    Lyrics

    City girls just seem to find out early
    How to open doors with just a smile
    A rich old man and she won't have to worry
    She'll dress up all in lace and go in style.

    Late at night a big old house gets lonely
    I guess ev'ry form of refuge has its price
    And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
    Given to a man with hands as cold as ice.

    So she tells him she must go out for the evening
    To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down
    But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin'
    She is headed for the cheatin' side of town.

    You can't hide your lyin' eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't no way to hide your lyin eyes.

    --- Instrumental ---

    On the other side of town a boy is waiting
    With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
    She drives on through the night, anticipating
    'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel.

    She rushes to his arms,they fall together
    She whispers that it's only for awhile
    She swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever
    She pulls away and leaves him with a smile.

    You can't hide your lyin' eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't now way to hide you lyin' eyes.

    --- Instrumental ---

    She gets up and pours herself a strong one
    And stares out at the stars up in the sky
    Another night, it's gonna be a long one
    She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry.

    She wonders how it ever got this crazy
    She thinks about a boy she knew in school
    Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
    She's so far gone she feels just like a fool.

    My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
    You set it up so well, so carefully
    Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things
    You're still the same old girl you used to be.

    You can't hide your lyin' eyes
    And your smile is a thin disguise
    I thought by now you'd realize
    There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.

    There ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.
    Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes...
