You have to be joking
They wouldn't do what you said
Oh, my vision is blurred again

You have to be kiddin' me
They wouldn't do those unspeakable things
Oh, my Jesus
It's worse than you think

Stood here in the morning
Got no science to explain
Seems to me that God and the devil
Are both the same

You have to be lyin'
