Be sure it's true , when you say I love you
It's a sin to twell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
just because those words were spoken

I love you , yes I do I love you
if you break my heart I'll die
so be sure that it's true when you say I love you
cuz it's a sin to tell a lie

Cross my heart hope to die,
I'll never never never tell another white lie
took a liitle girl on a date last night
I tell you people she looked all right
now I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea
she sure looked good to me
I told her I loved her my how I lied
now she's set to be my blushing bride
if she gets me to the alter , I'm sunk
I can't tell the preacher I was drunk
Lord have mercy on a no count sinner
give me one more chance to let another man win her
it's a sin to tell a lie
