# Glorious Fool

Written by:

Out of the west came a glorious fool;
He tried to impress me with furious cool.
He lied but inside,
I knew just what he was trying.

He lied to his mother
And lied to the rest;
He lied to his brother
Who loved him the best.
He lied to himself,
I believe that he lied to my children.

They say that half the lies he tells you are not true.
They say that half the lies he tells you are not - true.
Half the lies he tells you are not true;
You know that half the lies he tells you are not true.

You've come the white house.
You walked through the white door
And come to the white building,
Sleep on the white house floor.

You've come to the wrong people,
Come to the wrong floor, yeah.
Knocked on the wrong window,
Come through the wrong door, he.

Watching a person,
Watching him leave;
Watching a Christian,
Watching a thief.
You can watch what you want, when you will,
But you can't watch a liar.

[scat singing]
... even lied to your children.

They say that half the lies he tells you are not - true.
They say that half the lies he tells you are not true.
They say that half the lies he tells you are not true at all;
They say that half the lies he tells you are not true.

Out of the west came this pure fool;
He tried to impress me with his cool.
He lied to his heart,
But I knew just what he was trying.

Well he lied to his mother,
He lied to the rest.
He lied to the people
Who loved him the best.
I believe he lied to his children.

They say that half the lies he tells you are not true.
They say that half the lies he tells you are not - true.
Half the lies he tells you are not true;
Half the lies he tells you are not true.

You've come to the white house;
You've come to the white door.
You walked through the white building,
You might sleep on the white house floor.

You've come to the wrong building
And the wrong door, yeah;
You promised me the wrong people,
Come to the wrong partner.

They say that half the lies he tells you are not - true.
Half the lies he tells you are not true.
They say that half the lies he tells you are not - true;
They say that half the lies he tells you are not true.

Believe me that, half the lies he tells you are not true.
Believe me that half the lies he tells you are not true.
They say half the lies he tells you are not true,
Half the lies he tells you are not true...
