"I promise that I wont..."

"I swear to it, really... trust me!"

There have been many lists of lies that have been circulated around for years.

David Alan Coe ~ Three Biggest Lies

Well the motorcycle club had a party
And all the young virgins were there.
And I found a blonde with little bitty titties and a pretty yellow ribbon in her hair.
And I told here the three bigest lies in the world, the ones my daddy first told me.
And that was the beginning of my sexual life and the end of my fantasy.

I said this'll only hurt for a little while,
I'll only put the head of it in,
I promise that I'll never try to come in your mouth…

Met her in a local honky tonk,
Told her it was love at first sight,
She was just a looking for a shoulder to cry on and a place where she could spend the night.
Me I was a little nervous, I'd never been that far before,
So I told her the three biggest lies in the world as we danced across the floor.

I said this'll only hurt for a little while,
I'll only put the head of it in,
I promise that I'll never try to come in your mouth…

Busted in a Birmingham robbery,
He didn't have no money for bail,
The judge bound him over to the local grand jury and the sheriff threw his young ass in jail.
They put him in a cell with a pervert, who latter tried to climb in his bed,
Stuck one of those homemade knives to his throat, and these are the words that he said, GOOD BUDDY

This'll only hurt for a little while,
I'll only put the head of it in,
I promise that I'll never try to come in your mouth…

To Mr. Webb Penelope:

Thank you for your asinine comment, but I don't care about your Dorkix anti-smoking pill. I don't want to enroll in your program to enable smokers to quit smoking. I don't want to enroll in your behavioral modification program called "GETDORKED Support Plan" at any additional cost, free or not. So take a hike off of a short pier, you dork!
