Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
Subject: Lyr Add: OH HOW SHE LIED TO ME (from Spike Jones)
What a difference a change of gender makes! We can now find many more versions of a song that formerly seemed very obscure. This one is on YouTube and Spotify:

As recorded by Spike Jones on "Not Your Standard Spike Jones Collection"

Don't ask me why I look worried,
And why there's a tear in my eye,
For I fell in love with a sweet turtledove,
And I'm such an innocent guy.

She told me she loved me, but oh, how she lied!
Oh, how she lied! Oh, how she lied!
My poor heart is broken, and oh, how I cried!
She made a fool of me.

She said my money would lead me astray,
So to protect me she took it away.
She said she'd return it on some rainy day,
But oh, how she lied to me!

On last Christmas Eve she made me very cross.
I cried my poor eyes out and it was because
She tried to tell me there was no Santy Claus,
But she falsified—
She misrepresented—
She discarded the truth—
She prevaricated—
She fabricated a story—
She tried to deceive me—
And on top of that,
Oh, my, how she lied to me!
