Don't Believe a Word

This song is by Gary Moore and appears on the album Back On The Streets (1978) and on the album A Retrospective (1995).

This song is a cover of "Don't Believe a Word" by Thin Lizzy.
One-two-three.

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 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,
'Cause words are only spoken.
And a heart is like a promise,
Meant to be broken.

Don't believe a word,
For 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.
Lord, don't believe a word.
Don't believe me, don't believe me.
Oh, not a single word.
Oh, yeah.
