Thin Lizzy - Don't Believe A Word

Thin Lizzy - Don't Believe A Word



This was originally written as a ballad by Phil Lynott, before the guitarist Brian Robertson and drummer Brian Downey rocked it up.


The lyrics, which were written by Lynott, tell of a man warning his loved one not to believe his words as he cannot be relied upon. The chorus sums it up: "Don't believe a word/For Words are only spoken/Your Heart is like a promise made to be broken."




Lyrics


Don't believe me if I tell you

Not a word of this is true

Don't believe me if I tell you

Especially if I tell you

I'm in love with you


Don't believe me if I tell you

That I wrote this song for you

There just might be some other silly pretty girl

I'm singing it to


Don't believe a word

For words are so easily spoken

And your heart is just like that promise

Made to be broken


Don't believe a word

Cause words can tell lies

And lies are no comfort

When there's tears in your eyes


Don't believe me if I tell you

Not a word of this is true

Don't believe me if I tell you

Especially if I tell you

That I'm in love with you


Don't believe a word

No don't believe a word

Don't believe me don't believe me

Not a single word
