LYRICS
Mendacity, mendacity, it makes the world go round
A politician makes a speech and never hears the sound
The campaign trail winds on and on, in towns from coast to coast
The winner ain't the one who's straight, but he who lies the most.

Now voting rights in this fair land we know are not denied
But if I tried in certain states, from treetops I'd be tied
Mendacity, mendacity, it seems is everywhere
But try and tell the truth, and most folks scream "Not fair!"
