JUST TELL THE TRUTH - LDS Hymn Parody #44


The Truth and Nothing But The Truth. No Wiggle Room. No Bobbing and Weaving.
I mean, REALLY!?!  Is that too much to ask?

And contrary to Boyd K. Packer's statement that "Some things that are true are not useful,"
THE TRUTH is always the best path. No Ifs, Ands or Buts about it...

JUST TELL THE TRUTH
Sung to the tune of God Speed the Right, #106

Though there are no easy answers,
Just tell the truth.
Though the facts may cost you dollars,
Just tell the truth.
When researching Mormon doctrine,
Filled with lies and that’s for certain.
Just tell the truth, just tell the truth.


For the Mormons wearing blinders,
Just tell the truth.
Though they think they’re happy campers,
Just tell the truth.
Lies are such a vicious cycle,
Honesty a righteous battle.
Just tell the truth, just tell the truth.


So they pray and read their scriptures,
And they obey,
Shading things to make them better
Is not the way.
A religion should be truthful,
Not exploring every angle,
Make sure they pay, make sure they pay.


Joseph Smith was not a prophet,
Just tell the truth,
But you work to keep that quiet,
Just tell the truth.
History is not subjective,
And the lies are not persuasive,
Just tell the truth, just tell the truth.
