed at last
And all he needs is someone who understands.
You understand it, that's why you wash your hands.

Don't believe a word
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
It's probably not true.
Don't believe a word.
Of what he said to you.
Don't believe a word,
'Cause it's not true.
