Words by Andy and Beth Wheeler
Tune: "Lying Eyes"
			City girls just seem to find out early
			How to open doors with just some guile
			A nice low roll and you won't have to worry
			You can pick the lock and rob the house in style

			But late at night reality gets lonely
			I guess every pot of coffee has its price
			It breaks her heart to think she's late for gaming
			So she grabs her purse and her big bag of dice

			So she tells him she must go out for the evening
			To comfort an old friend who's feeling down
			But he knows where she's going as she's leaving
			She is headed for the gaming side of town	

				You can't hide your lying dice
				Cause their noise breaks the disguise
				He can hear them roll inside
				There ain't no way to hide your lying dice	

			On the other side of town a group is waiting
			With fiery plans to put an orc to steel
			She drives on through the night anticipating
			Cause it makes her feel the way she wants to feel

			She rushes to the table, they roll together
			She whispers that she only got a three
			But she swears that soon she'll be dishing up some twenties
			Cause she'll cheat as long as no one else can see

				You can't hide your lying dice
				And your smile is a thin disguise
				Thought by now you'd realize
				The Gamemaster can see your lying dice

			She gets up and she pours a cup of coffee
			She doesn't want her character to fry
			She passes as they hand around the toffee
			And sits around until it's time to die

			She wonders how it ever got this crazy
			She thinks about a thief she ran in school
			Did she get tired, or did she just get lazy?
			She only thought she meant to steal a jewel	

			My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
			You set it up so well, so carefully
			Ain't it funny how your high roll didn't change things
			We still managed to kill off your PC

 				You can't hide your lying dice
				Can't escape the GM's eyes
				Thought by now it's no surprise
				There ain't no way to hide your lying dice
