Politicians Lie

politicians lie
to suit their cause
expenses sleaze
tuition fees
politicians lie

left or right
whichever wing
the middle ground
there’s no such thing
black and white
or plain as day
we think it’s clear
but their shade is gray

politicians lie
as a matter of course
budget cutbacks
oil prices tax
politicians lie

left or right
whichever wing
the middle ground
there’s no such thing
black and white
or plain as day
we think it’s clear
but their shade is gray

politicians lie
when they move their lips
write manifestos
to massage egos
politicians lie

black and white
or plain as day
we think it’s clear
but their shade is gray
