Got to thinking lately - a lot of people seem to be doing a lot of lying lately and if you're rich you can usually get away with it..

Hey Paulski
Well that's certainly a pertinent tune for the times we're living through.
I liked the plinky-plonk music hall feel to the piano and the lyrics are, of course, clever all the way through. 
I can very often imagine your songs as show tunes and this is no exception. 
There are so many people for whom this could feature in some future comedy bio-pic musical... you better start pitching it now...
Paul
It's all too beautiful.

 ALWAYS a joy Paul...a guaranteed smile ;D ;D

 Liked the vid. One thing did spring to mind though  ;D
 Small and insignificant detail that it is.....but I've just got to know...
 Why did you sing tooth instead of teeth  ;D ;D I know it rhymes..
 Did you have a particular tooth in mind.. ;D
 I just want to know  ;D ;D ;D ;D .  Strange but true...

 Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year old chap..
 I think we should get the band together again this year ?? ;D ;D

 Loved the song...take care


Nowt as queer as folk...........my gran

Yo Paulski.

I love a shiny new Paulski song.  :)

Always great,entertaining lyrics and a dash of humour which is sadly missing from a lot of music. We all need a giggle now and then.

Love this 'joke with a jag'.

How do you keep banging out such highly original stuff Paul ? I love your piano sound as always. A great introduction to the new year  :)

Paul,
Clever, original sounding show tune.
Lyrics and vocals are the star. Great choice of chord and progression.
Sounds like a standard and should be on a animation film soundtrack imho.

@Paulski,

this is everything that I have come to expect of your writing. I feel like I'm sounding like a record on constant replay.  I think that you are such a skilful writer.  You've pulled all of the elements together - a brainstorming session that has included The FBI, the judge. The Gavel etc - that's taking your writing to a more professional level and I appreciate that.

As ever, it's a pleasure to listen.

Awesome stuff @Paulski ! But I do hear the smart money is on resigning your presidency in exchange for you and your family being exempt from prosecution, in which case you can lie to the Feds!

Song is ace as ever, love a list song and you work all the angles beautifully. Love the "Lie to Yourself" at the end, perfect switch around on the listener.
Right, back to generating fake news...  ;D

@nooms thank you kind sir. I'll take a SNL gig anytime - no matter how unlikely  ;D

@Movin Flavour - thx Sandeep hehe - I never thought about Trump but I suppose this could apply  ;D ;D

This is really great @paulski, another entertaining song to add to your growing collection. You have a stand-out sound that is so different to anything else I am hearing out there.

Clever word craft, great piano and convincing distinctive vocals. Just a treat to listen to, I'd say!
