Subject: ADD Version: Oh! How She Lied to Me
Sheet Music:

OH! HOW SHE LIED TO ME
(Harry White and Will Donaldson)

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 turtle dove,
And I'm such an innocent guy.

She said goodbye Valentino,
One night as I started to go,
She whispered, My Rudolph, I'll dream dear of you,
But my name's not Rudolph, it's Joe.

Refrain:
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 that my money would lead me astray,
And just to protect me she took it away,
She said she'd return it on some rainy day,
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
Oh! how she lied to me.

She told me to bet on a horse named Yvette,
Twill win ten to one and a fortune you'll get;
It's now ten to five and the horse ain't in yet,
Oh! how she lied to me.

She said, Let's get married and I'll treat you fair,
At home I've a drawer two of everything there.
But her bottom drawer, when I looked it was bare.
Oh! how she lied to me.

I called at her flat but since we don't speak,
And that's where I got this big bruise on my cheek,
Her husband, she said, was away for a week.
