HOW IT LIES, HOW IT LIES, HOW IT LIES (Sonny Burke / Paul Francis Webster) Connie Haines - 1949 Kay Starr - 1949 Bing Crosby & Evelyn Knight (with Jud Conlon's Rhythmaires) - 1949 Joy Nichols - 1949 Peggy Lee & Bing Crosby (Radio Transcription) - 1949 Doris Day - 1952 Ronnie Draper & The Four-Do-Matics - 1962 Also recorded by: Dean Martin; Big Maybelle; Johnny Janis. As recorded by CONNIE HAINES: I've got a fellah that's big and strong I've got a hunch that he's doin' me wrong Know he's doin' me wrong If you think candy's sweet There's a guy you oughta meet Sugar drips from his lips when he sighs But the lovelight that lies Within my baby's eyes How it lies, how it lies, how it lies He has style, he has charms And a pair of lovin' arms That I'm dyin' to try on for size But the lovelight that lies Within my baby's eyes How it lies, how it lies, how it lies His name tops the list of every florist His girls are standin' ten deep in line With all of the trees in the forest Why should I be the only clingin' vine Oh, there's heartbreak in store When the one that you adore Is a devil in angel's disguise For the lovelight that lies Is the lovelight that dies When it lies, when it lies, when it lies (If you think candy's sweet) Uh-huh! (There's a gal you oughta meet) Who me? (Sugar drips from her lips when she sighs) Aah, fellahs! (But the lovelight that lies) (Within my baby's eyes) (How it lies) Uh-uh, (How it lies) Oh no, (How it lies) Well, listen to my side of the story He has style, he has charms And a pair of lovin' arms That I'm dyin' to try on for size (For exercise!) But the lovelight that lies Within my baby's eyes How it lies, how it lies, how it lies (Her name tops the list of every florist) About those orchids! (Her beaus are standing ten deep in line) Uh, which way did they go? With all of the trees in the forest Why should I be that clingin' vine Oh there's heartbreak in store When the one that you adore Is a devil in angel's disguise For the lovelight that lies Is the lovelight that dies When it lies (When it lies) When it lies (When it lies) How it lies (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2009) ********** Male version as recorded by DEAN MARTIN: If you think candy's sweet There's a girl you oughta meet Sugar drips from her lips when she sighs But the lovelight that lies Within my baby's eyes How it lies, how it lies, how it lies She has style, she has charms And a pair of lovin' arms That I'm dyin' to try on for size But the lovelight that lies Within my baby's eyes How it lies, how it lies, how it lies Oh her name tops the list of every florist Her beaux stand ten deep in line With all of the trees in the forest Why should I be the only clingin' vine Oh there's heartbreak in store Where the one that you adore Is a devil in the angel disguise But the lovelight that lies Is the lovelight that dies How it lies, how it lies, how it lies (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - September 2005) **********
