UPDATE: It seems like this is popular with google... I'm guessing you did a search for "Why would I lie about how much coke you had?" looking for lyrics to a song you heard and dug. I love that song... it's Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend and is definitely where I got the title (after many other attempts at writing through that). BUT... the line is actually "how much coal you had" because they are all faux upper crusty like that and getting "American Jane Austen"-like. Still -- it's a great song, the best on the album in my opinion -- now you have the title and can track it down.

Its funny cause it sounds like he says 'coke', but to see that its 'coal' makes way more sense. What I find surprising is that anyone who's done coke latches on to that line and develops an affinity for the song. I can only imagine having known many a cokehead that many the old addage strikes a chord with so many - you cant trust a cokehead.

Rubbish. I have never had Coke but it make no sense at all to say "Coal" really? its "Coke" and thats it :-)
