  • Lyrics: Now I should have known that your love wasn’t real ‘Cause you are just as slick as a jar full of eels. You run around when you want, you do what you please And when you lie down with dogs, you gonna get up with fleas You’re just a Chinese knock-off, A phoney baloney A Real dissembler, a one trick pony You never meant a word that you said to me You’d rather lie on credit than tell the truth for free Now you’re a buddy of mine, a real fine friend I’d never thought you try to do me…in the end. But your game was crooked, your intentions too I should have counted my fingers…when I shook hands with you You’re just a Chinese knock-off, A phoney baloney A Real dissembler, a one trick pony I guess I was a little too obtuse, You went through me like grass through a goose Now you come around to my neighborhood And try to tell everybody you’re gonna do them some good You talk real smooth like the sermon on the mount But then everything went into your bank account You’re just a Chinese knock-off, A phoney baloney A Real dissembler, a one trick pony You never meant a word that you said to us I guess you thought we all rode on the yellow short bus
