The Lyrics

I CAN NEVER TAKE YOU AT YOUR WORD

Why can’t you ever do the things you promise?
Why can’t you ever do the things you say?
Why can you never be relied on?
It’s not just once, it happens every day.

Why have you got to be so inconsistent?
Mmm, you should be seen but never heard.
Why is it no-one ever trusts you?
I can never take you at your word.

You’re bad, so bad,
It’s a bad, bad situation.
And there’s more to this than is inferred.
It’s sad, so sad,
No wonder no-one trusts you,
It is plain to me
I can never take you at your word.

What in the world has made you like this?
Where in the world did you go wrong?
I’d like to know if I can help you.
It’s hard to know where you have gone.

You’re bad, so bad,
It’s a bad, bad situation,
And there’s more to this than is inferred.
It’s sad, so sad,
No wonder no-one trusts you,
It is plain to me,
I can never take you at your word.
