City girls just seem to find out early
A rich old man
She'll dress up all in lace and go in style
Late at night a big old house gets lonely
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only

To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down
She is headed for the cheatin' side of town
You can't hide your lyin' eyes
I thought by now you'd realize

With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel
She rushes to his arms; they fall together
She swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever

And your smile is a thin disguise
There ain't now way to hide your lyin' eyes
She gets up and pours herself a strong one,
Another night, it's gonna be a long one.

She thinks about a boy she knew in school.
She's so far gone she feels just like a fool.
My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things.
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things?

And your smile is a thin disguise
There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes
