I bought myself a liarbird 
He came with free drinks just to blur 
The lies falling out like rain 
On an average English summer's afternoon 

I bought myself a new notebook 
Sharpened my guitar and went to look 
If this biz was just as bongo as the liarbird made out 

All he would say 
Is 'I can make you famous'
All he would say 
All he would say 
'Just like a household name' is 
All he would say 

Methinks world is for you 
Made of what you believe 
If it's false or if it's true 
You can read it in your bible 
Or on the back of this record sleeve 

I bought myself a liarbird 
Things got more and more absurd 
It changed to a cuckoo 
And expanded filling up with all I gave 

I bought myself a big mistake 
He grew too greedy, bough will break 
And then we will find that liarbirds 
Are really flightless on their own 

All he would say 
Is 'I can make you famous'
All he would say 
All he would say 
'Just like a household name' is 
All he would say 

Methinks world is for you 
There's no handing it back 
If it's false or it's true 
You can read it in your prayer book 
Or on the side of a cornflake pack 

I gave away a liarbird 
A couple less drinks and now I've heard 
The truth shining out like sun 
On an average English winter's afternoon
