"I Can't Tell a Lie" as written by and Irving Berlin....
I could say that you're homely,
Just as homely as pie!
But this is Washington's birthday,
And I've got to say you're beautiful,
'Cause I can't tell a lie!

I could say that you're stupid,
Nothing up in your crown!
But this is Washington's birthday,
And the truthful he
Of the cherry tree
Would look down on me
And frown!

I could say that I hate you if I try,
But I've got to say that I love you,
'Cause it's February the twenty second
And I can't tell a lie!

I could say that you're homely,
Just as homely as pie!
But this is Washington's birthday,
And I've got to say you're beautiful,
'Cause I can't tell a lie!

I could say that you're stupid,
Nothing up in your crown!
But this is Washington's birthday,
And the truthful he
Of the cherry tree
Would look down on me
And frown!

I could say that I hate you if I try,
But I've got to say that I love you,
'Cause it's February the twenty second
And I can't tell a lie!
