Liar liar with your pants on fire White spades hangin' on the telephone wire Gamblers reevaluate along the dotted line

You'll never recognize yourself on heartattack and vine Doctor, lawyer, beggar man thief Philly Joe remarkable looks on in disbelief If you want a taste of madness, you'll have to wait in line You'll probably see someone you know on heartattack and vine Boney's high on china white, Shorty found a punk Don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk Well this stuff will probably kill you, let's do another line What you say you meet me down on heartattack and vine See that little Jersey girl in the see-through top With the peddle pushers sucking on a soda pop Well I bet she's still a virgin but it's only twenty-five 'til nine You can see a million of 'em on heartattack and vine Better off in Iowa against your scrambled eggs Than crawling down Cahuenga on a broken pair of legs You'll find your ignorance is blissful every goddamn time Your're waitin' for the RTD on heartattack and vine Boney's high on china white, Shorty found a punk Don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk Well this stuff will probably kill you, let's do another line What you say you meet me down on heartattack and vine Liar liar with your pants on fire White spades hangin' on the telephone wire Gamblers reevaluate along the dotted line You'll never recognize yourself on heartattack and vine Doctor, lawyer, beggar man thief Philly Joe remarkable looks on in disbelief If you want a taste of madness, you'll have to wait in line You'll probably see someone you know on heartattack and vine See that little Jersey girl in the see-through top With the peddle pushers sucking on a soda pop Well I bet she's still a virgin but it's only twenty-five 'til nine You can see a million of 'em on heartattack and vine Boney's high on china white, Shorty found a punk Don't you know there ain't no devil, there's just God when he's drunk Well this stuff will probably kill you, let's do another line What you say you meet me down on heartattack and vine
