(Hey mama hey mama hey ma they lie) x3

You read the paper, watch the news
And you think you're well informed
Well, I got some news for you my friend

That headline that you read, the story that broke
It was a scandal, yeah a scam, political masterstroke
Tell you what they want you to hear
Close your eyes and open your ears

(It's easy) Yes it's easier that way
('Cause you) When you don't have to think for yourself
You said, hey, I tell no lies, I tell no lies
Because I read it all in black and white
It was on my TV
Yeah they were telling me just what to believe
Yeah, I tell no lies, I tell no lies
I know why they're telling you lies

(Hey mama hey mama hey ma they lie) x10

Everyday you and me, we see what we are shown
Yes it can be hard to scratch below
There are people at the top but they are hidden far from view
They're not gonna show their faces to the likes of me and you
You never see them on the street
But you'll always see the things that they do

(They know) Yes they can get away
(No price) And no price is too high for them to pay
Yeah I tell no lies, I tell no lies
It's very simple, yeah it's in black and white
And it's on your TV
Oh, we got everything you need to believe
Hey, I tell no lies, I tell no lies
I know why they're telling you lies
Why they're telling you lies
I know why they're telling you lies

Oh, lies lies lies (lies lies lies) x3
(Hey mama hey mama hey ma they lie) x8
All the while they're telling you lies
