I—am an honest man
I—despise a lie
For any reason,
Any reason at all—
Except—
Perhaps to save the feelings
Of someone you love…

…And there are times, you know
When it just doesn’t matter—
When no harm is done
Or the harm is so small
And the benefit so great
That a lie is ok
I mean, then it’s hardly any lie at all.
No lie, no?  Yes, then yes—
I—am an honest man
