Sometimes we call them “little white lies”
or perhaps just a little old fib;
We’re only doing it for somebody else,
we say with hypocritical glib.
we don’t want to hurt them with honesty,
so we just stretch the truth with a lie,
It’s only a little make-believe,
we tell ourselves with a sigh.
And should the truth come back to bite
us I n our lying asses,
We say “I only did it just for you”
and hope this new lie passes.
