Meanings of "A lie has no legs"

Engels

A lie has no legs. Because a lie has nothing to support it ("no legs" to stand on), it is unsustainable and can be easily recognized and dismissed as a lie.
For example - A: "I'm really worried that this rumor about me is going to reach the whole school." B: "No way—a lie has no legs, so the truth will definitely prevail."

Turks

Bir yalanın ayakları yoktur. Çünkü bir yalanın onu destekleyecek hiçbir şeyi yoktur. Yalan sürdürülemez ve kolayca fark edilebilir.

"A lie has no legs" in lyrics

Harlej - Why I Have Feeling, That

When I want good leaves I have to well muck
The best is connect pleasant with useful
A lie has no legs but can move for long distance.
I know that everything, but why I know it?
