I'm pretty sure that either this melody is a folk song I've heard many times and can't remember or I've written it, but I really like the story. I'll tweak the music later.
Truth and Lie were sisters and they looked much the same
But Lie dressed in her finest and Truth in garments, plain
Lie said "the day is lovely. There could be no finer weather."
And Truth saw it was so and so they both went out together.
And this I say and this I say and need no further proof
A Lie gets by more easily when standing next to Truth
They walked until the sun was high to a well both deep and cool
Lie said "the day it is too hot. Let us wade into this pool.
"And our forms they are the envy of all the country women."
So she cast off her finery and into the well went swimming
And so it goes and so it goes and so it goes I fear.
We most believe the Lie when it is what we want to hear.
So Truth took off her garments and into the water waded
Then Like jumped out a laughing and their clothing she has traded.
And she ran to the village. She cried "beware deception!"
But they didn't recognize her for Lie is Truth's reflection.
And Truth be told and Truth be told and Truth be told, they cried
But Lie spoke in the guise of Truth and they believed the Lie
Truth went chasing after in a fury dark and spiteful
And the people they rejected her for the naked Truth is frightful
They threw her in the deep dark well... her punishment and prison
When confronted with the ugly Truth the people wouldn't listen
But Truth will out and Truth will out and Truth will out her cell
You can find Truth if you care to in the bottom of the well
