Can you believe her lies?

Whether the correctness of using lay or lie is proper, try the use of laid for size.

Such as: He laid a fly ball to center field and the center fielder had a hole in his glove, and the ball lay hidden in the grass, therefore an unearned home run was earned by the base runner; or in the use of the word lie, is it “now I lie me down to sleep” or would it be more apropriate to say, “I laid her down to sleep?” or “though I’ve lied,” yet by living right, allowances are made in forgiveness in “justice for all,” by killing the goose that “laid” the golden egg.

Best to lay the goose to rest.
