Lyrics [Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

CALL ME A DREAMER
IN A FOOL'S PARADISE,
MY HEART KNOWS NO DIFFERENCE
AT LOVE IT'S UNWISE;
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME
AND WILL TILL I DIE,
LIKE MUSIC YOU THRILL ME
WITH BEAUTIFUL LIES.

[Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

I HEAR WEDDING BELLS RINGING,
I HAVE STARS IN MY EYES,
I SEE RED ROSES BLOOMING,
A RAINBOW IN THE SKY.
ALL SWEET THINGS COME TO ME
IN THE TWINKLE OF AN EYE,
WHEN YOU HOLD ME AND TELL ME
THOSE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

[Chorus]:
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
BEAUTIFUL LIES,
EACH WORD IS A HEARTACHE
IN PERFECT DISGUISE;
I CAN'T HELP BUT LISTEN
AND THEN I REALIZE,
THE WORDS YOU HAVE SPOKEN
ARE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

Lyrics HOW MANY TIMES
HAVE YOU HEARD
SOMEONE SAY,
IF I HAD HIS MONEY,
I WOULD DO THINGS
MY WAY
BUT LITTLE THEY KNOW
THAT IT'S SO HARD
TO FIND,
ONE RICH MAN IN TEN,
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

ONCE I WAS WINNING
IN FORTUNE AND FAME
EV'RYTHING
THAT I DREAMED FOR
TO GET A START
IN LIFE'S GAME.
BUT SUDDENLY
IT HAPPENED,
I LOST EV'RY DIME
BUT I'M RICHER
BY FAR
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

MONEY CAN'T BUY BACK
YOUR YOUTH
WHEN YOU'RE OLD,
OR A FRIEND
WHEN YOU'RE LONELY
OR A LOVE
THAT'S GROWN COLD
THE WEALTHIEST PERSON,
IS A PAUPER AT TIMES,
COMPARED TO THE MAN
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

WHEN LIFE HAS ENDED,
MY TIME HAS RUN OUT,
MY FRIENDS
AND MY LOVED ONES
I'LL LEAVE
THERE'S NO DOUBT
BUT ONE THING
FOR CERTAIN,
WHEN IT COMES
MY TIME,
I'LL LEAVE
THIS OLD WORLD
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

Lyrics I DON'T WANT
YOUR LONELY MANSION,
WITH A TEAR
IN EV'RY ROOM
ALL I WANT'S
THE LOVE YOU PROMISED
BENEATH
THE HALO'D MOON.
BUT YOU THINK
I SHOULD BE HAPPY,
WITH YOUR MONEY
AND YOUR NAME
AND HIDE MYSELF
IN SORROW,
WHILE YOU PLAY
YOUR CHEATIN' GAME.

SILVER THREADS AND GOLDEN NEEDLES
CANNOT MEND
THIS HEART OF MINE
AND I DARE NOT
DROWN MY SORROW
IN THE WARM GLOW
OF YOUR WINE
BUT YOU THINK
I SHOULD BE HAPPY
WITH YOUR MONEY
AND YOUR NAME
AND HIDE MYSELF
IN SORROW,
WHILE YOU PLAY
YOUR CHEATIN' GAME.
SILVER THREADS AND GOLDEN NEEDLES
CANNOT MEND
THIS HEART OF MINE
AND I DARE NOT
DROWN MY SORROW
IN THE WARM GLOW
OF YOUR WINE
YOU CAN'T BUY MY LOVE
WITH MONEY,
FOR I NEVER
WAS THAT KIND
SILVER THREADS AND GOLDEN NEEDLES,
CANNOT MEND
THIS HEART OF MINE.
