You put your steps in all the right places
You know all the right words to say
You are the master of a million faces
But all it is is just a game you play
You think you've got my heart in your back hip pocket
Oh, but there's something you should know

You can't hide . . . your evil heart
'Cause I see right . . . through every part
Your downward slide . . . is about to start
'Cause you can't hide . . . your evil heart

On any Sunday we can find you kneelin'
As you pretend to lift your voice to pray
On any Monday we can find you dealin'
A little shady business, come what may
Your double standard's gonna catch you sleepin'
And then you'll reap what you sow
