ASHFORD & SIMPSON lyrics - Somebody Told A Lie

ASHFORD & SIMPSON
"Somebody Told A Lie"
(Nick Ashford / Valerie Simpson)

Somebody told a lie
Said heaven was in the sky
Throw it out the window, says I
I mean so to speak
If happiness is what you seek
First you'd better realize
You're walking down the wrong street

[Chorus:]
'Cause I found it and it's deep inside
And I want to take you there
Want to take you there
In my arms, babe, be there instantly

Somebody told a lie
Said heaven was in the sky
Throw it out the window, says I
If you can get to this, I'm not saying it don't exist
It's just a difference of opinion
Where some will, some won't pay the fare

[Chorus]

Somebody told a lie
Said heaven was in the sky
