"Lie to Me" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby - move on

I know you got another
Jockey at home
Let me be your rider till your real man comes
Whip me baby lie like a dog
I really don't care if you do

(You got to) Lie to me baby
Uh huh (You got to) lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby - move on

I know you got yoursef a skinny ol' man
Let me be your baby, I know that I can
Slap me baby
Give me all of your grief
I have no use for the truth

(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby - move on

I know you got another
Jockey at home
Let me be your rider till your real man comes
Whip me baby lie like a rug
Never stop telling me lies

(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby
(You got to) Lie to me baby - move on

    General CommentTom prefaced this song during a recent concert in St. Louis by saying, "This song is about a girl who lied to me. *Please* continue to lie to me."

    General CommentToo good.

    Also, the line in the last verse is "whip me baby, lie like a rug" - not 'dog', which is used in the first verse. Just FYI.

    General Comment"let me be your rider till your real man comes" sounds like BDSM pony play..

    "...slap me baby"

    Fetish where you dress up and act like a baby?

    Ok I should be shot for saying all that, Tom Waits rules.
