The moon was all aglow But heaven was in your eyes The night that you told me Those little white lies The stars all seemed to know You didn't mean all those sighs The night that you told me Those little white lies I try, but there's no forgetting When evenin' appears I sigh but there's no regretting In spite of my tears Who wouldn't believe those lips Who wouldn't believe those eyes The night that you told me Those little white lies (Instrumental Break) I try, but there's no forgetting When evenin' appears I sigh but there's no regretting In spite of my tears The Devil was in your heart But Heaven was in your eyes The night that you told me Those little white lies Those lies Teeny-weeny little white lies (Transcribed from the Dinah Shore recording by Mel Priddle - May 2006) ******* as rec by Annette Hanshaw & her Sizzling Syncopaters July 21st 1930 New York For just a night like this, Filled with bliss, You led my heart astray! For just a real sweet chance To learn romance In a perfect way, It was the end of a perfect day, say; The moon was all aglow And heaven was in your eyes, The night that you told me Those little white lies. The stars all seemed to know You didn't mean all those sighs, The night that you told me Those little white lies I try, But there's no forgetting When evening appears' I sigh, But there's no regretting, In spite of my tears. The devil was in your heart, But Heaven was in your eyes, The night that you told me Those little white lies. you may be having fun, And maybe you'll think you're wise To do what you're doing With little white lies. Someday you'll meet someone, And you'll suddenly realise You don't like telling Those little white lies! Someday, you will love that somebody Who you think is true; Someday, you will find the someone is Feeding on you! A smile will be on her lips, The tears will be in your eyes; Your heart will be broken O'er little white lies! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011)
