How could you believe me when I said "I Love You"
When you know I've been a liar all my life?
I've had that reputation since I was a youth -
You must have been insane to think I'd ever tell the truth.
How could you believe me when I said we'd marry,
When you know I'd rather die than that have a wife?
I know I said, "I'll make you mine,"
But who would know that you would go for that old line?
How could you believe me when I said "I Love You"
When you know I've been a liar, a good for nothing liar,
All my good for nothin' life?

(Bridge:)
Girl:  You said I'd have ev'rything, a beautiful diamond ring,
A bungalow by the sea...
Boy:  You're really naive to ever believe
A full-of-baloney phoney like me.

Girl: Say, how about the time you went to Indiana?
Boy: I was lyin', I was down in Alabam!
Girl: You said you had some bus'ness you had to complete.
Boy: What I was doin' I would be a cad to repeat.
Girl: How about the evenings you were with your mother?
Boy: I was rompin' with another honey lamb.
Girl: To think, you swore our love was real!
Boy: But, Baby, let us not forget that I'm a heel!
How could you believe me when I said I love you,
When you know I've been a liar, a good for nothing liar,
All my good for nothin' life?

Girl: And how could you believe me when I said, "I love you"
When you know I've been a liar all my life?
I've had that reputation since I was a youth -
You must have been insane to think I'd ever tell the truth.
And how could you believe me when I said we'd marry,
When you know I'd rather hang than be a wife?
I know I said, "I'll make you mine" -
But, honey, you're so young, and that's an old, old line.
How could you believe me when I said "I Love You"
When you know I've been a liar, a good for nothing liar,
All my good for nothin' life?
