Bo Origins: Born 10,000 Years Ago (67* d) ADD: The Liar (Makem Recording)^^ 13 Jan 98

Thank you Elektra, I cant find the album and my memory couldnt find a hook for the song. It's basically just as you posted it.


The Liar
Rec. by Tommy Makem

Yi di di, diddlee di di di
(Chorus) With your right foot toor-a-laddie toor-a-lee [TOOR-A-LEE!]
There ain't no-one can tell a lie like me [BULLSHIT!]
You may search until you tire
You wont find a bigger liar
I've been lying since the dawn of history.

I was born about 10,000 years ago In Ballmollet, in the County of Mayo
It was me who chased the vermin While St. Patrick preached his sermon
If I hear a bigger lie I'll let you know

I saw Eve go picking apples off a tree
She turned around and offered one to me
I said "no thank you Madam, You go try your luck with Adam
And went home to have some fish and chips, and tea."


I saw Delilah cutting Sampson's hair
She clipped away until his head was bare.
When he couldn't run away She married him, next day
And they opened up a barbershop in Clare.


It was during World War II I met them all
There was Roosevelt, Churchill and Degaulle.
By Christ, they almost fainted -- I was having my house painted
There was Hitler, hanging paper in the hall.

(Chorus x 2)
