It's a Sin to Tell a Lie
Fats Waller Lyrics


Be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of heart have been broken
Just because these words were spoken

I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie
Now, ya better be sure that it's true when you say "I love ya."
Honey chile, don'tcha know it's a sin to tell a lie? Whole lotta hearts have been
broken. Ya know why they were broken? Just for these foolish little words that
were spoken. Ya know what they were? "I love ya, I love ya." Darlin', ya know
doggone well I LUV ya and if ya break my heart I've GOT to die. So ya better be
sure that it's true when you come runnin' up here sayin' "I love ya" 'cause it's a sin
to tell a lie.

I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true when you say "I love you"
It's a sin to tell a lie

I was a tender 5 yrs old when Fats did this one. How great to know the good ones cn live for years.

David Lasson

A thrilling jazz side. Fats allows his outstanding sidemen to shine during their solos (clarinet, trumpet), all the while driving things ever-forward with his arresting vocal choruses and, especially, that mighty left hand: little wonder that his group was billed as "Fats Waller and his Rhythm."

AT 82- BEFORE MY TIME>>>BUT I KNOW AN ENTERTAINER WHEN I SEE & HEAR ONE.....FATS WAS ONE SUCH!

My grandmother used to sing this song..... <3

Stephen Fulton

Champian also recorded a nice version.

Fred Gerardi

his outstanding 'stride' piano style tends to get overlooked by his semi-comical singing

I like Somethin Smith and the Redheads from 1955 the best.
