I Stopped Telling Lies on Facebook

I stopped telling lies on Facebook,
to show the world who I am.
I don’t have 50-inch heels,
or hair made out of ham.

I stopped telling lies on Facebook,
I don’t have a pet T-rex.
All my pets are lies,
like the octopus named Lex.

I stopped telling lies on Facebook,
Because I know where it ends.
Lies never turn out good,
even with amends.

I stopped telling lies on Facebook,
now my account is true.
Let the world know who I am,
even if it makes me blue.

Now my page is all honest,
and I still feel good.
I never tell lies,
maybe everyone should.
