Lies

The Knickerbockers

About Lies

"Lies" is a song written by Beau Charles and Buddy Randell and performed by The Knickerbockers. It reached #20 on the U. S. pop chart in 1965. It was featured on their 1966 album Lies. It is famous for often being mistaken for a Beatles track due to its similarities to their style and harmonies. The single was produced by Jerry Fuller. Here is what original Knickerbockers member Beau Charles said on the song recalling the behind the scenes story behind it: "We desperately tried to write something that sounded like the British Invasion'. We wrote 'Lies' in less than one half hour. We demo-ed it in New York." After a Jerry Fuller inspired re-arrangement, the track was recorded at Sunset Sound in West Hollywood with Bruce Botnick as the Engineer. Things were not quite right, so the multi-track master was taken to Leon Russell's house in Hollywood Hills. Jerry Fuller knew Leon and "Leon had this great little studio - just a four track". The band recorded the vocals there and overdubbed a new guitar part that was recorded from a beat up old Fender guitar amp that gave the guitar sound a meaty, edgy feel".

Lies, lies, you're tellin' me that you'll be true
Lies, lies
That's all I ever get from you
Tears, tears
I shed a million tears for you
Tears, tears
And now you're lovin' someone new
Someday I'm gonna be happy
But I don't know when just now
Lies,  lies
A-breakin' my heart

You think that you're such a smart girl
And I'll believe what you say
But who do you think you are, girl
To lead me on this way hey
Lies, lies
I can't believe a word you say
Lies, lies
Are gonna make you sad someday
Some day you're gonna be lonely
But you won't find me around
Lies, lies
A-breakin' my heart, ah

Someday I'm gonna be happy
But I don't know when just now
Lies, lies
A-breakin' my heart
You think that you're such a smart girl
And I'll believe what you say
But who do you think you are, girl
To lead me on this way hey
Lies (ah), lies (yeah baby)

I can't believe a word you say
Lies, lies
Are gonna make you sad someday
Some day you're gonna be lonely
But you won't find me around
Lies, lies
A-breakin' my heart
I said, baby, now (breakin' my heart)

Oh, yeah, you're still breakin' my heart (breakin' my heart)
