"It's a Sin to Tell a Lie" as written by and Billy Mayhew....
Be sure it's true when you say, "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken

I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart, I'll die
So, be sure it's true when you say, "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie

Well, cross my heart and I hope to die
I'll never, never, never tell another white lie
Took a little doll out on a date last night
Next to her, Gravel Gertie would have looked alright
Now, I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea
'Cause I said, "Baby, you look good to me"
I told her I loved her but, oh, how I lied
And now, she's gettin' set to be my blushin' bride

If she leads me to the altar, then I'm sunk
'Cause I can't tell the preacher I was drunk
So, Lord have mercy on a no-'count sinner
Give me one more chance to let another guy win her
Cross my heart and I hope to die
I'll never, never, never tell another white lie

Be sure it's true when you say, "I love you"
If you break my heart, I'll die
So, be sure it's true when you say, "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
It's a sin to tell a lie
