I Was Born About 10,000 Years Ago (And that's No Lie) I was born about ten thousand years ago There's a lot of famous folks I used to know I was in the Ark with Noah, I was in the whale with Jonah And there's no one who can prove it isn't so And that's no lie, and that's no lie. You can stop me if you've heard this one before 'Bout the apple too delicious to ignore Adam said to Eve: "We're cheating, if that apple we start eating! I came by and I'm the guy what ate the core And that's no lie, and that's no lie! Old King Solomon was very wise, they claim With a thousand wives, he knew them all by name That's because I used to list 'em - With my alphabetic system In my little book - each time he took a dame And that's no lie, and that's no lie! Isabella sent Columbus with a crew On a little trip across the ocean blue But to me she said: "Hey, fella, you stay here with Isabella" I'm the stowaway of fourteen ninety two And that's no lie, and that's no lie! I was on the shore with Washington, I swear When he tossed a coin across the Delaware But nobody has believed it, when I tell 'em I retrieved it And I bought me boots, they cost a buck a pair And that's no lie, and that's no lie! Nowadays, I see a doll whose name is Pearl And to tell the truth, I really love the girl When I said: "I love you, honey!" She said: "Quit your kidding, sonny You're the biggest little liar in the world." And that's no lie, and that's no lie! I've been notified by wire. I'm the champ The winning liar I'm the biggest little liar in the world. SPOKEN: And that's no lie! XX
