Liar, Liar (The Theft of Black Music)

Lawrence Watson

Intro-Lead(Ensemble)

Liar! Liar!

Liar! Liar!

Liar! (Liar!) Liar! (Liar!)

Liar (Liar!), Liar!

 

Verse 1

You're an Elvis Pressley, Frank Sinatra, Cher- Madonna Michael Bolton Thief

You stole my scattin, jazzin, gospel, rappin, ragtime, dancing , hooks and all my beats! (Uh huh!)

All your Grammys, Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, songbooks and reviews are a bore (Come on!)

You documented and recycled my culture and now you call it yours.

Chorus

You're a liar

And a cheat!

A caniver

And a beast!

You're a liar

And a cheat!

A caniver

dirty beast!

​Verse 2

You analyzed, disected, and translated all my music turning it to math!

Like a tic you sucked Mahalia, Hartman, Dizzy, Billie, Aretha, and James Brown.

And then you labeled it crossover, writing it down and thinking that this farce

Would last. (Well, well!)

Now matter how you try to recreate don't you know that Memorex don't last.

Chorus

You're a liar

And a cheat!

A caniver

And a theif!

You're a liar

And a cheat!

A caniver

dirty beast!

 

​Bridge

The voices of the dead

Are all in your head

We want back what you stole  

All that glitters ain't gold

What came before

You can not ignore

(Not ignore!)

 

Vamp

You’re a liar!

A caniver

I got my rock, you got, your Bach so let’s agree to carry on!

Got my gospel sellin’ chicken, but I will not take a lickin’ so come on!

Repeat as desired
