About It’s a Sin To Tell a Lie
“It’s a Sin To Tell a Lie” was originally introduced by Fats Waller. It’s been recorded by artists from Billie Holiday to Steve Goodman to Slim Whitman to Patti Page. And, of course, Tony Bennett.

Lyrics

Be sure it’s true when you say
“I love you”
It’s a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because one word was spokenI love you
Yes I do
I love you
If you break my heart I’ll die
So be sure that it’s true when you say
“I love you”
It’s sin to tell a lie
