HANGMAN by John Basos  1981

Hangman!
Everybody's running from the HANGMAN!
Let me spread the word about the HANGMAN
No one lies to him or they're through     
You better tell the truth or the Hangman will hang on you

Look out!!
Better look at what you say  the HANGMAN         
lies in wait both night and day 
and sees you , just when you think no one sees through
you better tell the truth or the Hangman will hang on you

The hangman hangs on to every single word that you say  
and when you tell a lie, it's with your own life you will pay   

Hangman! Let me tell the reason why the HANGMAN 
doesn't have to work or try  to see you
just when you thought no one sees through
because the Hangman lives deep inside of me and you



Oh and someday you'll say something that's been hanging in you
you will see from him you'll  be free cause its true  


Watch out!  Now you know the reason why the HANGMAN!
doesn't  have to work  or try to see you 
just when you think know one sees through
you better  tell the truth or the hangman will hang on
you better tell the truth or the hangman will hang on
you better tell the truth or the hangman will hang on

WATCH WHAT YOU DO!!!!
