Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
As we sang it in Melbourne, also in the 40s and 50s, it went

She sat in her garden and played her guitar
He sat down beside her and smoked his cigar
He told her he loved her but oh how he lied
She said she loved him but she did not lie
And then they got married but she up and died
He went to the funeral but just for the ride
He sat on her tombstone and laughed 'til he cried
The tombstone split open and he fell inside
He went to Hades and sizzled and fried
She went to heaven and flip-flop, she flied
The moral of this song is don't smoke cigars!

Cheers, Rowan
