Lyrics
(Chorus)Your actions speak louder than words.
Your actions speak louder than words.
You tell me that you love me, but you
Know it isn't true, because your
Actions speak louder than words.

I'm sittin' here a-thinkin' and I'm sittin' here a-drinkin',
Drownin' all my sorrows in this tonic and gin.
I tried to be fair; I tried to understand;
And I tried not to think that this was such a sin.
Well, I've been so open-minded that my brain fell right out,
But now I've picked it up and put it back in.

I gave you all my lovin'; I gave you all my heart;
And I trusted you to cherish and always care for me.
And I tried to let you know all the feelin's that I had.
I tried to explain and I tried to make you see.
Then I cried and I begged you to stop the things you do,
But you kept right on a-hurtin' me.

Your actions speak louder than words.
Your actions speak louder than words.
You tell me that you love me, but you
Know it isn't true, because your
Actions speak louder than words.

I've been such a fool!  I wonder when I'll learn.
'Cause I used to feel so guilty for making you feel blue.
'Cause you told me that you loved me; you told me that you cared;
And in spite of all your actions I believed that it was true.
Well I feel so stupid!  The writing on the wall says
I've been a goddam doormat for you.

You don't care who you hurt; you don't care who you burn,
Even if it's you, just as long as you have fun.
Fun at any cost - do you know what you have lost?
'Cause you'll never find another love like this one when it's gone.
I'm leavin' now and writing you this one last song,
And I'll send it to you when it's done.

Your actions speak louder than words.
Your actions speak louder than words.
You tell me that you love me, but you
Know it isn't true, because your
Actions speak louder than words.
