LyricsEdit

Tell me why
Tell me why
Tell me why you lied
That was not a nice thing to do
Not a nice thing to do
It wasn't very nice of you
Not a nice thing to do

Tell me why
Tell me why
Tell me why when you got caught in it you told the same lie
That was not a nice thing to do
Not a nice thing to do
Wasn't very nice of you
Not a nice thing to do

Tell me why
Tell me why
Tell me why you made threats against the life of the prime minister of Canada
That was not a nice thing to do
Not a nice thing to do
It wasn't very nice of you
Not a nice thing to do
