Straighten Up (& Lie Right)
Dallas Wayne, Robbie Fulks

V.1
WELL YOU SAID THAT YOU'D BE HOME EARLY

YOU'RE TRUE TO YOUR WORD AGAIN

CAUSE IT'S 8 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING

AND HERE YOU COME CRAWLIN' IN

WELL HONEY THAT'S A HELL OF A STORY 

BUT I'M AFRAID IT JUST WON'T FLY

CAUSE NOTHIN' BUT A FOOL COULD SWALLOW

SUCH A HALF-COOKED ALIBI

 

CH.

YOU BETTER STRAIGHTEN UP AND LIE RIGHT

CAUSE I KNOW WHERE YOU WERE LAST NIGHT

DON'T YOU GIVE ME THAT FLAT TIRE, WASN'T NEAR A PHONE

OUT OF GAS, DIDN'T HAVE A QUARTER, COULDN'T CALL HOME

THAT OLD LINE WON'T WORK ON ME, HONEY I KNOW YOU TOO WELL

YOU BETTER STRAIGHTEN UP AND LIE RIGHT BOY

CAUSE IT'S THE LAST ONE YOU'RE GONNA TELL

 

V.2

SHE SAID, I COULD TELL YOU HAD A GOOD TIME

ISN'T THAT CHANEL NUMBER 5

BABY YOU THINK YOU GOT LUCKY

WELL YOU'RE LUCKY JUST TO BE ALIVE

IF THAT OLD TUNE THAT YOU'RE HUMMIN'

IS THE BEST THAT YOU CAN DO

I GOT A MIND TO LOOSEN UP THOSE TEETH YOU BEEN LYIN' THROUGH

 

REPEAT CH.

 

V.3

SHE SAID, YOU COULD HAVE BEEN TRAPPED BY A UFO

OR HAD A RUN-IN WITH THE LAW

OR BEEN CHASED THROUGH THE WOODS ALL NIGHT LONG 

BY A PSYCHO WITH A CHAINSAW

YEAH YOU COULD HAVE GONE OUT ON A GOOD ONE

BUT YOU HAVEN'T EVEN GOT THE BRAINS 

GUESS YOUR BODY SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE NOTHIN' 

THAT YOUR BIG MOUTH COULDN'T EXPLAIN

 

REPEAT CH.
