Yeah
Uh huh
La da da da da

Sorry sorry sorry sorry
Hey, baby my nose is getting big
I noticed it be growing when I been telling them fibs
Now you say your trust's gettin' weaker
Probably 'cos my lies just started gettin' deeper
And the reason for my confession is that I learn my lesson
And I really think you have to know the truuth
Because I lied and I cheated and I lied a little more
But after I did it I don't know what I did it for
I admit that I have been a little immature
Fucking with your heart like I was the pre-da-tor
In my book of lies I was the editor
And the author
I forged my signature
And now I apologize for what I did to ya
'Cos what you did to me I did to you

Nononono baby, nononono don't lie
Nononono, yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try
What you gonna do when it all comes out
When I see you & what you're all about
Nonono babe, nononono don't lie
Yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try

She said I'm leaving
'Cos she can't take the pain
It's hard to continue this love it ain't the same
Can't forget the things that I've done inside her brain
Too many lies committed too many games
She feeling like a fool getting on the last train
Tryin' to maintain but the feeling won't change
I'm sorry for the things that I've done and what I became
Caught up in living my life in the fast lane
Blinded by lights, cameras, you know the fame
I don't know the reason why I did these things

And I lie and I lie
And I lie and I lie

And now our emotions are drained
'Cos I lie and I lie and a little lie lie
And now your emotions are drained

Nononono baby, nononono don't lie
Nononono, yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try
What you gonna do when it all comes out
When I see you & what you're all about
Nonono babe, nononono don't lie
Yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try

Ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh
Ba da ba da ba da ba da badabada

Yo, I'm lying to my girl
Even though I love her
And she all in my world
I give her all my attention and diamonds & pearls
She's the one who makes me feel on top of the world
Still I lie to my girl, I do it

And I lie and I lie and I lie 'til there's no turning back
I don't know why, and I lie and I lie 'til I don't know who I am

Nononono baby, nononono don't lie
Nononono, yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try
What you gonna do when it all comes out
When I see you & what you're all about
Nonono babe, nononono don't lie
Yeah you kno kno kno know you gotta try

    General CommentSweet. first comment. well, obviosly this song is about lieing. It's about getting into a bad habbit of lieing to his girlfriend. the girlfriend is starting to find out about the lies, and it upsets her and she cant trust him any more. and the guy is trying to starting to realize all the problems his lieing is causing.
    "What you gonna do when it all comes out
    When I see you & what you're all about" is obviousely means how are you going to fix this problem when i find out about the truths behind all your lies.
    "And I lie and I lie and I lie till there's no turning back
    I don't know why, [and I lie and I lie till I don't know who I am]"
    probly means that his lieing has goten way too out of controll the its going to be next to impossible to fix it all and he doesnt want to lie any more, but its too big of a habbit now.

    General Commentack. will.i.am and fergie are always the main couple here. whatever. this song is no doubt about lying. he lies and cheats on his girlfriend though he loves her deeply and wouldn`t want to lose her. he doesn`t know why he does that. from what i can tell, it`s just a thrill to him though he doesn`t know it [just an inference]. after a while, the girl slowly learns that she can`t trust him and is breaking up with him. then he`s heartbroken and moping about it all.

    General CommentI totally agree with beprules. This song is just sounds so good, and i love the "Nononono baby, nononono don't lie", bit in the chorus. I'm not normally into this kinda music but Black Eyed Peas are a exception, speshly when they got songs like this one.

    General CommentEven though i liked how this song sounded and the video clip for it, i never really liked the meaning, like saying 'dont lie' over and over again is a bit lame.
    A while ago i saw in an interview, Fergie said that "Dont lie" was based on a song that she had written years before, which was about how she used to lead and "unhealthy lifestyle" (im assuming this was drug addiction) and how she lied to herself about it, telling herself that it wasnt such a problem etc..
    Then she went on to say that, with the black eyed peas, they remade the song, but gave it a different meaning (about infidelity).
    I really dont think they should have changed the meaning because so many songs are about cheating and it gets to the point where it just seems shallow and cliche'
    Most of their popular songs seem to be shallow.. lets get it started/retarted or hey mamma (with the exception of "Where is the love") Although i must say that most of them sound really good.
    I never thought i would care so much about song meanings, when i was younger all i cared was if songs sounded good.

    General Commentis it just me or does this song and the last one they released sound about the same? I mean they both start with the word "DON'T" (don't lie, don't phunk with my heart) Also the chorus is "NONONONO" Very creative guys

    General Commentdoes anyone know why they say "cos what u did to me i did to u" if it is just about him cheating on her?

    General Commentyeah i have the same question timmyd has, but i was hearing the song, and i realized, that maybe they both cheated on theirselves, because of the part were fergie says: "And i lie, and i lie till there´s no turning back...." soo, what do you think?
