Sex and Lies

It just didn't happen, it didn't occur

It was all in the mind of a cold jealous girl

But it echoed 'round town in an 'ooh la la' loop

And the gossips rejoiced spreading lies as the truth


They told of a night in a car in the woods

Of a wife and the shame as the windows steamed up

They tore her to pieces, the man they destroyed

As they waited for rescue the engine had died


She was happily married and he was betrothed

The night was so bad a lift suited them both

Conditions grew worse, a diversion, road closed

A tyre blew, the car stopped, the engine grew cold


Damnation passed by in a rag and bone van

A right piece of work with her grumpy old man

They both knew the car and they both knew the plate

And they both saw the shadows of people they hate


In no time at all they let their tongues loose

'Bout a man with no shirt and a mother of two

They couldn't quite see for the breath on the glass

But her bra was undone and her head on his lap


The lie grew in stature as no time was lost

No way out now for a girl and her boss

They were rescued by twelve but the damage was done

It was all over town by a quarter to one


A slammed door, a suitcase, a dress in the mud

A ring in a box thrown as far as she could

'No smoke without fire,' 'No use trying to deny'

'This town's had enough of your sex and your lies'


They dined on the lies that skewered the truth

More meat on the bones, more lust at the roots

Far better to roll in the mud of deceit

Than to council: 'pray caution, let honesty speak'
