The only thing to do is tell the truth - but there's no reason to go into all the gory details. I was fired last year. My boss said "It's just not a fit any more." That was true, and basically it's all I said about the situation, except to add "And I've resolved never again to twist myself into something I'm not just to get a job" which showed that I have learned from the experience. If you were fired for cause, I think saying something like "I made some mistakes that I regret, but I now know how I would better handle the situation" might be the way to go. Good luck!
