The Lyrics

You tell shyster your snout
Smashed by door that swung out,
Sham pain.
You tell him you fell down,
Hit head on the ground,
Sham pain.

"So I lied!
So I lied!
So I lied!"
Sham pain.

You tell him that you,
Bit by a rabid shrew,
Sham pain.
Wounded by a gun
Riding your bike for fun,
Sham pain.

"So I lied!
So I lied!
So I lied!"
Sham pain.

He takes your case on
After you writhe and fawn,
Sham pain.
"Don't forget this, quack:
Also hurt my back!"
Sham pain.

So I lied,
Case is tried
Judge rules, snide:
"Sham pain!"
