But a lie's still a lie, even when it’s white

Lyrics to WHITE LIE, a song from US TV Series "Lie to me"
(Src: http://bonjupatten.wordpress.com/2010/12/13/white-lies-do-not-pay-off-in-the-long-run/)

I say I'm 10 when I'm 9 and half.
My Uncle Tells a joke and I try to laugh
In gym I fake a headache, but I want to quit
I say I love the sweater that my Grandma knit.

But that's a white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
That's the kind you want to tell
white Lie
(sing echo) White Lie
So your mom won't have to yell
A white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
Everybody does it cause it feels alright and it's more polite
But a lie's still a lie, even when it's white

I pretend I'm asleep when my dad walk's in
I said I ate my chicken, but I just ate the skin
You speak and say your lie and when your mouth says not
Your pants are on fire, but they're not too hot

When it's a
White Lie
(sing echo) White Lie
It's the kind you want to tell
A white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
So your dad won't have to yell
A white lie
(sing echo) white lie
Everybody does it, cause it feels alright and it's more polite
but a lie's still a lie, even when it's white

While it might be hard, to say what's true,
would you want a white lie told to you?

But that's a white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
That's the kind you want to tell
white Lie
(sing echo) White Lie
So your mom won't have to yell
A white lie
(sing echo) White Lie
Everybody does it cause it feels alright and it's more polite
But a lie's still a lie, even when it's white!

P.S: Test post to my blog through email. Ask me how.

Here’s list of the 15 most common white lies and why we tell them:

1. It wasn’t me! – Because some things just aren’t worth taking credit for.
2. The table will be ready in 5 minutes. – Because it sounds a lot better than 15 minutes.
3. Oh, yeah. That makes sense. – Because option B involves admitting that I am clueless.
4. Thank you so much! I just love it! – Because telling someone that their gift sucked would make me look like an insensitive jerk.
5. Yeah, you look great in that dress. – Because it’s better than being slapped.
6. Oh, things would have been different if I was there! – Because I’m Superman and I can always make a difference… or at least that’s how I want others to perceive of me.
7. No, officer… I have no idea how fast I was going. – Because claiming ignorance is sometimes better than admitting to insubordination.
8. I’m 29. – Because 29 is like 20 years younger than 30.
9. Yeah, I’ll start working on that ASAP! – Because telling you I have 10 things to do first would just irritate you.
10. Yes, John was with me last night. – Because that’s what friends do… we agree and ask questions later.
11. My resume is 5 pages long for a good reason. – Because I’m darn good at bullshittin’!
12. Man, that sucker was 10 feet long! – Because anything less would be boring.
13. Yeah, I was a badass on my high school football team! – Because I want to be seen by others in an even stronger light than I see myself.
14. I’m 21, 6’5, with a muscular build. – Because you can’t see me in this online chat room… ha ha!
15. I thought I already sent that email out. I’m sure I did. – Because telling you that it was a low priority and I forgot would probably hurt our relationship.
