Lyrics

Liar, liar, liar, liar!
Liar, liar, liar, liar!

Oh no
Now you know we all did this together
This is the Great American Music Songbook
That means all Americans helped created it
So you can't just keep giving the Grammys
Any recycling the stuff and calling it yours
We all share in this creation
C'mon now get wit' it!

You're an Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Cher, Madonna. Michael Bolton
Thief!
You stole my scattin', jazzin',
Gospel, rappin', ragtime, dancin', hooks
And all my beats
Uh-huh
All your Grammys, Oscars, Tonys,
Emmys, songbooks and reviews are a bore
C'mon
You documented and recycled my culture a
And now you call it yours.

You're a liar and a cheat
A conniver and a beast
You're a liar and a cheat
A conniver, dirty beast

You analyzed, dissected, and translated all my music turning into math
Uh-huh
And like a tick you sucked Mahalia,
Hartman, Dizzy, Billie, Aretha, and James Brown
Uh-huh
And then you labeled it a crossover
Writing it down and thinking that this farce would last
Well, well
No matter how you try to recreate it
Don't you know that Memorex don't last

You're a liar and a cheat (and a cheat)
A conniver and a thief (ugh, ugh, ugh)
You're a liar and a cheat (and a cheat)
A conniver, dirty beast

C'mon! Hit me!
Hit 'em with a good foot!
C'mon! C'mon!

The voices of the dead
Are all in your head
We want back what you stole
All that glitters ain't gold
What came before
You can not ignore

You're a liar, a conniver
Lying, cheating, conniving thief
You're a liar, a conniver
Lying, cheating, conniving thief
Ya done stole my blues and now you're gone
But that's okay, I'll carry on!
Ya done stole my blues and now you're gone
But that's okay, I'll carry on!

You're a liar and a cheat (and a cheat)
A conniver and a thief (ugh, ugh, ugh)
You're a liar and a cheat (and a cheat)
A conniver, dirty beast

Ya done stole my blues and now you're gone
But that's okay, I'll carry on!
Ya done stole my blues and now you're gone
But that's okay, I'll carry on!
Got my gospel selling chicken
But I will not take a lickin', no, no, no!
I got my rock, you got your Bach
So let's agree to carry on a be free!
