lyrics

I'm tired of all the excuses, I'm sick of all the lies
I'm done with all the abuses, your jive and your alibis
You said that you loved me truly
(When I drink I say all sorts of things)
You said that you'd buy me a diamond ring
But doing and saying are two separate things

Two separate things, not even the same league
Do what you say, say what you mean
Doing and saying are two separate things

Well, I don't need another monkey on my back,
And I don't want to see another good time turn bad
I've had about all the bad luck that a man can have
I'm not going back to that
I said that I loved you truly
(When you drink you say all sorts of things)
I said that I'd get you a diamond ring
Doing and saying are two separate things

It's funny how things keep moving forward
Time tends to dull the sting
What used to seem so important
Is now just a memory
I said that I loved you truly
And now we're as happy as can be
You said that you'd give a baby in the spring
Yeah, well, doing and saying are two separate things

about

Tatters & Rags Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn post-punk skronky-tonkers Tatters & Rags tackle familiar themes of heartache, loneliness, and the bottle, but with a love for the traditional fable that suggests Harlan Howard on a bender with the Brothers Grimm.
